when the weather gets warmer I will be looking into this as I agree it sits a little high. and with the mileage....Im sure it affected it, but it wasnt anything too noticable.

yes you can. I have them there because I wanted the LED light bar as low as I could get it but an inch or two behind the windshield so theres no glare on my dash at night/when theres dust on the windshield.

Ya I wouldn't think it would effect it that much. I get bad MPG anyways so. I just like the look of the roof racks up there with the spare tire in them. That's the only reason I want one, but it will have to wait till summer. Got other things the truck needs first.

That thing is pretty nice. I'm not to sure on the spare tire on the back like a Jeep but that's a nice looking truck.
