Just an update

Just a little info at 85,000 miles, aftera 1200 mile round trip to Smokin'.

I weighed the truck while at Smokin', weighed in at 9150 lbs. 1/2 tank, with 80 gallons in the bed. Other than that there was one cooler, probably around 100 lbs.

I averaged 16.5 on the way up, and 15.5 on the way home. Not sure why the mileage dropped, only difference was the cooler was full.

I think I am going to dynamat the whole cab. Going to get the dynamat from Merchant, and tear out the interior. Thinking about getting captains from the second row of a tahoe and remove the rear bench.

Be sure to let me know how the dynamat works out. Been thinking of doing that as well.
And I didn't realize Merchant carried it.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

I have heard good things about dynamat. I wouldn't mind knowing how it turns out.

Dynamat is a sound deadening mat with adhesive on one side.

I want to do dynamat in my 4800. I hear it works wonders for vibrations & cab noise.

My GMC is so quiet inside, I have no need for dynamat.
