I read that 2006 WAS the first year for Rams to have the MDS system, other dodge vehicles had the system sooner

the site that i trust for information reads
The 2005 model year brought a switch from the NV3500 five-speed manual transmission to the Getrag 238 six-speed gearbox (3.7/4.7 engines), and a low lockup speed and turbine damper added to the 545RFE with 4.8 V8. The 3.7 engine was treated to numerous economy and idle-quality changes, with a new cam profile, lash adjusters, rings, and a 9.7:1 compression ratio; and the 4.7 got EGR and knock sensors.
2006 saw the first application of the MDS system to the Hemi on trucks, increasing gas mileage around 20% by switching to four cylinders when eight were not needed; using variable line pressure on the four-speed automatic helped mileage and longevity. A front axle disconnect on 4x4 increased gas mileage. The frame was re-engineered and hydroformed for greater rigidity and strength. Numerous cosmetic and feature changes were made at this time.

ugh oh man i dont have (or even know if im getting) this truck yet and i already have things forming in my head lol. im thinking of a nice color scheme right now. i dont want to ruin the warranty if i buy it so i would have to do little things like changing the license plate bulbs and adding interior LED strips. im thinking of a movie/character on what my color scheme could be black + ____
