I didnt realize there was a difference in the CC then a regular truck. I had some running around to do today here in corpus and on the island so I tested it against the winds. The winds today are between 20 and 30 mph. I had a chance to drive directly into it and had no problems hitting 80mph and could have easily done more. As far as pulling and mpg I have seen as low as 6.8mpg before but was over weight with about 28 to 30g behind the truck. Usually Im at about 9 or 11mpg with my 40ft g/n within weight limits. I have 3.73 gears with the new tune of 400hp/800tq.
I too came from cummins and I have the opposite feeling then you do. Although my cummins got the job done just fine, my ford pulls better. My dodge was an 08 mega cab dually with 3.73 and smarty with deletes. smarty stayed on tow tune. If you get a chance drive the regular truck with 3.73 gears and see how that compares to your CC. Im curious myself so if you do post up your results.
