Default Aftermarket Alarm System

The wife and I traded in our 2007 Durango for a 2010 Ram 1500 ST crew cab. We looked at a SLT model but it didn't have the Hemi and we have a travel trailer we pull and the SLT was also a quad and the wife didn't like the room in the back for the kids. It doesn't have an alarm or keyless entry so we have been looking into an aftermarket alarm.

I called the Dodge dealer service department today and ask them if an aftermarket alarm would void my warranty and they said yes. They said they had a Caravan they sold new that the customer had a Viper alarm installed on it and the installer fried almost every computer in the Van. They said it was thousands of dollars of damage and it was not covered. He looked in the computer and said he doesn't see a factory alarm available but he could put the remote start in it and that may also give me keyless entry. We aren't sure what to do I want the features of an aftermarket but don't want to void anything. Has anyone else run into this dilemma?
