Ok, the dealer said they were talking with Chrysler and they were told it's exhaust. Drone. My main problem was it wasn't constant, woom woom woom, Tuesday they drove another truck to my house srw and said try it. I really like this one but it doesn't have a sun roof and I think for the 3 days a year I can use it , I'm going to not worry about it. Thanks again for your input everyone.

Wow, I fueled up yesterday and this we drove from Phoenix East Valley to the West valley and lie-o-meter was reading over 24 MPG. 60-70 MPH. At 38k maybe it is getting broken in. Chris

I do not think so, I was however using the go pedal vs the cruise control most of the way do to the traffic. Will be interesting to see the mileage tomorrow go back home.

I was messing with you. I do know these trucks with 3.42's get great mileage!

Well we drove around Surprise shopping for 1-2 hours and mileage on EVIC dropped to 21 MPG. On the way home today it went back up to 22.4 or so. So, if I fueled now it should be at least 21 MPG hand calculated. Again speed was 65 MPH on CC.
