Heck, I don't even know whose cup it is anymore... Nextel still around?  That just doesn't sound right.

Got the alignment done, feels real good on the road now, thanks to Scotty and crew!  It was noted that my SPC upper control arms, even though adjustable, still needed shims as they maxed out on the short side up front, with caster at 6.2.  In the future, if I have them off, I think I'll have each side of the tie rod shortened about 1/4", then it should have enough adjustment. 

Gassed her up this afternoon, somehow I've got about 3 gallons of fuel missing in about 12 or so miles of driving, and some break-in and tuning time.  Hmmmm...  I guess I'll see tomorrow on the trip into town for the weigh station/Recon-Streetrod inspection how mileage goes.  Definitely need a 5 speed in it someday.  3gears
