Patrick, When you Haul Tile, sometimes you want to be able to slide it easily(rather than have to climb up into the box to drag out that 2nd row;)

It has a Very High Quality Liner in it now and I use pieces of Carpet Pad to insure non slip on these types of liners. when I want something to slide easily, I just roll up the pad.

Works great and the carpet guys give me all the free chunks of pad I want :)

Sure Like that HEMI :thumb:

Hemi gets 4 mossies from me:moose::moose::moose::moose:

Actually Don, this truck gets better mileage than my Chevy 3/4 ton did.

Chevy got me 13 mpg loaded or empty, city highway mix. towing it dropped .5 mpg

This one is getting me ( in 2 tankfuls) 16.4 city/highway mix with the airco ON and I am not being shy with the accelerator.

thats what about a 25% improvement in fuel economy?

22,000 miles per year Div by 13 mpg = 1,692.3 gallons yearly@ 3.00 =$5,076.90

the same divide by 16.4 =1341.4 gallons yearly @ 3.00 =$ 4,024.20

1050.00 in fuel savings per year !! ( or 87.50 per month)

Multiply that by 6 years = 6,300.00 in fuel savings.

Now, keep in mind thats running airco................which is only 2-3 months up here in this country so it may actually be better than this as a yearly average.

 

The best part is................. + 100 HORSEPOWER with that better mileage :D
