for a full size truck I don't think it's tooo bad (although before this I had a Camaro SS) 21highway/14city is about what I average. I drive conservatively though because otherwise it's horrible

V8/4.7 if I had gotten the hemi gas mileage would be much worse, I think I'd tend to have a heavy right foot

that's an awesome deal on 22's !!
what brand are they?

I think the brake problem was fixed on the 04s, so hopefully yours will be ok.
the calipers were not fully releasing which severely heats the rotors and leads to warping. I think. MoparBoyyyy probably knows.

I am surprised you get that good of gas milage. I just traded my black quad cab in for a new vehicle. Mine was an 03. I got about 11mpg.

the key is driving conservatively... I do about 65-70ish on the highway when I'm getting that but it takes me a little bit to get up that fast


The rims are Eagle 025's 22x9.5

hahahahaaaa I have a dodge too. those suckers guzzle more and more gas as they age. right now I'm up to $45 to fill the tank and our gas is only about $2.10 here in tx. the only reason I will never get rid of my truck is because I couldn't sell it for free. It will forever be my work truck.
