    I like it a lot! It has tons of power, and the front end/ frame is really beefed up. The front end is rated for I think 6k lbs.
    Doesn't barely sqaut when I raise my plow.
    I'm only getting 12.3 mpg average. That's pulling my 24' enclosed lawn trailer. Bout 10k total.

    City and highway combined - I live in a small rural area, so not a lot of pure city driving. Probably 14-15.? Still only have 9k miles. It will improve a little with time. The emmisions stuff if the real reason the mpg is lower then the older Diesel's.
    I may delete all of it when I hit 36k miles, out of warranty.
