Honest mileage, 15 average around town and highway, towing 10k 13' high 5th wheel, 11 to 12mpg.
My opinion, anyone claiming 20mpg is full of it with these trucks, it wieghs 7200lbs empty.

Intake, exhaust and 30-100hp Quadzilla box, full guages, pyro, trans temp, engine oil temp and boost.
No tranny issues it has the 48RE automatic which has been a pretty solid transmission for Dodge. Mine has a aftermarket PML deep pan and the fluid has been changed every 15k miles.
The only work done to it has been front brake pads, one of the front axle U joints, both front and rear driveshafts rebuilt: done with aftermarket U joints with zerk fittings, factory U joints do not have them.

Send an email to the mods, and they can change your user id. They did it for me. Nice rig and good luck with the sale.

I saw this truck about a month or so ago when Mac towed his father's boat down to RI for some Yamaha work. It was the first time I met Mac or saw this truck. I think my comment was "wow, nice new truck" I was amazed it did not just roll of the showroom floor the truck is spotless and has a hell of a presence, like BIG presence. Also Mac is a straight up guy! My guess is any work he has done to it was done right.

Good luck on the sale and congrats to the future new owner.

That truck could easily get 20 plus mpg. Your 4.10 gears are the major problem with your fuel mileage. If towing over 10,000 pounds the 4.10's could start to be an advantage. I ran 3.42's in a 2006 automatic that made 844 hp at the rear wheels on diesel only, over 1,000 at the wheels on nitrous. It turned in 23 mpg with the cruise on 78 mph (hand checked). It's all in the combination. The heaviest I pulled with that truck was around 10,000 pounds. Needless to say, it didn't break a sweat. Your truck has lots of potential for power and fuel mileage. It's all in the combination of parts.

The 4.10s do not help the mileage but the transmision does not have to work as hard.
Where did you get 3.42s? I am pretty sure you could only get 3.73 or 4.10s with the AAM axles.

Nice truck! I had an '03 2500 SLT Quad 4x4 w/ the HEMI, auto and 4.10s and it pulled very well. I can't imagine what this rig will do with the Cummins and all the upgrades!

Good luck with the sale.

I bought my 3.42's from a place called Randy's Ring and Pinion. I had 3.73's. I had run out of rpm at the top end of the quarter mile, so I switched to 3.42's to pull more mph. I could drive to the dragstrip, not change anything, and run 131 mph in the quarter mile. Fun stuff.. It also dropped my cruise rpm on the interstate so I could still run just below 80 and get great fuel mileage.

MacCTD - I don't know where you're advertising but my 04' sold in less than a month to a guy out of Canada (for your original asking price). There were also several other serious buyers interested out of Canada and the Great Lakes area. If you haven't already done so you might consider putting an add on DTR and TDR.
