Great info on the tv, thanks. What options do I have in mounting the spare gas? (I was thinking of a large gas tank and a Pilot Relief tube for the wife ). I'll look into the two mfg. that was mentioned. Good experience info on the tail gate - thanks. Glad to hear the MaxTow pkg. has everything I need. Keeps it simple. Any other gear that people use that might be useful - temp sensors, upgrades to the interior etc.?

You could mount either a replacement for the OEM fuel tank or an in-bed fuel tank/toolbox combo, or both. Check with TransferFlow - they offer both designs, I believe. Remember, though, that the weight of the tank and that extra fuel eats into the truck's GVWR and GCWR.

On this truck, I haven't added any supplemental sensors. The EVIC (electronic vehicle information center) gives you digital readouts of coolant temp, trans temp, oil pressure, etc., and the computers are monitoring exhaust temps at the inlet to the emissions control hardware. Since my engine is stock (no need to upgrade it - it has all the power I need), my philosophy is to drive the thing and let the computers protect the powertrain. If it melts down, Dodge can replace it under the 5 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty or the extended warranty. So far, no problems at all.

Plow through the options lists and you can get just about any upgrade you'd want on the interior. For instance, our truck has voice-activated Bluetooth for the phones and infotainment/navigation system, heated rear seats, heated and cooled front seats, etc. The only options we didn't get were the sunroof and the rear seat DVD entertainment system - our Shelties get bored watching Lassie reruns. The Laramie Longhorn is even a step up from our truck if you need more gizmos and foo-foo.
