Well he said 75mph but the interstate he runs to work on has an 80 mph speed limit and Montana will let you go 5 over all day without a second glance. I bet when it's clear and daylight he is doing at least 75. I also notice I don't see the truck except on the bad weather days pretty much, think cold air, rain or snow, and diesel #2 in the tank. He has a big deer catcher, welded bumper on the front as well after his stock setup caught a deer. I think he feels a little safer with his 120 mile (round trip) commute in the Ram then in his Grand Cherokee, and I don't think he gets much better mpg with the Jeep. He is close to retirement so moved way out in anticipation of only having to do it for a year or so.
