Default 2013 Sport 4x4 - after 3 weeks

3 weeks after trading my 09 SLT quad cab 4x4 hemi (5 spd) for 13 quad cab 4x4 Hemi 8 spd. Loving every minute of driving it. The ultimate test will be when I pick up my new boat in a couple of weeks since I only have the 3.21 gear ratio. The boat with trailer will be 5k 5.5k lbs.
I already got about 800 miles on it and averaging aroung 17.5 to 18 mpg, I did drive a lot of highway lately.

Here's some photos.

Love the truck! That charcoal color would have been my #2 ....

and 05cr -- the knob becomes normal within a week or two.

Keep turning it reverse of what I whant, I think if it was D N R P instead of P R N D it would feel more naturel. When in reverse I keep putting in park instead of drive.

Nice truck! I love your wheels...didn't even see that style on the lot. I would have insisted on them. What nerf bars are those?

Great looking ride.
Well hopefully the 8spd helps. I had 3.21's on the used 09 big horn I bought. They lasted a week before it went in for 3.92's. I feel bad getting 3.55's with the 6spd in my 13 I started hating them the 1st time I picked up my little trailer. wish I had gotten 3.92's. Would have liked to try an 8 spd but I wish it could have been ordered with the regular shifter and not just the know,
I never had to use tow/haul on my 09 and it got almost 5 more mpg while towing.
