This Dodge diesel is a verry good truck, fun to drive and a lot more pickup speed than a Chevy Duramax diesel. I drove a Duramax for abought 5000 miles or so and there is no compairison to the Dodge diesel except for the fuel mileage. I get abought 15 to 16 mpg on the highway. I put on 300 to 400 highway miles on a week. Even with a k&n intake kit no better mileage. I have just over 20,700 miles on it and it's going back for the 2nd time to be looked at for the mileage problem.
Fun to drive. Lots of power. Excellent handling. Excellent sound system
I think 4x4's should come with on and off road tires standard. Highway tires are useless in the field when the ground are wet. Also they should have kept the ashtray on the dash instead of the little cupholder ashtray. And they should had kept the adjustable cup holders. Plus they need to put back the bag clip on the dashboard. Basicly I like the 2003 dash setup better than the 2006 models. I wish they kept the (DEE) 6 speed standard transmission because I got better fuel mileage with it.I'm getting 21mpg a round town and 19 on the highway running 70mph. With the tranny Iwas get 23mpg in town and on the highway 28 to 30mpg. I also I miss the power lumbar.
Put the ashtray back on the dash. Put the adjustable cup holder back. And put back the power lumbar back on the seat. It's differcult to adjust while driving down the road. Set the overdrive up when you are running 70mph. It's not running at 2500rpms. Have it set at 2000rpms.
