Very exciting - Happy for you!
Our Hemi RAM 1500 is a (std cab long bed) Tradesman model with a full tow package (drivetrain, rear end, electric/digital, and hitch). Excluding the chrome package (bumpers and wheels), she is a plain Jane in a summer dress, a work truck with a shiny lunch box. We do not want or need a lot of bells and whistles. We wanted the drivetrain and tow equipment.
Our RAM is a very solid, reliable workhorse and performer (cruises and hauls like a champ). With 65K on the OD, we have had zero issues. It gets super mpg and rides great. We feel our RAM is the best vehicle investment that we have ever made, even better than our Camry. I know a lot of Ford owners feel the same about their F'ees, and they should. Both are proven trucks.
I installed Sumo Super Spring coils (rubber helpers) to the front because we mounted a class III receiver for bikes and a nice rack; they also help with the WD under load. I also installed Firestone Work-Rite "bump stop" springs in the rear. Both have been worthy investments. They make a difference with cornering, spring travel over bumps and rolls in the road, sudden braking, and windy conditions. They do not impact the unloaded ride and handling, but they help just enough under a load to maintain handling and stability at speed. It is fine without them, but INMO the suspension helpers are a wise investment; they are an easy and affordable mod that provide a decent performance nudge under load.
With a good WD hitch, you will love either truck. I would keep your budget and go for the one that feels best to you when you drive it. Don't focus on the digital gizmos and superfluous adornments. Which one do you want to drive the most? Sometimes, when vehicles flesh out equally with performance pros and cons, it comes down to the lines and visual aesthetics. For me, I think about the overall visual appeal since I will be the one detailing it. It may sound weird, but I do think about how much I will enjoy cleaning and caring for a particular vehicle. That's why I wanted some chrome on our modest RAM. I put a lot of sweat into the maintenance of our investments, so I look for vehicles that look sweet to me after I bust my butt on them - helps me stay motivated in their care. I definitely enjoy detailing the RAM more than the "jelly bean" sterile pedestrian Camry. Just me, and I am a bit of a fanatic. Pick one and post your pics!
