I idle most of the day when it's cold so it chews fuel but so does everything else on site.
My favourite thing about the truck is the torque everywhere and the sound even though it's muted.
What I don't like is doesn't have the legroom of my 2012 1500 and there's some sort of anomoly that causes a "clunk" from the right from wheel under certain circumstances. Seems to happen when it's very cold outside. Nothing seems off with the truck but it reminds me of a bad front stabilizer from other trucks I've had. I don't know.
Otherwise, this 6.4 is pretty much begging for aftermarket mods despite how well it runs. If you drive one you can tell where it's being strangled. You don't have to be a gearhead to figure out that it has a lot more power available then what's it giving you.
I have the same clunk in the right front corner as well. Mine only has 600km on it so far. It has been very cold as of late and it is most noticeable on sharp bumps while slightly turning. Hopefully someone figures out where it is coming from.
