Definitely slower and I have a tendency to straighten out the round a bout. Excellent observation 😎

Oh for sure! I went from a SUV with 255/45/20ZR tires and sporty suspension to one with 315/70/17 MT tires and soft suspension.

Zero f#%@s given for potholes and uneven pavement! Plus, I plan to never get suck in the sand again...

I definitely have noticed a change in my driving habits. I drive faster, spend more time on dirt, and love to throw it sideways in the snow!

I've found myself being more conservative, and trying to be aware of the size versus what's outside the truck. I'm used to cars, so that's caused me to be more aware of where I am and where everyone else is.

I originally tried to worry about MPGs and watch the gauge, but now I use the triple readout and ignore how I drive after seeing I got better mileage that way. The gauge is fine, but I think paying attention to gearing, RPM, grade, and all that will give you better mileage since you can feel when its working harder (burning more fuel) to maintain speed.

I have noticed it likes to be driven harder and shifted more aggressively, its me being careful because its new and breaking-in. Speaking of, I just got my third oil change at 4000 miles, so I think its time for Shadow to see full boost 🐎
