    Somebody before me actually put Xtreme lettering from an S10 on the doors.
    Not a fan but don’t want to take them off.

    Not too bad. I’m getting about 11mpg.:D
    Drives just like a 6.0 with nothing on the hitch.

    Yeah, 10-11 was about what I got. Until I hooked a trailer to it. Then the fuel guage seemed to drop at the same speed the tach rose!
    My beater has the 6.0. It gets 10mpg.
    I let it run for 15 minutes to warm up in the winter, the wait with my girls for the bus.
    I get in and just drive. Plow snow, haul wood. It gets 10..

    Nothing likes gas like a 460 BBF, 9 MPG down hill with a tailwind. Before I got my Cummins I had a 1989 F250 with a 7.3 IDI C6 automatic and full floater Dana 60 with 4:56 gears. It got 8 MPG loaded or not. Sold it to my Dad but we still share it, beater truck, probably going to wind up with a service body before too much longer.

    Burban has the Bose stereo, 4wd, power and leather, 4L85E HD transmission and G80 locking rear end.
    And it has new tires. I love new tires.
    Cheap enough to pay cash too.

    Heres my beater truck.
    20180403_183242.jpg

    190k on it now. 6.0, 4L80, 4.10 gears.
    There is 720ish lbs. of sandbags in the back up against the tailgate. Makes it easier to plow when the trucks not sideways!

    Yes I walked away mid conversation. You were boring me to death and my SURVIVAL instincts kicked in.

    Nice!
    What rotating assembly and heads did you use?
    Did you start with a standard low deck 454 block or use the 427 tall deck?
    I like the tall deck because you can use a longer rod in them.

    Nice! I'm looking for one of those 'Burban 2500's with the 8.1 to replace my '95 tbi454 'burban. I'm not having much luck finding anything with under 200k. that doesn't look like a plow/salt rig that's all rusted out.

    I find it amusing that we had that conversation with Elliott on the way to school today, he didn't believe me.

    "Dad, you're just teasing me right?"
