$1,300 is a nice chunk of money. Do you have a tight garage where you'll use them every day?
There were two main reasons.
1. Because I do use them quite regularly. I have a tight garage and fold them in every night before I park. I have grown used to them as I have them on my 2011 Avalanche as well. I am just in the habit of folding them in when I park (regardless of in the garage or not).
2. It was a challenge that I took on personally. I have done similar electronic add-ons on my 2006 Corvette (added a 2008 NAV and steering wheel controls after the fact) and on my 2011 Avalanche (added heated steering wheel). Since this is my first Chrysler product it was a bit of a learning curve and I went in with both feet before I knew the depth of the pool. The fact that they control everything through a CAN signal and modules made this a bit more difficult but in the end it's just a power feed to two wires. So people attempting this after me will save $200+ on parts since you don't need the door modules.
