    In what month did they first start producing the 5th gens?

    Tire Dressing frustration

    I use Wesley's bleach white for cleaning and I use Black Magic Tire Wet in the spray can. I find the spray is the easiest to get along the bottom where the tire hits the concrete .

    Poor fuel mileage highway

    I totally agree, but with 20k miles, I am averaging 10.7 in the city. seems a bit low even for city. This is not towing anything either. 3.21 axle and 18" stock tire. 87 non-ethanol gas.

    Anyone have an oem truck ?

    Is the 3.21 gear sufficient?

    1500 temps and towing issue and questions

    While towing my boat (~7000lb) I have no problem with acceleration in steep grades, just be sure to turn on the tow/haul mode so the truck stays in the lower gears longer. Towing will push the engine and run temp hotter, but 220 should be within normal range. As long as the fan is running when...

    weird thing happened

    Yes, I have had this happen 3 times in 17 months of ownership. I think it has to do with the tire pressure monitor, as this is the screen that displays when the horn honks and the hazards flash. Not 100% on this though.
