Got the new S&B CAI in on Halloween night! I didn't expect the CAI to make the truck so much louder! It's got a much more meaty sound to it now. I was able to take it on a little trip Saturday just 50 miles down the road going 65 mph and I averaged 17.5mpg!!! I wasn't dreaming of seeing numbers that good! My average for highway before was maybe 13.5-14 mpg, so a huge increase. I don't know if the K&N that was on there before was that dirty or what the deal was but I'm definitely happy. It looks like overall average I'm now sitting at around 14-14.5 mpg which is up from my 12-12.5 mpg before. I'll keep an eye on the next couple of tanks to see where it sits tho.
Overall I'm very happy with the S&B!

Default Hunting

I was able to break the truck in a little more this past weekend since it was opener deer season. Had a total of 9 deer in the bed of the truck at one point including one good sized 5x5 that I am going to have mounted and a 5x6 a friend got.
I did however manage to get the truck stuck pretty good while trying to get across a small creek. Had to have a GMC with mud tires pulling me and a 1 ton ram pulling the GMC to get me out. Decided after that incident that I definitely need to get away from the street tires that are currently on the truck. Will maybe start looking for some winter wheel tire set up on craigslist. Either way I had a great time pushing the truck and only ended up with a small bend on the tailgate corner and the exhaust tip got dented in.
