Don't feel bad, I think they give you even more runaround and bs when you work for them. The will try a "little" harder to make a deal with a stranger then someone they think has to buy from them.
Good luck with the search!!

But hey he had a similar unit for 10, 000 dollars more! And they will even give me a thousand less for mine to trade!

i cant believe you passed on a deal like that. especially after driving an hour i bought my 08 in 10 with less than 3000 miles on it. didnt have a 5th wheel/gooseneck set up in it nor did it look like the reciever had ever had a hitch installed. was told it was bought by some guy who traded every 2 yrs, and he traded for the same truck 2 model yrs newer.

as far the fass fuel system, does that replace the stock filter with something (block off plate)to mount in stock location? that stock filter is in a pita location, at least for me anyway. im not any where NEAR as flexible and limber as i usta be
So true about the fuel tank!! Our tank is only 16 gallons!!!! We also have an 08. Pulls awesome but we have to stop about every 150-175 miles for diesel. We have always wondered who did not think the fuel system through? That big of a truck is going to be towing something so need a bigger fuel.

If you were a bit closer I'd put you in touch with my dealer. They have an awesome reputation for going out of their way to make good deals. They aren't afraid of getting the vehicle you want from where ever they can find it. Or if they have what someone wants, shipping it to their door. They helped me to order my '11 from the factory and helped keep tabs on where it was at and then took video of it as it came off the hauler for me.

Good luck! Your patience will be rewarded!

After reading your post I went and dug out our papers it does say 26. My husband is confused! I just enlighten him. He always fills at 1/4 tank left. The towing is a problem,unless you like stopping often.
