Blue Deuce, does your truck have the rear coil springs with factory air bag assist?

With the new HD trucks, it is an either or option from the dealer.

No air bags on mine...coil springs yes with the stabilizer shock on the differential.

Did 1,600 miles over the weekend without the trailer and averaged almost 18 mpg! My 1500 with the 5.7 best mileage on the same trip was a hair over 19. Yeah...I'm very happy! Best trade I've ever made vehicle wise...love this truck!

Here is a picture of our new setup. Think I am going to have to buy a taller drop hitch. Oh well, I think we will be pleased with this setup for many years.

Hey all, little update on my Ram 2500.

This past weekend we pulled the TT to Texas Motor Speedway and the truck did awesome! Averaged 11.6 mpg on the way there and 10.3 mpg on the way home. Strong head wind on the way home so that was the reason for the lower milage. I was expecting 8 to 10 to be honest so thrilled with those numbers!

Overall I'm still thrilled with the Ram! Even found 87 octane for 2.53 a gallon. I made it from just north of San Antonio to the track on a single tank...my 2011 Ram 1500 last time making the same trip, with a TT weighing 1,000 pounds lighter took 2 tanks of gas (same tank size in each truck).

Great pulling power, great stability too. Set cuise on 63 and off she went...chugging along. Had several folks ask about the thruck at the CC too, felt like a salesman talking about it...lol!

Great purchase and really made towing enjoyable.
