Default 2013 PW vs. PW Laramie seat question

As I wait on my re-eval VA Disability decision (bumping me from 50% to 100% & most likely Special Monthly Compensation...& on the low side I'd get a 6 figure back-pay check) I've been thinking about FINALLY being able to get the truck I want, instead of what I can afford. On the Ram site, it says that the PW-L has everything on the Laramie+... I talked to the outstanding Vietnam Veteran who sold me my 1500 Express last year at the dealership & the dealership & they can't answer the question with 100% certainty... Do the friggin PW-L's have heated AND VENTILATED front seats like the Laramie, or do I have to buy one of the "pretty" trucks instead? I want to go off-road in relative comfort & continue to live my life & camp & such without my "disabilities" getting in the way.

Hi Mac - first of all let me thank you for your service - I dont know the answer but I do know I have a fully loaded power wagon but it does NOT have heated seats - maybe it is an option - the dealer should be able to tell this pretty quick - if not then you arte talking to the wrong person at the dealer. Again - Thank You

ive got a 2012 pw its got every thing but leather.. its comfy but the solid axles make for bumpy rides on anything but smooth paved roads, and the gas milage is horrible i usually get 10-13 mpg on the highway, if there is a head or cross winds its 9-10 mpg. consider that too befor u buy the PW.. im looking at droping down to a 1500 alramie with every thing but rambox

Sounds like something is amiss. I got better than that stock and with my mods I get 11-13 in town and 16-17 on the freeway. Not sure how many miles you have on yours or how you drive but i get the same or better mpg in my PW than I did in my 1500 with 33" tires.

i agree with them too i'm getting better mpg's than that and i have an 07 with over 100k on the clock. as far as the seats go you could always call the top dodge dealer in your area and ask about the seat you want. if they are any kind of decent dealership they might even help you get what you need for your service to your country and your injuries. it never hurts to ask.
