In my experience, when I owned American cars, there wasn't much of a reserve when the light came on. You better find a gas station right away. Japanese cars seem to build their warning light system...

Great looking truck! The SS bumpers look great.

It looks like you have KDSS sway bars. Which rock sliders did you use? Did you have it custom made?

Thanks!
