We made it back... definitely a long haul @1600+ miles

The truck runs great and has a super clean interior... it does need a small amount of roof repair, but all in all a great truck

I will post some pics up later  :steeringwheel:

we averaged between 10-14 mpg....overall maybe 12... not bad considering the terrain and road speed of 60-70+ mph... also  80+ ounces of coffee and 4 beers...still tired LOL  :sleepy:
