Better gas mileage with a tonneau cover.

As I was driving to work the other day, after installing my new tonneau cover, I was wondering about whether or not it was helping the gas mileage.

I am sure it will not be an immediate notice, if any at all, but has anybody experienced mpg gains from using a tonneau cover? How about a loss of mpg?

Switching front bumper for air intake bumper

I have a 2009 silverado ltz. My front bumper doesn't have the center air intake hole that everybody is mounting light bars in. I was curious what year silverado or trim model came with the air intake hole?

Trouble with in-channel visors?

I just priced out some window visors for my 2016 Double Cab Silverado.
The outfitter mentioned that a lot of customers were experiencing an issue with the in-channel style where the window wouldn't close fully becuase it sensed an obstruction in the opening...
I've had the outside mount style before and enjoyed their functionality, but found they are prone to breakage and look kind of tacky.
I was wondering if anyone has experienced this issue ...

Windshield wiper problem

I noticed the other day that when I used my windshield wipers, the drivers side one didn't go all the way back down and was flapping passed the edge of the windshield when they were on. I pushed it back down to its normal position and now it goes about 3/4 of the way up and goes back down. Does anybody know how to fix this problem? Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

I was thinking of using that textured rockguard spray and then using ...
