Favorite option on your RAM?

There seems to be quite a few threads about what's your biggest complaint on your truck and sporadic threads on specific options and if they're worth it. Curious, of all the optional equipment you have which one are you most glad you got?

For me, it's definitely the advanced safety group. We have a 2016 Subaru Forester with their eyesight system and the RAM system is substantially better. The adaptive cruise sees quite far down the road and is much less abrupt and panicky. Makes optimizing parking a breeze with sensors and 360 cam. The forward collision braking has already saved me once from rear ending an F150 that stopped suddenly while I was distracted. I know some folks have had gripes about it but it's not given me any issues yet.

I'd have to agree with you on the safety group. I love the blind spot monitor and 360 surround cam. The adaptive cruise control was the game changer for me though. I knew it was there but was more excited about the pano roof and other toys. Once I used the adaptive cruise it become one of my favorite options. I absolutely love my Ram. Had Ford F-150 previously and the cab fit and finish is far above the Ford.

In no particular order.....

1. Passive entry, grab the door handle and truck is unlocked.
2. Panoramic sunroof
3. Heated / cooled seats
4. Alpine stereo, Ive always had to upgrade the sound in my vehicles but I can live with the alpine
5. LED head / tail lights

1) Advanced Safety Group, specifically the 360 camera. It makes parking this beast easy. Not sure I'd dare park in my just-barely-big-enough garage without it, much less back out past a car parked on the other side of the driveway. Adaptive cruise control is mighty nice as well. The ASG was a very expensive option for me given that I wasn't really interested in the level 2 equipment group (Laramie) but it was a prerequisite.
2) Panoramic sunroof — I love the natural light, especially in winter.
3) Heated steering wheel — Again, a winter luxury, and one that makes me feel ridiculously spoiled. Frankly, the entire interior (and the ride) makes me feel that way. No surprise that cars.com named it luxury car of the year.

Wasn't sure what my answer was going to be coming into this thread.

I guess remote start. Even though I haven't used them much, i like my ram boxes.

Has to be everything related to towing. The flip out mirrors (work fantastic, no more aftermarket clamp-on POS towing mirrors), air suspension, 3.92 ratio, and the 33 gallon tank. Much, much better towing experience than my previous half tons..
