new 1500 big horn quad cab in cherry red!!
Well ladies and gents, I finally made the big jump to purchase my new rig...I just got it yesterday (8-28-13) and i must say i am absolutely impressed...running boards will be in in a few days and then it will be complete....well short of the expensive 600 nav activation lol...anyway the truck is absolutely beautiful inside and out...the 8 spd so far is working flawlessly and so is everything else it seems. I picked it up with 11 miles on it and a full 32g tank. i now have over 60 miles on it and needle hasnt budged off full yet lol...alot better than the 9mpg i was getting on my old truck lol.

i only have one question....does the hemi with the 8spd still cut down to 4cyl and go into "eco" mode? the 6sp i test drove other day does show the eco mode but my new rig doesnt...anyone know the answer? thanks!!

What? No pictures?

You have to go into your settings on your radio and turn the display on for Eco.

When this is on it doesn't mean your using 4-cylinders (mds), it just means you are getting optimum fuel efficiency with the way you are driving when it is on.

Congrats on the truck and post some pics, WE LUV PICS ON HERE!!!!!

Complete you say or almost. MMMM-NO, if you are like most of us here the mods have just begun, grab hold of your wallet and enjoy the ride. Congrats on the new truck.

Well got back from fishing and took some pics. Bad news already though....message center reads service shifter. Any idea what it means? I have the 8spd. Also radio when on fm sometimes cuts in and out. Other than that sat radio works great and truck ran great when headed to shore this morning and back for fishing. 185miles on her and still at 3/4 of a tank!!! Waaaayyyyy better than my old rig. Finally some decent mpgs!!! Lol. Have an apt tomorrow morning for trans message and radio. Hope it's nothing....but here's to hoping lol. Fml...also I will put pics up later once I go on computer and not through iPad

P.s....service shifter is not throwing cel for some reason. And truck runs and shifts fine.

im having a hell of a time getting them up. should have them up tonight. going to get them onto computer shortly. still having service shifter light come on. dealer said it wasnt an emergency and that it was probably just a programming issue since CEL wasnt on. so i am waiting until wednesday to get it looked at so they can put new running boards on then too
