Silo's Blog

I decided to start a Blog that will give me a place to review and post different products I try out or purchase or just general thoughts. I will do my best to organize them as I post. I will try to add links directly to outside sources in case you would like to check out more details. If you would like me to write a blog about your product? Feel free to check out the (Product Review Request Page). These are my own opinions and reviews on products, places, services and anything else I see fit. By viewing this page you agree to the terms and conditions link at the bottom of the page.

5/11/2016 - Review - Bought truck new from Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge City of McKinney in McKinney,Texas

2016 Ram 1500 Lone Star Crew Cab EcoDiesel 4X4 at the dealer

6/8/2016 - Review - I added a Tri-Fold Tonneau Bed Cover ($179.00) that I ordered on Even with a strong rain it seems to be keeping the bed dry. Granted a pressure car wash did get water inside the bed.

I will add picture descriptions as soon as I add some pictures.

6/16/2016 - Review - Currently 7000 miles and averaging 22.9 mpg with mix city and highway miles. This truck does take the Diesel Emission Fluid (DEF) and it seem to drink through it pretty quick for the first few tanks of fuel, but at 7000 miles it seems to have slowed down on how much it uses.

I will add picture descriptions as soon as I add some pictures.
