    Haha...I'm the same way. I sold my first X5 after I got the HD in the summer, so the X5 just sat. I got an $800 alarm installed that controls the windows, my tailgate, remote start from 2 miles away, etc. Well come to learn after the fact that the HD is useless in the rain, let alone in the summer! Problem is I work second shift at Boeing and I love coming outside to a warm truck vs being sensible and driving the AWD SUV when the weather sucks lol

    maybe if you're getting 10-12mpg on the highway now, lol.

    the trucks were rated 12 city 16 highway from the factory, btw...this is something that should have been known before you bought the truck.

    I have a bunch of mods and a great tune and get 17 highway...I do have the stock belt fan, and stock waterpump though.
