Then don't order them? You can still get the brake controller and hitch without them.

I hear ya Rob, though not an option offered to me as they come included with the Trailer Tow Group. I'll certainly enjoy them while towing, especially with the travel trailer. I could have went with an after-market brake controller I suppose.

AHC TRAILER TOW GROUP

  • Class IV Receiver Hitch
  • Power Heat Trailer Tow Mirrors w/Lamps
  • Black Exterior Mirrors
  • Exterior Mirrors w/Supplemental Signals
  • Exterior Mirrors Courtesy Lamps
  • Exterior Mirrors w/Heating Element
  • Trailer Brake Control
Still excited. You bet.

Tow mirrors are nice for normal driving. I love them on my 2014 sport.

I just thought that if you were ordering it yourself that instead of the trailer tow group, you would just order the mirrors and brake controller separately which you could do if you haven't placed your order yet. I have no doubt the tow mirrors would make for a better towing experience (I've never tried them) but my towing amounts to maybe 5% of my yearly driving. I also needed the power fold option for backing into my garage with only inches to spare on 3 of the 4 sides.

Yeah you can get the brake controller and hitch receiver as stand-alone options. That's what I did! Probably not too late to change your mind on the order if that'll make you happier.

Either way sweet truck!

Had a quick look on ramtrucks.com site today, and reviewed the payload/towing capacities for the '14 Ram Sport. While the resultant figures showing 1,424 lbs max payload and 10,100 lbs max towing were not a surprise, look at that MSRP!! Only $4,096,050

I think the suggested retail price reflects the recent MT2014 award may be going to their head..lol

Did you order 2?? Because that is probably exactly what I would order if I could afford it right down to the colour.

You might not have that much payload. I have almost the exact same truck and my door sticker is showing 1050 max payload... Very disappointing, that's not what the salesperson told me... I think it's because of the weight of the options
