Default Modding My Truck

I traded in my 2006 2WD Ford F150, and sold my 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 so that I could purchase a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab 4x4. I am not sure which version... SLT, etc.

I purchased chrome nerf bars, and installed them.
I installed a Kenwood DNX5140 AM/FM/Sirius/Nav unit.
-(Purchased a Double Din kit for this truck and cut the metal inside dash)
-(Can't locate the antenna piece anywhere... It is a very hard to find part to go from factory to normal)
I installed a rearview camera.
-(Ran wire from front of truck to rear and tapped into 7 pin for Reverse)
I installed a DBALL unit and the CHTHD1 T Harness.
I am waiting on the XKLoader2 to arrive so that I can program the truck so that it will acknowledge the DBALL for RSR.

When purchasing on EBay the DBALL and T Harness for this truck, or any for that fact... Be sure to ask what the seller is going to flash it for. I noted to flash it for a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad cab, and they did that.... With the standard flash, and not a RSR flash, or anything.

Has anyone had any problems with the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 that I should know about?

I wanted to add some features that I could have gotten the parts from a junk yard for... (Heated seats, power inverter, etc...) Might wait on that stuff.

Check to see if the rear differential pinion was replaced via recall. Mine wasn't and almost caused a wreck.

Only had mine for a short time, and the only issue I've had thus far is the usual lock actuator, but like said above, I'd def talk to the dealership and see if the rear diff pinion recall was completed, and if not get it done before it's too late!!
