Default mods ?

bought my first dodge monday and i love it. i got a good deal on one of the lower based models, i'm really not sure what package is on the truck but i think it's an express. i have not had time to figure anything out about the truck yet but i'll jump on that this weekend.
a couple of mods i'm thinking about and need some input from y'all. i'd like to replace the factory radio (RES i think) with one that has in-dash gps. can i get an aftermarket unit that will still allow the uconnect and satelite radio to work. i've never had satelite radio before and it's pretty nice and i have a free one year subscription.
also, WTF is up with no map lights?! the only interior light is the dome light like the cars i had in the 70's and 80's. i know some of the Rams have a "roof console" with maps lights, garage door opener, etc., can i add that on my truck?
the factory drop in bed liner is coming out to be replaced with a lineX. is the Premium lineX worth the extra $$?
what do you think about a K&N/Flowmaster set up for a little more "growl"?

yes you can get an aftermarket head unit that will allow you to have u connect and satellite radio, you just need to buy a certain harness that allows it, and a special plug in for the sirius satellite

as for all the other stuff, i have no idea haha, I'm just leaving my bed until it gets scratched up then get linex.

btw you can tell yours is an express if it has colormatched bumpers, if it doesn't, then its likely an SLT

btw, we all love pictures

I have the series 63 K&N CAI and flowmaster on my 2012 and I love it...sounds mean when you get on it but not annoying at cruising or low throttle ....definitely helps top end

For the flowmasters....they sound nice but for better performance (you won't really notice with just a muffler swap) go with magnaflow. They aren't as loud but when used in support of other mods it performs better. Also if you get the cat back kit it comes with some sweet ass 5" tips. looks fantastic. The K&N isn't a bad system but try looking at a few others as well. .S&B and vararam. Those are the two that I am torn between getting. Congrats on the new truck.
