I think that for most of us here, changing to a different vehicle is not the first step, or even the third. I see it as one of the more expensive "mods".
Yeah, I'm stuck with it for now. I don't need a truck everyday, (except maybe for 4 wheel drive in winter ).

It's all good. I know a truck isn't the best for high MPG, but I think it will be fun to see just how much I can squeeze out of it!
