Default new ram owner- is 21MPG normal?

I've read lots of post about people getting 21 mpg with tunes, exhaust, and CAI ... however, my truck is a stock 5.7 big horn crew cab.. it easily maintained a 21 mpg at 75 on a recent trip.. with a 20.5 avg for the trip city and all.. I was shocked, my last f150 barely got 15 on the interstate.. avg 11 or so and my other f150 close to 17...with 13 avg and I see some people here with similar numbers as a normal with their hemis... im just curious as to what you guys are getting with your trucks and is it stock.. can these trucks make better mpg? if I do a cai and exhaust am I going to be putting the hybrids to shame?! ( kidding-- would be nice though! )
