Update so far on milage...all city driving I'm averaging 12.1 mpg. The EVIC says 12.3 so not far off from my hand calculation.

No issues or problems to mention about the truck. Not towed with it yet as we don't have our TT yet. Hoping in the next couple weeks and then we'll plan our first trip.

So far, loving this thing! Feels really nice when driving, very comfortable, plenty of power for daily driving.

I expected about 13 to 15 daily driving so a little below that right now but I typically do some highway miles and just haven't so far.

Milage is at 13.6 now, little more highway miles this time but still mostly city. Planning to head out on Labor Day weekend though for a 10+ hour drive to the in-laws so we'll see how she does on the highway.

I picked up a nail in my rear passenger tire last weekend (at a friends house) and it was replaced under my Road Advantage warranty, no cost to me! The tire was $300 and then installation and balance the total was $351...but zero to me. I've always bought warranties and such but never used them. Guess it finally paid off for me.

No issues with the truck other than the tire but that really wasn't a problem, more of an incident. Loving this thing still and cannot wait to hook up the White Hawk and pull it!

Can't find this on the Ram site. The 3500 is 370 hp, but for the 2500 there are no disclaimers against the mega cab.

Just thought I'd share and get your thoughts. I really like the MegaCab, but don't want to lose the hp to get it. Am looking at one like yours, but blue.

So, spoke to dealer today, and yep. Couldn't get an answer why they decrease the HP. But, not looking at MegaCab now.

I think I found the info on another forum (ramforumz.com)...dealer confirmed it for me while I was emailing them.

I am not proud to say that I was in the 8 MPG area!!! However,in its defense it was mountainous terrain(up and down hills) and my first time towing with this truck,and I couldnt wait to get away so MPG didnt matter as much as distance from Baltimore did!!!!!!
As for regular driving I am only averaging about 12 MPG also..I joined that forum and a few others to get as much info as I possibly can..
