Had my 04 for 3.5 years now. Have had to replace 3 lights (1-fog, 1 headlight and 1 brake light) and the lift pump. Replaced my Michelins with Bridgestones and am still "paying" for them. Cost me almost 5 mpg. Still get 22+ , but the 28 @ 62 mph was pretty sweet. She loves 75 and 80 , but you better have deep pockets , 17 mpg empty 10.5 pulling fully enclosd car trailer. Bought it when I retired hoping it would easily outlast me. So far so good .
Raw power, rides like a "caddy" loaded.
Needs much "taller" final drive for us highway dwellers. Gear it for 1650 rpm @ 75 mph.
great truck does a great job on fuel
economy averaging 20 plus miles per
gallon and maintence is a big plus oil
change every 15000 miles verses
competition 3000 miles never gave me
any trouble very reliable and power is
also very important it has more power
than compatition but i wouldn't mind
having more power
I love new cummins diesel especially
when it comes to work, I like those new
large disc brakes and that its much
quiter than erlier models
would like to have larger fuel tank
approximately 42 gallons, softer seats,
geared slightly higher when you are
driving 75 mph that your engine is
running 1900 rpm this would increase
fuel economy when your going out of
town and don't have to stop for fuel as
