Got all the old adhesive off the driver side mirror and most on the passenger with 90% isopropyl alcohol and a bunch of elbow grease! Need to hit the passenger mirror with some Goo Gone to get some of the stubborn shit off.
Ordered up a pair of these from Amazon. $219 shipped. I really didn't want to spend $500+ on running boards. That seems to be the going rate for running boards of this type. These include the mounting brackets and are supposed to be good for 300 lbs. 5.5" wide extruded Aluminum and not plastic like the 2nd gen running boards. Most likely there's some fatal flaw due to the low price and I'll end up having to buy more expensive ones!! Worst case will be to return them and pony up the extra $$$ for something better.

I think the polished edge will compliment the trim strip that's already on the side skirts below the doors.
Ordered a set of OEM Mopar carpet floor mats today from Amazon. Cheaper than any of the online dealers and with free shipping! Truck came with WeatherTech rubber floor mats but not the original carpet ones. Tough to find online at the dealers. A lot are indicating they're discontinued already!
Trying to get the windshield replaced and scheduled with the dealer I bought it from. There's a crack that goes almost all the way across the windshield about 2 inches from the top. It's noted in the Sales paperwork they would replace it. Normally I wouldn't worry too much about it but it has the "Rain Sensing" option and needs to be Calibrated after windshield replacement. Would've shoved it off on my own Insurance except for the expense.
Thank you Tom. I get almost 23 mpg on the highway at 70 mph. It's AWD...no sure if it's Part time or Full time AWD. My other Durango....the 2008 with the 5.7L squeaks out 20 mpg under the same conditions. It has MDS also.
The power is what drew me to the 5.7L. Moves this 2.5 + ton SUV effortlessly and it has the older 6 speed transmission vs the 2014+ ZF 8 speed.
My 2nd gen 2004 SLT has the 4.7L and it doesn't have the ballz the 5.7L has. Although that 1st year 2nd gen only puts out 230 HP and is a carryover from the 1st gens. In 2005 they upped the power at least 70 HP. The 4.7L did consistently show 23 MPG @ 70 MPH or more on the EVIC. With 200K miles and a 5 speed transmission!
