Oh, and it can tow too, although, I will admit, the Tundra had more low end, (and better gears, I got 3.21's in the new truck, 4:30's in my Tundra), and I don't know if it's because I have air ride, or just don't have the trailer set up right, but I also will admit my tundra with 5100's leveled and Load E BFG's seemed a little bit more stable when towing. Nothing really to write home about, and certainly not unsafe or anything like that by any means, just noting the differences.

Oh, and I moved to SW Florida two weeks ago, from Central CT, and on the trip down, with my 800lb bike in the back, full rear seat of luggage inside, and myself and my father who both total around 550lbs, the truck did 19mpg running between 70 and 75, and 18mpg when getting over 80mph (my dad drives like he has places to be, lol)

If you and your father total 550lbs he probably has to get some place with food or insulin.

David Gore at Midstate Chrysler (email: dgore AT midstatechryslerdodgejeep.motosnap.com) beat every online warranty price I could find for my 2500 Cummins Mopar warranty.

Also, if you purchase the extended warranty after 12K/12 months, the price goes up a considerable amount.

its the 3.21, I test drove one of those and order the 3.92, drastic difference.

3.92 X 4.71 first gear in the ZF =

the mid grade fuel needed cuts into he MPG gain of the tundra now that the fuel increments are no longer .10 like they used to be per grade.

I'm 6'4" and 240, my dad is 6'8" and just told me he's only 266, so I was off by a few, but still, that's 506 together.

And yeah, we can eat for sure. I used to do a pound of buttered pasta to myself as an appetizer back in the day when visiting my Italian grandparents. And that's not a joke. Pasta is served before the main course (it's really like 3rd in line). One pound to myself because I didn't like the sauce. Those were the days

I don't tow as often as I used to, I specifically went with the 3.21 for the mileage. Although from what I hear of this new gen Ram, it doesn't make a difference, the guys with the 3.92's are still getting what I'm getting. Oh well, still pulls just fine. I did drive both as well, back to back in fact, and the difference wasn't enough for me to necessarily need either one over the other. Getting back in the Tundra after the 3.92 (drove that one second), I could still tell the Hemi is a but less sophisticated on the bottom end.

That Toyota 5.7 is a ****ing workhorse.
