I added this unique shaped chrome hood deflector and it changed the whole front look. Too much chrome, I wonder if it reflects too much to the driver forward.

How are you liking the LMM?? What kind of mileage are you knocking down with it

To be honest, it鈥檚 about the same as my LBZ.

As I was getting it ready for service, adding on options, equipment, tires, etc, running around town I kept my foot in it all the time with rabbit starts and opening it up on the freeway, along with long idles and short trips. Everything wrong to do for gaining the best mileage and yet it still averaged just over 10.5 after adjustments for larger tires and the speedo being off 4mph at 70.

Working, pulling, stop-n-go traffic鈥t鈥檚 somewhere in the 11-12 range maybe, but I haven鈥檛 really checked it much. The LBZ pulls twice the weights and is currently running in the 9s, sometimes dipping into the 8s of late. Seems to be chronically getting worse mileage, I was in the 10s last summer and that was with extensive idling for the A/C on 100+* days.

It may be time for a new powercore filter. I placed a bulk order on filters yesterday, so we鈥檒l see today if a new one makes a difference.

10-Wix Oil Filters, 10-Wix Trans Filters, 2-Wix Powercore Filters, = $260 to my door. :D

That is not bad. Mine knocked down about 7-8 in town before the Mods. It kicked it up to 10-11 and 13-14 on the road. I was just curious.....
