Picked it up this afternoon and not a whole lot different than my 12. Driving it home I realized how tight the 12 still is. It had two alignments and new brakes at 100,000 miles. Look Brian, this one has two compasses!

The mileage is much better on the 17. Through the first 1000 miles I'm seeing 17 to 19 mpg combined. Pulling my trailer with the Jeep in it for 200 miles mostly highway, it only dropped down to 12.7 mpg.
The other truck was around 15 combined and around 10 hauling the Jeep.

We run nothing but white Rams (diesels and gas) and the seat wearing out thing happens to us too. Picked up a nice 1500 4x4 5.7 yesterday for my mechanic.
