With a lot of pre-spec`d models having already been at dealerships we`re bound to see these packages more in the initial batch of Rebels than others.

Would the price of the Rebel go down after the initial batch with all the packages included are sold?
I highly doubt that will happen, no good reason I can see for them to do that and there's only so much they can lower price by which wouldn't be low enough to make a difference.

I just got my Rebel last Friday and my dealership is saying that adding the tow mirrors is "Incompatible" and the system won't let her. I'd like to confirm if anyone else has added the mirror after factory successfully. It reads that I will lose the "Auto Dimming External Mirror" and "Heated External Mirror" features from the Luxury group but still maintain the "External Turn Signal" , "External Courtesy Lamps" and "Power Folding Mirror" features. Can anyone confirm this? Thank you!

I am willing to give up the features i listed above in exchange for the tow mirrors. I have a Ram 2500 with the mirrors and they are AMAZING for towing. They making parking a breeze, and lane changes are safely executed without having to triple check my blind spots so many times.

You can just wait for 1AAuto to have the power fold tow mirrors.. they are supposed to be plug and play for stock 1500 power fold mirrors.. Saw on another forum that they will be released soon..

for me, getting out and manually folding them twice a day would get a bit annoying. Rumour is that you can use the 2500 power fold tow mirrors on the 1500 with power fold non-tow...

Are you saying that if I swapped the mirrors out with the factory tows, I'd lose the ability to power fold also?
Not sure. I know there was someone who was wanting the factory tow power folding but adding it to a truck that didn't have power folding from the factory wasn't possible.. but if you have power folding mirrors it may be a direct replacement.. they were waiting for 1AAuto to get the mirrors in since they couldn't get them directly from mopar.. not sure.. you can find the thread pretty easy on one of the other ram forums.. think it was ramforumz.

In addition to other things, the trailering bundle pre-wires the truck for a 7-stick trailer association, the kind that backings electric trailer brakes and trailer battery charging by means of the alternator when moving. It's altogether incorporated with the wire tackle and combined in the under-hood intertwine box.

The main thing missing is an electronic trailer brake controller. The present age Silverado choices list offers an inherent one, yet that choice isn't accessible on the Colorado.

This isn't irregular. Worked in trailer brake controllers in full-measure trucks are a moderately new advancement. So we essentially did what truck proprietors dependably upped until a couple of years prior: We introduced our own.

In the current past, pre-wired tow-bundle trucks would accompany a little sub-bridle that was full in a sack in the glove compartment or covered up under a seat. It'd have a connector toward one side and uncovered wires on the other. The thought was you'd join you're trailer brake controller to the exposed wires and connect the connector to a holding up repository under the dash.
