I will like to know from those of you who owned one...what are your likes and dislikes?
How has it been treating you so far? Any regrets? Is the mpg really that good?
My opinion:

Read the differences between the standard features of the SLT, Longhorn, Outdoorsman, and Laramie.

I got (ordered) an Outdoorsman 4X4 Crew Cab, Pentastar V6, 8 speed trans, 3.55 gears, 22T package. I liked the standard equipment of the Outdoorsman better.

Must have options for all models:

Pentastar V6
8 speed transmission
3.55 Rear Axle
ParkView rear backup camera
ParkSense rear park assist system


Options I also recommend getting:

Comfort Group
Rear Window Defroster
Chrome wheel to wheel side steps
506 watt Alpine Surround 9 speaker & subwoofer
8.4AN Navigation radio
Tri-fold Tonneau cover

I have all the above factory options installed on my Outdoorsman. MSRP $43,435 and the dealer discounted me $8,542 including incentives. I had a $2,000 trade in, plus tax, and paper work, my total cost out the door price was $35,082.

I have had the truck less than one week, but so far I am very satisfied with my purchase and the Penastar W\8 speed trans runs very good.
