    Leaving it set to 400hp for now. Not going to win any races but I drive 59 mph anyhow. Set for high torque, low rpm. Going to try and get 8.0 mpg. Let you know how that goes.

    lol, not too proud of it but right after I posted I saw that THIS was actually my 2000th post.....

    A guy asking how to setup a hookah in his moving truck

    This may be the singularly worst idea in trucking I have ever heard of. That includes the team that cut a hole in the floor so they could take a crap without stopping.

    Good luck with the truck, where did you get it from? Auto shift like Flood has, that will be a change for you both. I love my ISX it is much better pulling mountains than my old dd15.
