I just ordered a '14. I got the snow plow group because it upgrades to a 220 amp alternator which should be more than enough for me, and a skid plate for the transfer case, which I should never need if everything goes right. I got the crew version, because I wanted the shortest wheelbase, and even with that, it won't fit in my garage anyway. I chose the auto tranny, because I wanted more horsepower, and don't like shifting in town and when trying to parallel park. I didn't spend the $90 on the cold weather group, the engine is already built with the heating element, all you need is the $15 cord. Make the dealer throw that in, and he will. I just bought a new RAM cold front on Ebay for $25 including shipping. You don't need to worry about plugging the truck in until you get into the single digits, and even then it will start OK without it, just warms up faster. I can squeeze 21 mpg out of my '97, but will be happy with 18 on this new. I didn't get the big tow mirrors, because it's just too much acreage out there to see around, and I've done fine with standard size mirrors for a long time.
