2009 Dodge Ram 1500 QC, purchased in February 2009
86,000+ miles right now & about to leave on a 7,000 mile trip next week

original brake pads look good, some sign of ridges on rear rotors
one exhaust manifold had cracked, replaced under warranty
recall on 2 intake manifold bolts
needed a few Flashes for updating software
rubber along roof line was lifting, needed some adhesive, no charge
didn't like Goodyear Wrangler tires, not gripping the road as i thought they should, replaced with Michelin LTs
Shock Absorbers have reached that point, where they need replacing

still getting 17.4 MPG highway, sign down, flags & lights removed, with all my tools & equipment, the truck is 1,000 pounds heavier then stock

picture with sign down


work mode, i get 15.7 MPG


what is in my bed, usually hidden by soft tonneau cover
