Only been pulled over once and that's cause I screamed up this cops hill and it was a dead end, ducker came outside and chased me in his cop car. All he did was ask questions then gave me a warning.
nice man. That's good to hear! Running AWD right?

Yes running great and AWD. Currently getting 13.4 MPG city and 15-16 highway on 35s. Can keep up with a 5.3 silverado, barely. I'm really hoping to turbo my 5.0 next year.

Yes 4.10s. Big difference from the 3.73s that were in the explorer for the short month I drove it. Tried racing a 6.0 Denali but it dusted me

I'm actually running open manifolds, I just think that sounds stupid haha. I am going to be getting OBX headers, same exact as Torque monster for half the price, when I get my exhaust installed.
