What kind of milage are you getting out of your truck?
Have you towed with it? How much? How would you rate it's capabilities?

I will, rarely, tow a 3400lb car on a trailer through north Texas (not much for hills). I want to make sure that whichever I do get, will pull that without stretching the trucks limits too far.

Any other comments on what to have/avoid/etc on a 2009 are welcome! I am looking to know the in's and out's of what I should want to have in a new-to-me Ram.
Hands down...Hemi. The 4.7 is a very competent motor, but the Hemi with the mds will give you better mileage overall. It will not have to work as hard as the 4.7...regardless of what you are towing. After owning a 2010 rc 4.7 and the 2011 hemi CC....I would never go back to a 4.7. For the record, the 4.7 did everything I asked, and did it well. You can find a good deal on a hemi equipped truck if you are patient.
