Well you are from Alberta... so we can excuse your poor taste... My hitch cover reads " remove to tow fords". The ONLY reason to buy a Dodge is for the Cummings motor. Highest tow rating best mileage most torque and HP... GM Duramax....

Don't forget to mention that the GM Duramax is a copy of an Isuzu diesel.... err, I can't even spell "Chevolay" as the ad use to say.

I will second the CompuStar Alarm/Auto Starter system.
I use to install stereo and alarms in my younger days. I am on my 4th vehicle with the CompuStar Alarm/Auto Starter. I have installed all of them myself.
I have a Compustar system installed in the TT as well that is an alarm system only. Obviously I do not need an autostarter on the TT.
The alarm covers all doors and storage doors outside. Proximity sensors inside cover the windows and any other way they may decide to get inside such as the sky light in the bathroom.
I will always have an alarm system on any vehicle I own even if it is a Travel Trailer!!

You might be talking about specs from a different time period, today's (2011) highest tow rating goes to the Ford Super Duty line and their inhouse built Power Stroke.

But I don't want to continue to derail this thread.. how about we talk about vehicle security, not brand loyalty. =)

I'll look into that, I've heard good things about that and the Viper so far. Thank you!

They just changed it so they could claim that prize... but from what I hear it has already caused trouble.. when they reflashed some of the previously sold 2011's. The tranny could not handle the torque.. another reason to buy GM the mighty Alison transmission.. the 1000 series is used all the way up to a 10 ton truck.
