Less the $500 Farm Bureau rebate:

Almost all of the options were chosen by Sue.

The Travel Convenience group was suggested by Judy, who knows the product and is as honest as a car sales person can get. We listened to her reasons and trusted her on this one.

This package includes the overhead console, lighted vanity mirrors, and an automatic dimming rearview mirror. Sue remains somewhat skeptical about the utility of this option.

I suggested the radio upgrade, security system, Camper package, and Plow prep.

Chrysler is building Quad Cabs with the 038/039 front spring combination which provides a cushy ride, but settles after several years with a loaded diesel truck. The Plow Prep usually increases the front spring to the 046/039 combination - we picked a good option combination and have 047/046 springs. The Camper package provides a rear stabilizer bar for better handling, and aux springs to keep the rear from sagging when the bed is loaded. The ride with the camper package is slightly stiffer when the truck is empty, but a tool box and some firewood will tame the ride.   

Originally, Sue said this truck was to remain stock. Delivery was 2 months away, and the goody list already included side bars, air horn, backup lights, bed liner, communications gear (she is KB4GEF), tow hooks, pac brake, front bumper, and a removable kayak rack. Future additions she has mentioned include better tires and a utility bed.

Optional Mousketeer Mirrors!      Flip to vertical for wide trailer towing - there is also a smaller wide angle mirror in the arm. Go horizontal for normal viewing, and for clearance in tight parking spaces.
