    Just wanted to see if/how you like the truck and what you were getting roughly for fuel economy? Considering buying one with 3:73 gears. Thanks fellas.

    I have a '12 chevy 1 ton dmax dump 4wd. I like it except for the cloth seats, shoulda got vinyl. They really beefed the new ones up, thhe front end handles a 1000 pound plow like its not there. Fuel economy wise I average about 10mpg, but im always hauling something or towing 13k, so its acceptable. A pickup will do better, my truck without me or anything in it weighs 10k.

    Some of the " new" ones have all the dpf emissions crap so they only get ten mpg.
