Yeah I plan on it . I really was opposed to shells before I got this truck but this one is kind of growing on me.

I have a hard top too, i thought it would be MORE aerodynamic to me honest and the weight over the rear adds to the traction (mines rwd) i presume yours is too) when not in 4WD

I quite like the back on for winter, am seriously thinking of taking it off in March/Apr time though.
I keep a dog cage in mine but will just get a cover for the cage in summer, should be fine!

Here is mine Ben, i've since had the side windows tinted too, not quite as black as the rear but not far off.

Hey everyone,
Not sure if I am supposed to keep posting questions here or break off to another part of the forum but I'll keep posting here until I get told off.
Looking at my 1st mild mod (if i can call it that)
http://www.vorteccyclone.com/index.html
Take a look and tell me what you think. Looks like it might be more of a sham then something that will actually improve my truck's performance. I thought that it may be a good way to get some more MPG and also get some power =D.
I was doing a little more poking around looking for some solutions to my poor MPG, and found that living in a cold area may have an effect on my mpg.

Other then this the only other reasons that I know that may contribute to poor mpg is what was posted by here everyone.Thanks
-Ben
