Glad to hear its all good. I also like the katzskin seats. I am getting mine redone with the Lone Star logo embossed on it after I saw a few on the lots here. I actually liked it better than the stock leather. The logo matches it with my trim level better.

Hi HESM - yes, I have the 8.4AN - from the factory it had the latest update .. it is working very well. NAV is great, FM sounds like HD (but we dont have HD yet in Canada) - Bluetooth with my blackberry is working well.
All in all, so far (knock on wood) - the radio is behaving.

I read a few posts, where sales people said NO to this option and NO to that option. I think the 8.4AN just opened up as an option about the time I ordered mine .. 8 weeks ago.

Hi RayanJM - thanks - the leather feels great .. I don't have any logo .. but that is OK .. they do look great .. glad I had it done, as the SLT had no leather option from the factory .. I had to pay to get the bucket seat option that I wanted .. to get all the other features from the buck seat option.

With the Katzkin, I also got the heated seats for both seats in the front.
The nicely installed the two switches on the console. The heated seats come with low/high switch.

Arietem, sorry for so many questions but I am looking for exactly what you got just in Deep Cherry Red. So, the fender flares were painted to color as ordered? I am looking to add those as well.

Hi HESM .. it seems as if they only come pre-painted in that color ..
The Mopar link is this: http://www.mopar.com/part/82211720AC...i=276657&b=ram

The description that is on the website is: Mineral Grey (CDM) with a medium Grained Textured Finish (can be painted). Same as production TRX wheel flares.

I thought - worst case, I'll have to sand it a bit and maybe a shot or two of paint .. then a clear coat - well to my surprise .. SAME COLOR and the finish was just as the truck .. metallic specs and a sweet clear clear coat.

If you are looking at the same color as your truck, it may be best to either get a local shop to quickly prep and paint .. or if you have the time, do the prep and paint.

The install was easy, took me about 15-20 mins per fender, removing old screws .. cleaning the area with alcohol - fitting, screwing back - making the 2-way tape stick well .. etc ..

This YouTube Video also gave me an idea of what to expect and what to do .. I used a hand rachet .. wanted to feel the torque of the screws going back on.

Nice looking truck! What does your capacity badge say just inside the cab pillar with the driver door open? Just curious since I've seen numbers all over the place...

Be sure to keep us updated on real world gas mileage. I was looking to test drive a V6 but they were elusive and since I tow some heavy stuff every once in a while I went ahead and got the tried and true hemi & 6 spd.

Hi Turbo - it shows 625kg/1,369lbs for occupants and cargo.
I'm keeping my eyes on the mileage .. so far no long highway runs ..
since Friday .. I am showing an average of 15litres/100km .. or 15.6 MPG ...
a lot of in town .. when I am on the highway .. I can float between 7-9Litres/100km or 33 to 26 Mpg .. I am sure it will get better as it adapts to my driving and the truck breaks in .. I've been reading it can take up to 3,000 km or 1,800 miles before the truck really starts to offer it's performance.

Regards
