Mine arrived. Thanks!

Where did you buy it? KTM of Gresham will lower it 1.5 inches for about $300-400. Yes, it notches your clearance a bit, but its still got a ton of travel.

How do you add more fuel when the stove is still lit? Can you simply pour more from the Heet bottle? That sounds like a bad idea. (Pouring on more fuel, not the stove.)
