I just turned the 10,000 mile mark on mine....and it changed! It's definitely a lot peppier on the highway. Yesterday I drove a 4 hour highway trip on a very busy 2 lane highway, so used WOT more than once to pass. 3 times while passing a single car, I went from 50mph to speed limiter (105mph) during the pass. It ran so smooth and felt so firm on the road, I had no idea I had accelerated that high. Have to now watch carefully....the speed increase is sooner than anticipated, and the sensation of high speed is not there. I am actually glad the speed limiter is there....even more glad of my purchase decision.

I have something to look forward to then! I do agree that even now too that it is the smoothest truck I have ever road in at highway speeds!

I love MDS. Have to say that yesterday I was filling up at a pump and some idiot with a older V6 Ford Ranger 4x4 came up to me trying to be smarta$$. "Yo man! That's gotta hurt in that sled behemoth!" I responded "No, not really, just got 21 out of it driving back and forth to work.(100 mile round trip 95% freeway)" You know he said some stupid stuff back but long story short, started it up and had him look through the window at my EVIC for fuel Mileage. He actually took his hat off and said his next truck will be a Ram! LMAO
