    Traded a Hemi Ram for my Taco. People said I was crazy and wouldn't save enough gas to make a difference. Well I'm averaging 5 mpg better, doesn't sound like a lot but I would be spending about $85-$90 a tank and now spending $50-$55 a tank and going the same distance. Doing the math that's about $100-$120 a month difference, not bad I say, and my Ram wasn't even a 4x4. :cool:

    I hate when people who drive trucks complain about gas. You want good gas mileage? Get a fucking car.
