Photos of my 2011 GT

Hi all, here are a few photos of my 2011 GT, Kona Blue, 6 speed, 3.31's. I recently drove out to Las Vegas and back from Denver. About 1600 miles overall, a very easy drive, I70 to I15 which takes me through some beautiful scenery.

Averaged about 26 mpg, the 3.31's helped I'm sure. I did most of the trip at about 78-80 mph with the cruise on but I did do some 6-3 downshifts to let the motor run up to redline every once in a while. I have the Roush a/b's so I like to hear the exhaust every now and then. Of course, I launched hard on the on-ramp after every gas stop too

In addition to the decent gas mileage, I didn't burn any motor oil and the air conditioning ran ice-cold the whole way. I couldn't be happier.

Just an example of the cool rock formations in Utah:


Just outside of Golden, CO:




Stopped at the Salt Wash Overlook in Utah, off I70 a few miles west of the turnoff to Moab:


Here's me peeking over the edge, it's a sheer drop there! The wind was blowing incredibly hard.



Enjoy!

There's a couple sections through Utah where they're testing an 80 mph speed limit. It was so strange to see "80" posted on the sign. A few people were definitely using it as an excuse to speed like crazy. A BMW suv shot past me doing a good 120mph or so. I thought about giving chase but then thought of the potential consequences so I kept it at 80(ish)!

Good choice and nice pics! Those 3.31s will come in handy if more states go to 80 mph speed limits.

Yeah, I need to, here in Colorado, where I'm a mile high, the sun is that much more fierce.

I think my wife is a keeper, I told her that I was thinking of regearing the diff and found a place with a good price to do it, and her response was, "get it done with the best service, not the best price."

She also wants a lift kit on her Jeep Grand Cherokee. Does it get any better?
