2014 is what I meant. I am a senior but not a neanderthal.
Absolutely love mine, but I think without the GDE tune, my opinion would be less glowing. I did not like the throttle lag issue at all. GDE tune really makes this truck shine but that aside, there are a lot of other things I like about it.
My average mileage is based on an 84 mile commute to work. Half at 73mph and half at 77mph. 4x4 with 3.92's. The wife's Durango doesn't even average over 20mpg. Pretty good for a 6000lb truck! Bought the 125k warranty just so I could keep this truck longer.....that's how much I like it.
