Use Photo Bucket to post pictures. If the truck is tuned right and not blowing smoke you should get 15 to 20 MPG's.

it's in middle tennessee, a local attorney/ coach of the baseball team gave it to the baseball and softball teams to sell raffle tickets to raise money for our new fields. i've bought 2 tickets ($100 each) and imma buy 2 more the day of the raffle at $10 each. only 248 will be sold. i'm really needing this truck so i can get a vehicle to go to UTK next fall. 135 mile trip. so i need to do mods to get the MPGs up.
