Pretty well, as long as you leave the seat heaters set to "low", or "off"

How well does that dainty fancy seat upholstery handle farts?

Man, that turned out to be a world class troll, with the usual suspects
responding as expected.
 
However, like all stereotypes, there is always a grain of truth to the
troll.
 
I go off-road. A lot.
I've never been stuck
I've never been in the ditch.
I can (and do) pull a big trailer loaded with stuff.
I can hold a bunch of tools plus sheets of plywood and drywall in the bed
(with the tailgate down, it's roughly 8 feet) which is essential for my
construction projects.
I get a lot of ooohs and aaaahs from other truck guys.
My legal client base reacts MUCH better than if I was driving, say a Beemer,
which would feed directly into their stereotypes about lawyers (many of them
are truck guys and gals as well, and the truck emphasizes that I'm, well,
pretty regular too).  
 
As a bonus, I've yet to see someone NOT get the h*ll-outa-my-way when that
massive chrome grill rolls up on their tailpipe.
 
Full disclaimer here:  I got 28mpg driving a leisurely pace from New Jersey
to Buffalo a couple of summers ago.  I was amazed.  Around town mileage is
not great (only about 2/3 of that figure if I am light on the foot, which is
never).  But the highway mileage, as long as you can keep the engine running
on four instead of eight cylinders, is uniformly fantastic; way beyond
expectations, and enough that I've permanently shelved the idea of paying to
move up to a diesel (BTW, there is a diesel 1/2 ton in the pipeline for '14)
I'd like to trade this fall for a '14 to get the new eight-speed hemi.  The
mileage in those is apparently about 30% better yet, making it even harder
to justify the diesel.
 
And yes, it's gonna be a Longhorn version, complete with the
cattle-tan/etched interior.

Road bikers, you're on notice.
