Sweet setup! Also like the badge placement ;)

How do you like the front bumper? We've be trying to decide which one we want to go with... so far Southern Style Speed is our favorite.

It being a 4Runner, every time I add to it I watch the MPG drop. Down to about 12 now, not fully loaded and towing the off raid trailer yet. But price you have to pay to play.
I'm at 16.5 to 17 MPG. Worst I've seen fully loaded is 13.0 with a 30MPH headwind. The Turtleback trailer is probably going to bring it down significantly as well. Running 40 and 45 PSI helps gain about 1.5 MPG.

Our trip is delayed until next year. My parents we had to move them to a retirement home, Dads 90 Moms 86. We are planning on several more trips this year before we leave, life has a way of changing plans, part of the journey. We will be at Expo West in Asheville NC in Oct if any one is going there, would like to meet. Here is a picture of our Rig.

Gas mileage ave over 4600 miles from Alabama-Az-Ut-Co-Ks and back 12.6 fully loaded and towing. Not as bad as I feared. Waiting on a Super Charger to come out though. Struggled through the mountains some.
