Welcome to CF.
Since your family is growing, you'll probably want a MegaCab, unless you must have an 8' long bed, then you will have to stay with the Crew Cab.
As far as the tranny's, if you want 900Ft Lbs. you must get the Aisin Tranny. These are pretty stout units.
Not that the 68RFE's are a bad tranny. (800Ft Lbs.) Some people have had problems but the majority do not.
No tranny is going to be fidiot proof. Throw a bunch of extra power at it and try some boosted launches, well you get the idea.
The G56's are down rated on the torque due to the stock clutches. Ram as well as any other manufacturer will set up the tranny to be as quiet and easy shifting as possible. They can always be upgraded with a DD setup.
