Newbie! New to Dodge, Trucks & Forum.

Just picked up a 2003 4.7L crew cab with 108k on it. Clean no rust. Getting 14mpg combined. Should I be happy with that? Literature says 14 city 18 hwy. I'm sure this is posted elsewhere. Just wanted to say hi.

Welcome to the forum, :Hey:
This forum is full of great looking trucks; packed with great mod ideas and there are loads of knowledgeable and experienced people here.

Mileage is greatly affected by the driver, gears, average driving speed, number of stops, total idle time, etc. With 14mpg combined....for me that's great! :) If I could only train myself to keep the Hemi reined, I could probably attain that and better.....but.....:D
Being that you have the 4.7L, that is not an unreasonable mileage figure, but I also don't know all the variables either. However, that little engine has a lot of truck to move around, so is not known for it's exceptional mileage. :4-dontknow:

AND - We all like pix! Got any to share?

Enjoy the Z!

PS

Can anyone comment on the lifter noise when first started or point me to a thread since I'm being a lazy newbie for the day.


Thanks.
