Not sure if you get the rear captains chairs if they can slide to give you more room.
The captains chairs are out because my wife likes to sit back there, especially when they are rear facing which my daughter still is at 18 months old. She'll be forward facing by the time the new baby is here so she'll go behind the driver's seat which will help with leg room up front.
I found the website below that shows the interior specs and allows you to compare vehicles. To my surprise, the Durango and GC are identical. The only thing you gain is a third row with less cargo room or more cargo room with the third row folded down. Not sure it's worth it at this point.
Before we found out about the 2nd kid, I was trying to get her into a Charger again. To my surprise, the Charger has more leg room, 3" overall. It's also got about 1/2" more legroom than my Ram Crew Cab. If we have a lot of crap to take along with us, we'll be in the truck with the bed cover, but for normal trips I'd like to not be in the gas hog truck... I think the Charger is looking pretty appealing right now. She had an SRT Charger before the Jeep and really misses it. I wouldn't go with another SRT but an R/T would be nice.
