Nice truck! I bet you can't wait to tow with it. It'll be a world of difference. You may have to tweak the WDH a little. BTW, my Ford is a black crew cab and NOTHING looks better than a clean black truck! [Keeping it that way is another story]

Funny thing is our car is a black Malibu, I know all about trying to keep them clean.
And yes, I really wish they would get done with our camper, so I can see how it does towing!!

I am working on trading up to a 14 2500HD crew. Will be happy if it gets done. Do you get a new 2 1/2" shank receiver for towing or get a sleeve and use my existing 2" shank?

It should come with an adapter, I made sure it was still with the truck.

Very nice truck!
I'm certain you'll enjoy towing with it.

I do believe if we drive it nice, it will do ok on gas mileage.
Sweet looking truck, I like it.
That's not bad gas mpg either.

I'm really hoping they will get our camper done soon, really looking forward to towing with this, plus I'm curious how it does on gas mileage. It also has a back up camera which is a nice bonus

After alott of miles and alott of reading on gas mileage it seems to me that the average for about all properly matched larger TV/TT combo's gas or diesel is around 8-10 MPG. If you fall in there some where call it a good day. My 3500 5.9 ram cummins combo pulling around 10k I average between 8.5 and 9.5 MPG.
