And I'm all grins. I can't believe the power this thing has. I had a load of about 18,000 pounds behind me.

Started up 7% grade (Im certain it's a lot damn steeper than that) about 7 miles long. Dropped it into 4th gear at 45 mph. Never dropped not a single mph and had plenty of pedal. This thing hauls and doesn't think twice.

Coming back down the same mountain the exhaust brake slowed me down from 45 to 41 mph before I had to cut it off. I didn't use my service brakes once down the mountain. That's pretty dang impressive with that kind of weight.

My mpg averaged out to 10.8 mpg.

I love this truck!!! No doubt in my mind I made the right choice when I bought it.

Sounds dang good and 10.8 sounds impressive at 18,000 lbs. if i had the money i'd go for a 6.7 but i don't so i'm going for a 12v.
