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,

Your gas bill will be cut in half?! That's awesome. What are you driving now? A Hummer?
