Default Story of our new truck

First - just a big thank you to all those who post on this forum, their good news stories and their bad news. We have been looking at a new truck and been following along on this forum since last November. It really helped in us making a final decison on the model and the options we went with.
On March 12 (day after availability) we ordered the new 6' 4" CrewCab, Laramie, 8 speed transmission, monotone Metalic Gray, Back up camera, Nav system, 17" tires, 3.92 rear end, leather bucket seats, 32 gal fuel tank. The dealer called and said it was built on April 28 and in transit. We took delivery May 18. Truck in great shape and with a full fuel tank.
Immediately took it and got new tires (TOYO Open Country 10 ply). Also Linex spray in liner, WeatherTech matts, front seat covers, side tool boxes, headache rack, LED Rigid 20" driving lights. Put on Total Load Control airbags. Our truck is used as a truck - hunting, camping, lots of bush time. We use but do not abuse.
In just over two weeks have put on 2700 kms. Bunch of highway miles because of meetings. That trip averaged almost 21 mpg at 115 km/hr cruise.
Ride is excellent - even with a bit of a load with quad in back. Payload on sticker is 1110 lbs.
8 speed transmission is awesome. The dial selector for P, N, R, D is easy to get used to. The gear up/down selector is on steering wheel and works great.
No sloshing sounds from fuel tank (some had reported this on various threads).
No issues with NAV, climate controls, radios etc.
Upgrades on 2013 interior are awesome.
Chked sticker on rear end and it is right.
Lifetime oil changes ($600 Cdn).
2 Year Extended warranty.
Great dealer and sales fellow to work with.

All in all a great truck!! would recommend it to anyone.

That's excellent! Life time oil changes for $600? I've never heard of that. Who offers that? I see you're in Alberta and I'm in Ontario, so it might not be available here. It's an excellent deal for a new vehicle!

Great to hear about your new truck and that it has met your expectations. When you consider that over a 1000 trucks are built per day, 6 days per week, those with problems are really in the minority. Of course when that minority is your truck you want the issue resolved.

Looking forward to seeing pictures!
