Thanks all for the helpful responses. I am also looking into an
06 mega cab. Is anyone familiar with the recall on this model?
The carfax data from the dealer states this info:

Manufacturer Safety recall issued
Click here for a copy of the owner letter for this Recall or call 1- 800-853-1403 if you have any questions or need additional information on this recall. Manufacturer Safety recall issued

The 2006's had a recall for the ABS unit-recall #F05, recall for the steering linkage - #H46, and a warranty extension on the headlamp switch/turn signal - sent out a letter to owners extending the warranty to 150K on the switch.

A VIN search at Chrysler will get you a copy of the letter regarding the switch.

The H46 recall is an inspection of the front end parts, done in steps, the r&r whatever is necessary.

There should be information here in the wiki section about all of these.

I can also say that my 06 has 83k and only to the dealer for a rear axle seal warranty on both sides and the clutch switch now. Other than that it has been trouble free.

What was the reflash for? Thinking I might need it for my electrical issue
