    I like it. I'm able to get mid 20's mpg on highway on Race tune and blow smoke on the Extreme tune. Done free mods on the air box and turbo inlet pipe is ported and polished. Have you done the high idle mod on your truck?

    Yes I have done the high idle mod and love it. Truck warms up so much faster. Didn't have it last year and had to wait for ever for the truck to warm up enough to clear up the windows.

    Wish the weathermen would be held accountable for their actions like normal working people. Get paid huge money for being wrong, we would get fired for much less in a normal job.

    Nice to see that New Englanders aren't the only one who ***** about the weatherman!

    No kidding. We were told to expect 4-6" We ended up with about 1-2" on the grass and 1/4-3/4 of an inch on the pavement.

    I dropped the blade at a couple spots that don't get salt or have elderly clientele and everything else was salted away.

    Truck looks good. Sorry about the no snow. We ended up with 11 inchs and it was **** heavy. I live in the country and had a 4ft drift that went from the road to my garage, about 150ft.

    Would rather have had 11" than 0.6" at least could have some fun. Then I may have got to try the JD CT332 in the snow.

    We just got a JD 323D a day before the storm and it worked awesome. The tracks are great. It lost power before ever losing traction, I was very impressed.

    that's crazy, we are usually the ones who get ****** for snow, but we ended up with i think 2.2 inches which was enough to go...my city in particular gets missed more than the surrounding cities...i have seen countless storms come straight at us, break apart, go around, and hit all surrounding cities...they call it the Tonganoxie Split which is supposably BS but i'm a believer, or at least SOMETHING is making these storms split apart...

    our first predictions were 4-6, then they dropped it to 2-4...i'm happy with anything over 2
