    Nice. Was it much more expensive than ordering online? I was looking for one for my truck and they are around 80 bucks plus shipping. And of course duties... Didn't realize anyone local sold them. Ill have to give them a call.

    Likely getting a lower end new ram with the 3.6 and a small car. Just driving this truck too much to justify the extra gas and wear and tear when its jus a daily commute. Love the truck though so it will be hard

    Research told me that there was little to no advantage in fuel savings with the 3.7/4 cyl over the 4.0/V6. Especially if you load up the truck with mods and weight.

    My daily commute is 8.4 km one way. I fueled up on Monday, and my gauge needle barely moved by Friday evening (V6 4.0).

    I'm keeping mine! :D

    As for your proposed purchase of the new RAM, did you research fuel savings between the 3.6 and the 5.7 ? There appears to be only a 2 mpg difference, but if you take into consideration that it's a big truck, you'd probably be better off with the larger/more powerful 5.7. It works less under load and tow (hills/loads/acceleration), and hence, overall fuel consumption is much less in the long run.

    I might not go brand new because I dont want to drive it as much, thats why Im also considering keeping the Tacoma, but bringing it to stock. I also believe the 3.6 is a lot better then the 5.7 for fuel mileage. Or at least I hope because the 5.7 is a joke no matter what people say. I just dont like how taxing it is when I try towing my camper and four wheeler, and I love taking both going camping!
