I don't even have one. 19+ mostly city, but there is a thread out there. Notice I didn't type "use the search!" in all caps.

I hate it when people do that to me, just an illustration. I don't mind answering the same question more than a couple times. Keeps my post count up.

Just to add to the data bank. Just under 240 miles on the last fill up. I don't usually run much past half empty before refuling, so those miles include a trip down past Chicago to Indiana and back and also up past Milwaukee and back. 25.7 calculated at the pump with no air dam. The Interstate Tollway around Chi Town isn't always free and clear, so slow downs included.

As part of my negotiating to buy the truck, I had the air dam removed because we offroad frequently to trail heads and lake access points. Therefore I have no comparisons to offer. Given my current DIC display, however, I am VERY PLEASED with the truck's performance and front end looks!

27.6 MPG over 30K miles with no air dam and Cooper AT3 tires, GDE tune. Got 35 MPG today driving mostly uncrowded freeways with the cruise set at 65, some in town and some 75 MPH, but mostly cruise set at 65 driving. If the air dam helps, it does not help much and I prefer not to have it.

Get rid of these silly panels too while monkeying around in that area and let your transmission cooler breathe free!

No need to remove the grille. Use a long needle nose pliers, pinch the clips, push them down out the bottom and toss the panels into the recycle bin with the air dam :cool:
