Hello: I recently purchased a 2008 1500 Ram Laramie with a Hemi and 16K miles on it. Traded a 2002 F150 with a 5.4 Triton. Use the Ram to pull my boat and trailer that weighs about 6500 lbs. Just finished a 1600 mile trip into Canada and got 12 mpg. Made the same trip a year ago with the Ford and got 9.5 mpg. I had hoped for a little better mileage, but better than 30% - wow!. And it never felt overworked. The Ford was working hard most of the time.

Glad I got it!

Welcome!

glad to hear you made the switch. If you want to improve those numbers, a CAI and exhaust do help some. A chip too if you're willing to go that route will free up some of the HEMIs true potential. Glad to hear you're running a REAL truck and make it up north to our great country.
