Are you looking for something specific or just in general?

For A Grand you can make the 05 have plenty of power, and not hurt it.
AFE stage II intake, Budget 4" turbo back exhaust, and SCT Xcal2.

Thats very true and a road that I would take if that is your only complaint. You can get a lot of power out of the 6.0s. Yes the 6.0s get better fuel mileage than the 6.4. When I first got mine I was only getting 11mpg but with 7,000 miles on it, its up to 15mpg in the city and about 20mpg in the highway.

I love my 2008 supercab FX4 but agree about the fuel mileage. 12.9 mpg at 2,500 miles

Thumbs down

i dont know if it would be a good idea to buy one with the fuel mileage, we haul travel trailers for a living, we are also looking at a new chevy diesel, we have a 06 dodge, but to many problems with that one!

I have also noticed that if I'm light on the pedal then I get great mileage, but as soon as I Hammer Down and get those turbos to put out 40psi, then its buh bye mileage, haha
