On the Ram, the cruise control also can operate the engine brake, and depending on the weight of the trailer you get, might not need any standard brake application once engaged.

Myself, personally, I don't want a computer deciding when and how much to apply the brakes in everyday driving. If something goes wrong with that system, I'd be very unhappy if it suddenly decided I needed full brake application at the wrong time. I'm not a trusting early adopter.

Surprised this has not been mentioned. Dodge offers factory rear air suspension. Last I checked they were the only one. This is a huge plus towing heavy. If, Heaven forbid, I had to get a ldt, it would be a Dodge because of this.

Did not realize this is offered on the 3500. Thought it was only the 1500.

Sure is. Truck stays level and ride is improved. Love the air ride on my truck but mine is cab, seats, front and rear air. Sweet.
