A buddy at work got a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab Laramie and I got the 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab Laramie with a few extra options. He was able to get the $6000 rebate, I got $3500. The 2010 does have the IPOD connection in the glove box, the 2009 does not. His 2009 doesn't display the ECO/Fuel Saver icon like mine does when ever the MDS kicks in. Also his EVIC display doesn't show as many things as in the 2010. His 2009 didn't come with a locking tailgate and I read that if the truck was made before December, then that's the reason. Because after December they come with the locking tailgate.

Other than those few differences, they are basically the same truck. I think the most important thing is the locking tailgate. But if you can still find an 2009 and get a $6000 rebate, then go for it. I looked and looked and I coudln't find any 2009's that had the black interior and either the red, blue, or black exterior. I could have gotten a 2009 silver with tan leather....but I wouldn't have been so happy.

Good luck.
