Default First 1000 miles on 2011 crew cab
I picked up the truck from the dealer and put 75% of the first miles in 4wd pulling a trailer thru NY and Pa. in whiteout conditions
Can't say enough about the truck, I had concerns if the crew cab would look ok but I have to say it looks better than the supercab..
the truck drives more like Vette than a truck...

Alot of guys ask about pricing, you should be able to get 10% off of sticker anywhere if you order one anything less tell them to stick it.

Also the nav and Sony stereo kick ass and are worth the money.....

I have to agree with you Bogger, I have only had my SCREW for a few days now, and I can't find anything to complain about when it comes to this truck. The power, handling, the ride all superb.

Hey bogger, glad to hear you're happy. I saw my first SCrew in person on Friday night, and I was surprised by how much more I liked it in person than I had in photos I'd seen before. I was concerned it would just look too long, and in person it definitely doesn't.

I did find one thing to whin about.
Maybe you guys found a way around this, You can not load music from your Ipod into the stereo memory, you can only copy CD's in to it?

The only "fix" is to run an external hard drive from the second USB on the back of the factory radio. I'm going to do this since I hardly own any CD's.

Are you saying there is a cord from the dash mounted USB plug running to the radio unit that you unplug and I would attach my Ipod USB cord direct to the radio unit?
Iam confused why that cord if there is one? would have anything to do with keeping the unit from copying from a hard drive.??

Let me know if it works for you, the dealer was clueless on it...
Thanks.....

There is no way to get anything other than CD's to record to the jukebox. The "fix" is that people have been installing a second hard drive for music storage. Besides the USB on the dash, there is a second one located somewhere on the back of the radio. Do a search for "hard drive" or "USB 2" and you should find a couple threads on it.

Confirmed - CD's are the only way to record to the hard drive.
