Mileage: 7,268

Just finished making a run to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Round trip of just under 470 miles.

The Sierra cruises nicely around 70. Fuel economy with the current setup averages right at 16mpg.

It appears we picked up about 3/1oths mpg with the Access tonneau installed as I normally get about 15.7 on this particular road trip in the same driving conditions.

The more aggressive Cooper S/T Maxx tires and Corsa performance exhaust have increased interior noise a lot over the bone-stock setup. But it’s a tolerable noise.

Was asked several times along the way about the truck. All positive. Several asked specifically about the Superwinch Talon winch with the blue winch rope instead of cable.

Rolled into Gulfport, MS, and one guy came walking up and said, “Now that’s a real man-cave ride!”

Does it get any better? — Bruce Smith / Editor
