I believe some Daytonas had an optional front tow hook package. In fact, on some of the older models, I have seen tow hooks installed. You could check out Mopar and see if anything is available for...

Yes, if you look on the drivers door (or perhaps the jam) it will indicate where the truck was assembled. I noticed the sticker on the door one day with my 2500 when I was cleanning it.

I would be surprised if they change the looks very much given the newly designed 2500/3500s came out in late 2010. With Ford and GM offering various engines with mpg in mind with some, I would be...
