New (for me) '05 4x4 Crew Cab Bighorn

Just picked up the truck last night. I'm a longtime Ford Truck guy, but the 5.7L Hemi lured me over. I can really tell the seat-of-the-pants difference from the 5.4 (still a great engine though). This truck has the AWD/4Hi/4Lo option. Seems to work great, but are there any known problems/issues with this drivetrain setup? The truck has 42K, but so far looks and drives as new.
The window sticker rated the milage at 13-17. I can live with that, but the overhead computer is so far showing me like 8-9 with moderate driving (I reset it after we bought it, so it wasn't the lead-foot test driving). I didn't buy it as an economy car, but yikes! Is this what to expect?
One more newbie question - I declined a 4-year bumper-to-bumper extended warranty ($2790). I still have the option to take it, but my previous experience has been that I never use it. I do get a 7/70 powertrain warranty that transferred over. Whaddyy'all think?

Thanks and glad to be here! I'll post pix ASAP.

I've not noticed any posts about drivetrain problems with your setup, and don't trust the overhead computer for accuracy, be sure to figure the mileage yourself with a calculator.

Other than that, be sure to stock up on your favorite beverage and be prepared to do a lot of reading in these forums and you'll pretty much find all the info your looking for.

Oh, and one more thing...

You sure won't be doing this with that AWD setup



But you'll get there faster for sure!

Enjoy!
