Lots of luck with the new Ram.

Odors? Cloth seats you can get a good detailing place to do the carpets, headliner, and seats and thay should be able to get smell out. Ask them if they will guarantee the smell removal, not a smell cover up.

As far as mods, I feel that the best mod for improved MPGs would be a Non Restrictive exhaust/muffler. A good muffler that is not meant for noise as much as lowering backpressure is good.

Cold Air intakes in my opinion do not really improve mileage more than 1 mpg as a design. They will increase noise levels in the cab though.

Chips/programmers? They are really meant to improve performance rather than MPGS.

These are just my opinions.

If there is a way to raise MPGS on a 4.7, I would love to hear them. I do not want noise, drone, etc. You can message me rather than tie up this thread with non topic stuff, like 1/2 of mine was. Sorry.

Again good luck
