Just picked this up a little over a week ago. I purchased it to haul bikes and be a weekend warrior support vehicle for the family, but I'll be damned if I don't want to drive it every day!

Over the first 500 miles I've averaged 18.0mpg. The truck is an XLT 4x4 with sport pkg., 3.5 ecoboost, 10 speed auto, max tow pkg. (3270lb payload, 13,200lb towing), 36 gallon tank, trailer back-up assist, sliding rear window, electronic locking rear diff., Sync3/AppleCarplay, FordPass, etc. So much truck for the money!!

Lead Foot. Apparently it's highly sought after on the Raptors and it's what made me fall in love with the truck. Everyone I've talked to has complemented the color as well.

New family adventure vehicle

Just picked up my new truck and I couldn't be more excited. 2018 Ram 2500 Big Horn with the Cummins and the Off Road package. It will pull trailer (27ft. travel trailer) and adventure duty and replaces my 2014 Ram 1500. I've already made some changes and will start a build thread soon!

Congrats on the truck.FWIW,in case you haven't read it,The Cummins does not need a break in,but there is a part in the manual that talks about putting a load on the engine in the first 6K miles for "fit and finish." I was not able to follow that,I just got a mileage increase at 22K.I may have got that MPG increase earlier if I had been able to follow the fit and finish recommendation.

Here's my rig I've had this Suburban for a few years now and it has been a slow metaphosis from a simple rusty diesel 4x4 to its current state, although there still the rust to remove. It began with switching out the auto to manual with a NV 4500 coupled with NP205. 4" ORD lift with 15 x 35 Coopers. Dual 3" exhaust system. ARB rear diff locker. Numerous other tweaks like a better lift pump. There's still the interior to finish along with the body work and bar work. But I'm in Australia caring for mother and so the Burbon is in storage till I decide what I should do. Possible ship it to Australia.

These trucks take me back to my childhood, we always called that era of Suburban the "Big Body Burb" and they were awesome!

Little lady with her new ride and our new Overlanding platform.


Looks like Ram's are becoming more and more prevalent as a overlanding rig, and in Tex68w picture looks like they come stock with a winch friendly bumper? Clearly that aftermarket bumper in Manchilds photo looks good and seems to match well to the rig.
