    That's actually really good out of the 5.7. I've been managing 25-26 out of the 4th gen if I don't run the AC. Running the AC brings it down to 23 :annoyed:

    Yes, I was pleasantly surprised.

    That's not too bad either. How are you liking it overall? I've started to see a few around here.

    I've started to see them around and I'm not happy about it. They're not great looking trucks in my opinion, the front bumper and headlight geometry just doesn't vibe. Bulgy headlights look like they're being squeezed out of the fender/hood like an overdue pimple...

    That's incredible. Best I've ever gotten was 19, and that was at 55-60. At 70 I can feel the extra throttle needed to maintain.

    I honestly love mine despite what @BananaMan thinks ( :luvya: )

    If reliability holds out, the new 2.4 turbocharged 4 banger and 8 speed automatic works wonderfully together. Being the SR5 upgrade package the couple extra features it has has been nice. Heated steering wheel is actually really nice and the JBL sound system isn't too bad.

    Gotta keep those bitch mittens warm... I despise that feature in my wife's RAV4, makes my hands sweat in no time. I'll be curious to see how much abuse that 8 speed takes. Not that you are capable of abusing it :rolleyes:

    Camry has an 8 speed automatic and for the first 28,000 miles of its life was an Avis rental car. Pretty sure it's good :rofl:

    Yeah but that Camry doesn't have 4wd abuse and an extra 2k lbs to haul around. Throw 1k lbs in the bed and hammer on it for a couple thousand miles.

    I’m an Olympic level tire kicker, and my truck never misses a beat, but I’ve been eyeballing some low mile 5.7 equipped 1794 Tunnies. The mileage tho…

    saw an ecodiesel and actually thought about it for a hot minute… over 400 ft lb of. Torque and 30mpg???

    :wave:

    Some serious heat/humidity rolling in to our corner of the country. Probably already affecting some. Be safe all.

    Thankfully, I've got Interior work scheduled.
