    Auto dimming side mirrors (make sure both auto dim, some vehicles only the driver side does), auto folding side mirrors, auto dim rear view mirror, color matches side mirrors, ram LED bed lights (mounted on the side Wells near the tailgate), sunroof, front mounted wrench, cargo camera, all LED interior lights, all black package from the pillars to the headboard, fender flares, interior wheel well covers... I could probably think of more but that's what I got so far. I mentioned some things that are standard on the Rebel, but not the sport. Here's a pic of mine... with a nice toy attached. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the suggestions (and beautiful Sport you have there!)

    There are a few items on your list that I'm not familiar with... for example:
    Front-mounted wrench (or maybe you mean winch, which I also haven't see an option for)
    Cargo camera (unless that's the backup camera)

    Yeah I meant winch. But Ram also makes a camera that is mounted in the third brake light called a cargo cam.

    For those who live where there's cold weather, how important is the rear window defroster? It's an option i thought i needed, but not sure about...

    My dealer says he has a truck with all my options other than that.

    I can't see it being that much of an issue. Let the truck warm up and you should be good. I drove mine in the first snow/slush yesterday and didn't have any issues...and the rear window didn't need to be defrosted.

    Will your Rebel be garaged? If it sits out in the snow all the time over the winter I can see the rear window defroster being much more useful.

    I ended up pulling the trigger on a black 2018 Rebel... with more options than I initially wanted (sunroof and Alpine) because it was the closest match the dealer could find.

    The good news is that they were willing to give me a fantastic deal on the 18 (very close to what they came up with on the 17), so it made sense all around. And apparently the 18s now come with Google Auto and Apple Car Play, which was a nice surprise.

    Thanks for all the input, guys - really great and helpful forum. Pictures to follow when I pick up the truck on Saturday!

    Piiiics!! I love my Rebel, just wish it wasn't a pain to lift/level the Air Suspension. That's my only gripe!
