How is the range? I know you can't get the 36 gallon tank with this or the diesel. I'm spoiled with my 36's in my '19 3.5 (600+ )& '21 2.7 (700+)

Also what kind of mpg's did you see?


A guy I ran into has one and said the same about the transfer of power. My 18 has that 1-3, 3-5 shift unless I smash the pedal or use sport mode. I’m used to it now. The 10 speed is a love/hate thing.


I noticed with both my '19 and '21 the trans were a little jerky at first but smoothed out after a while. So either they adapt to your driving or I just don't notice any issues any more. I think the 10r80 is a big improvement over the 6r80 in my '14 and '16. Though once in a while it will get confused and hunt for a gear but it is rare.


I’m curious if that think could run my AC? I don’t think 8.5 is enough.

Yes it would run your A/C. I wonder what the fuel burn rate is at half load.

IIRK, 500 miles. It averaged around 21 MPG I think. I talk about it in one of the vids.

Yeah, they do learn and smooth out after a while. It still has a stupid attack now and then.

Sorry hard to watch videos at work when I should be working. I did watch the drag video at Darlington though.

nice truck overall but I agree on not being ready to jump on the power boost wagon just yet.

WTF were they thinking with that two tone interior though

There is nothing in my life where that truck would be applicable or an improvement on what I already have.
It is a HARD No for me.

A guy can get over 600 miles per tank. I had mine up to 23mpg average before swapping the shitty 4-ply tires for some 10-ply BFG. I'm down to 20.6 now.
