Noob to Rams.. reporting for Duty

Hi guys,
I joined another forum for Dodges and then found this one. I am hoping this one is more "technical" in nature if thats possible. I have been driving Jeeps since i was 16 and i know way too much detailed info about them. I was originally looking for a Dak R/T but then stumbled across a 4x4 Ram in my area at a decent price. So now i have payments for the first time in my life and a truck i cant stop staring at in the driveway. I went ahead and put the AEM intake kit on it which woke it up throttle response wise.
I basically want to absorb as much technical info about the truck as i can so i know what to do for its future. I know the C-Clips in my LSD are an issue so i am soon going to put an Auburn LSD in whether it needs it or not.
My next concern is mileage.. with a granny foot im only getting 12mpg. I know this truck is capable of better at only 40k miles. Hopefully i can find some tricks to help me out there.

Thats about all for now..
Thanks for having me!

I had the same problem with gas mileage when I got my 2wd. Exhaust, K&N filter, synthetic oil, and Superchips have given me an increase of over 30% in fuel mileage, so there is hope, but it'll never be a civic hybrid, thankfully.

I posted this on another newbie's first time post and I'll tell you too. It's not the miles per gallon that count, it's the fun per mile. But I understand if you want to get better mileage. My 2500 4X4 is getting 10 to 11 right now.
