Re: Trade In - 14 JCG 6-Cyl for Diesel?

Re: Trade In - 14 JCG 6-Cyl for Diesel?

Re: Trade In - 14 JCG 6-Cyl for Diesel?

Picked up the truck in the DC Metro group buy. I think it was 7% below invoice. Picked it up on 2/13, so I've had it almost a year now. As long as the trade is -decent- I think it would be doable....

Also some new pics of the Mckesh mirrors.. They rock. A little noise on the highway after 55mph, then quiets down around 62-65ish.

Sorry I missed this before.. I'm getting about 10-12mpg avg when towing on the highway at 65-70mph.

Taking a longer trip soon, so I'll follow up with my experience shortly.
