living out in the desert
get the tow hooks
get the skid plate
get at least a 3.90 differentials, limited slip or posi


think about wheel size, 20s or 17" ( 17"s rims are less costly if you tear one up )
you don't need to take the tires that are factory stock, the dealer carries other brands

pick which radio/media center that YOU want, they can change it out before you sign on the dotted line. the cheaper basic radios don't have voice commands, touch screen, or NAVigation

i would go with the largest fuel tank, 32 gallons or more

in fact, make sure everything is written in the contract, before signing

this advice is for either brand of vehicle

Happy Hunting
