...or something like this:With all that space on the back - and maybe just for the trip across half the country - it might be fun to have a sign that says "I may be slow, but I am ahead of you!"
Definitely a nice build. I can't wait for you to get moved, settled in and get pictures of the Camo paint job.
Rad. So you made it without any hiccups? We are moving to East Texas by the end of the year hopefully from Tacoma. Our M1090 dump truck (25k lbs empty) has been consistent at 5.25 mpg. Seems with the size of your rig you are fine if you can get close to the 5mpg.Well, if it wasn't broken in before, it sure is now- we did a little over 2,000 miles in four days on our way to Texas, almost all of it wide-open on the limiter at 2,100 rpm and 66 mph. I didn't calculate the fuel mileage, but off the top of my head, the 4.5mpg figure sounds believable...
Absolutely zero- not so much as a check engine light. We didn't even have a spare tire.Rad. So you made it without any hiccups?

I was aware of the power reduction, but I didn't know the exact numbers. We used the 2-7.1 Highway setting the whole way.Just a little information, you were only utilizing 380+- hp during your trip in standard 0-2 ton on road CTIS settings.
If you want to feel the additional power, turn CTIS off on the rocket switch, and while in 7th gear throttle down, touch the 15 ton mode on CTIS. You’ll hear the turbo spool a good bit harder and you’ll start gaining speed
