I've been reading this forum for a few months now and finally bought one. Got a Big Horn Crew Cab in black. I didn't initially want all the Bells and Whistles but my wife saw the look on may face so we did it. I've never owned such a nice vehicle. I'll finish the paperwork tomorrow. I reset the trip odometer on my way home via the freeway and set cruise at 70mph. Even though it was only 25 mi I got 33mpg. The Nissan Armada I traded in (great car) couldn't on it's best day get 18mpg. Anyway the dealer was great and I'll finish up with him tomorrow. DEF is 1/3 full as is the fuel tank. At age 50 I thought the air ride was a waste of money till I saw it at it's lowest setting and now I think my Mom can get in without assist.
Oh and this is my first Diesel ever. I was very concerned but after going here and other places I feel good about my purchase. If my MPG's keep up it will actually cut my gas bill in half so it's really not that expensive after all.
BTW cheapest Diesel I have seen out here is $3.43/gal. And most places Diesel is only 20 cents more than Regular Unleaded. So I'm feeling pretty good right now.
Fingers crossed,
Eric

Congratulations Eric! I bought my ED from OC Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, but it's on order so you beat me! I'm guessing that the truck is brand new with less than a hundred miles on it - if that?! Anyway DEF fluid is supposed to be good for 10K (probably w/out towing). Point is if you have next to now miles on the truck, then the dealer should top off the DEF for you.

Thanks I'm not a "typical" Californian but lived here most my life. Trend change here on a weekly basis and we're taxed to death but it's a great state if you ignore the stupid politicians. :crying:
