Thread: Greetings from North-by-God-Carolina!

    Default Greetings from North-by-God-Carolina!

    I'm Paul. I recently acquired a '99 R/T Extra-Cab after my trusty lil '04 4.7 was destroyed in a collision. That lil sonofagun gave its life for me, so I reciprocated by finding one of its older sisters to replace it. Purchased in Clifton NC with 128k on the clock for $4400; so far after new tires, brakes, exhaust (Delta50, bay-bee), tune-up, oil-change, 4 new speakers (original head-unit!), a headliner, & misc. I'm sure I'm forgetting, total cost involved is WELL under 6k. Oddly, the differential had been professionally rebuilt about a month prior. So-
    I've been driving it now long enough to know it'll never make mpg like the 4.7 did.... BUT. It's been getting 14+mpg in town, over 17 on the highway (with 3:92's!), and it's happy as a peeg in poop on REGULAR GAS.
    And it runs like a new truck. I've owned a few 318's in my day, but this 360 really IS a different animal. What a happy lil motor! <3

    Welcome from Detroit!
    I've spent most of my money on women, booze, and my truck. The rest of the money was wasted!

    Smartphones are a menace to society and are creating a zombie apocalypse!

    If you don't like me on the phone get off the road!

    Welcome to the site! They really are good looking, fun to drive trucks. Using an SCT tuner can get it running even better and in stock/unmodified condition. You should be able to pick up a couple mpg on the highway.
