Great to see that the truck was nearly as promised by RAM. Can't wait to hear more from you as you break her in.

Yes and I did verify the axle sticker. The 25 mile drive was pretty much all flat and I was using the cruise. I'll keep everyone posted on the mileage after my first tank. All of my daily driving is in town.

I got the Line-X premium sprayed last Friday. It looks great so far (very shiny).

Driving back and forth to work I'm getting about 16.5 so far (3.92 gears). I live in a hilly area too. My old QC 4.7l got about 15 on the same commute. I'm pleased, considering my new CC with 6'4" bed is about 1000 lbs heavier. I've got about 430 miles on it, so we'll see if the mileage goes up.

For reference, I have the Lone Star not Limited.

nice rig,

looks really close to my loaded sport inside minus the wood steering wheel and couple other things as far as ethcing etc.

The floor mats wouldn't cut it for Chicago winters, though. I added husky weatherbeaters which really line the floor and go up the sides.

what is the ring around the center area where the cupholders made of? it is chrome? just asking as I have a little blinded by the bling going on and wondering if one of the other trucks has another material I could order.

good luck!!

IMO The quality of leather is much better than that used in the Sport. I am not far from you in Peoria, IL, but I work in an office and they do a good job keeping parking lot and side walks clean (big on employee safety), but those weather techs are definitely nice.

The ring is definitely chrome but I haven't had any problems with it yet. I did see that many guys have taken theirs off and painted it black.

Just an FYI for those like me, who are interested in the Limited but not the air suspension. My previous understanding was you could not go the Limited route without air supsension. A dealer close to me has two Limiteds now on the lot and they do not have air suspension, verified physically by sales person and also on build sheet. This is great news for me, now I just need to decide, white or black (don't care for the silver or red.) I wish they were offering the sweet grey color from the auto show but what can you do. Any rumors that more colors will become available later in the year?

Yes I did get confirmation that at least for the 2014MY year that you can delete the Air Suspension. It is talked about over in the 2014 forum.
Here is the link: http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=147711

Interesting to see they have 2013 without Air Suspension as you could not delete or add it to the 2013MY build, and other guys on here who ordered 2013's have Air listed on their build sheets. I wonder if they RAM shipped out dealer orders for 2013 without Air as it was in short supply?

For 2014's I've heard rumors of all the Limited Colors remaining the same except for the addition of Granite Crystal Metallic. Its a lot darker than the Mineral Gray Metallic. You can do a google search on the color and see it on other Dodge cars like the Challenger.

Also True Blue is still available on the Limited even though the RAM website does not depict it and if you do a nation wide search you will find that a few 2013's were built with True Blue.
