I was also concerned about resale when gas gets over 4.00/gal. Last time that happened, I had my 05 Ram and I would have had to give it away to sell or trade. I realize that it is a psychological...

I totally understand the "truck" thing... I've had 2 Mazda B2000's, 1 Nissan King Cab, 1 Dakota V-6, 2 Dakota RT's, and 5 Rams. I'm a lot older than you, as you might have guessed:) I think I will...

yep, 2wd, reg cab. they sell a ton of them in the south because there is really no need for 4wd unless you live on a farm.

Well, you can buy that truck brand new for 19500.00 so the dealer really couldn't pay any more for it or they would never make any profit. They just price them by what they bring at the auction. Your...

Had to sell the 2012 Express... MPG

Due to the amount of driving I do now, I've had to trade the Express for something more practical and economical. Kinda sad but that is reality. The 2012 Civic coupe I bought is rated at 39 Hwy and...

I'm with you... it really depends on your body as much as anything. My 05 Ram (power)seats were fine but I find these to be too hard with no lumbar support. I had some foam added in the seat back for...

My 2012 didn't really wake up until about 5000 miles. I don't know if that is something programmed in or just break in but it is definitely peppier and gets better mileage than when it was brand new....

Get the 3:92, It just feels so much better driving around town. You won't notice it on the Hwy, though. I think the mileage is rated the same for both axles. My 05 had the 3:92 and this 12 has the...

The 5k was for the Ford SXT with the V6. Not really comparable, but I would have gotten it for the fuel mileage if the price difference wasn't so great. You are right about the spread being closer...

Tough to trade these trucks when they have over 6000.00 in rebates/incentives on them. Most dealers I've talked to don't really want the truck and the offers are in the 16-17,000 range on mine.

I think we've pretty much established that the transmission itself is not the problem- it is the software that controls when it shifts, downshifts and when the mds kicks in. Like I've said in several...
