I have a similar question. I have found 2 different CC Sports that have many of the same options except two big differences. The first has the 8 speed with the 3.55's and the second has the 6 speed 3.92's but has the rear view camera and park assist. My deal is I don't pull much at all maybe 6-8 times a year. I do love the camera when I need it though. What is the big advantage of the 8 speed? I drive 40k miles a year, mostly highway, and my company pays for gas so MPG's aren't a big concern of mine. I'm not sure which is better for me. They both have the 8.4 screen with nav so I can always add a camera I guess. What are your thoughts?

I wouldn't put to much on the LSD. I have the open diff in WI too and didnt have any problems this winter either. The traction control and auto 4WD work really well. I have the 6sp with 3.55s and wish I had 3.92s. With thr 8spd I would keep the 3.55s.

I believe the traction/stability control applies brake to the slipping wheel, like my 05 RT Magnum. Believe it or not, my Magnum feels better in the snow than my 05 4x4, limited slip Ram. More important, in winter put some better tires than the 20" GY Wrangler HP's. Personally , that dark red is beautiful.
