Default First month with the new dually!

Already put a thousand miles on the truck and it's been great so far. Averaging close to 16 mpg so that's not bad for a big truck. A few camping trips planned in the new few months so we'll see how she does pulling the trailer.

Had these installed by the dealer this morning. Not cheap but exactly what I wanted!

Close to 1,500 miles so far and this truck impresses me more everytime I drive it...still averaging 16mpg since I bought it and can't believe how fast this over 8K pound truck can move!
