Now I'm curious what your getting for gas mileage? I'm waiting on the 2014 Tradesmam 1500 diesel and I'm also trying to find out what the 2013 Ram 1500 V6 Pentastar gas engine is getting MPG ?

Think I might pull the trigger on a Detroit Tru trac diff, and either 4:10 or 4.56 rear gears. Looking for opinions on the gears.

I do a TON of highway driving (108 miles a day, 5 days a week)

Just purchased some Centramatics for the truck. I will install and provide a review.

I am able to use the 300-355 kit as I have wheel spacers. Without wheel spacers they will not clear the brakes.

Ok, I will have to admit that the Centramatic wheel balancers are amazing... The truck rides smoother than it did brand new, with the stock tires.

I have also worked out all the bugs on the power window conversion, and the keyless entry. They both are working flawlessly now.

I also detailed the exterior this weekend, and used the meguires ultimate synthetic wax. I really like this wax, and would reccomend it to others as well.

you can see the centramatic balancers in the pictures. They will not fit unless you have wheel spacers, but they really did make a huge differences.
