At 80mph.
I was lucky to get 300 miles to a tank on my F150. Even on a highway trip on the stock size tires it wouldn't get much over 300. I had a 5.4 and a 27 gallon tank.


Today I drove the Sierra almost 400 miles and still have 1/8 tank.

I paid $270 in change for my 20" SR flood. Over 10k lumens.

This truck doesn't have an oil dipstick. Not just no dipstick, I can't find where the whole damn thing is supposed to go. Supposed to be passenger side, no hole there. Has drivers side dipstick oil pan, block isn't machined for it.

That's a good sign right? Wonder how or if they checked the oil.

Been trying to decode the block since my last post. Supposed to be a 350. Block casting numbers don't match anything anywhere, but the stamped code decodes as a 305 from Ontario 2-4-1977 from an Impala.

I had the spray in bedliner done in the wheel wells. Only an extra $150. Only problem is they are hard to keep clean. Holds dirt.

We spun through my Ford dealer and he wants an F-150. BAD.

But I digress - while at the lot we looked at a 2012. It was a screw with 55,000. The guy had already needed new tires and had a set of BF Goodrich ATs. I'm guessing they were a size bigger mounted on the same rims I have. But WOW.

The difference in appearance is DRASTIC with just that little bit of aggressive tread and profile.

And it had a cap like mine as well. Didn't look nearly as old mannish with the more ballsy tire.
Probably 275/70/18. Just an inch taller but same width. I agree, I've noticed the same thing. The aggressive tread makes the tire look bigger than it really is. Even if you stick with the same size and just get an aggressive tire it makes a huge difference.
