Re: Help me decide. Diesel or HEMI

I wanted the diesel. I bought the diesel. I like the diesel.

Just so it's clear. I'm biased.

I recommend the diesel.

Hey Bob,

We are currently testing how the guard effects aerodynamics, vehicle cooling (hard when it's cold outside) and wind noise. So far everything looks great!

Those are some great ideas....

Thanks for the photo. I always wondered what that hole was for! LOL! On the 5.7L the sump plug is not positioned there, so the hole just seems arbitrary.
