Here are a few things worth mentioning when comparing my old 2010 1500 with the 2012 PW. These are my observations when comparing the two, aside from the obvious like being a 4wd PW and the new 66RFE (which is awesome).

The EVIC is about the same. It now shows OK next to tire pressure if the pressures are within spec. One cool new feature on the EVIC is it stays on the last menu you had it on prior to shutting the truck off. So, if you have the MPG screen up, it will be up on the next start rather than the main screen. It also says RAM now instead of Dodge when you start the truck.

RPMs with the new 6 speed and 4.56 gears aren't too bad at all. I am only 200 RPM higher at 70 MPH than the old truck with stock size 33" tires and 3.92 gears.

The new steering wheel is ok. I actually liked the bigger buttons on the front of the wheel and the cruise on the separate stalk, but this setup will be fine once I get used to it. The wheel feels a little different than the last truck, even though both were leather wrapped. This one has a smoother, higher quality feel to it. Also the radio control buttons on the back of the wheel feel a little different as well. They have more of a click to them instead of a soft press.

I don't have the center console anymore but actually like the flip up center seat a little better. It has dividers inside to separate stuff so it's not in one big catchall storage. My knee doesn't have to rest on the center console and it feels a little more comfortable. I also have a small storage area under the center seat. The seat also sits up a little higher. Not sure if it's change with the newer model or if it's an HD thing, but I am sitting an inch or two higher and the seat won't drop any more. Not a big deal, it's still very comfortable.

The switch for the power rear slider has changed. It's more like the side window switches instead of a couple of buttons. The front side window switches now say AUTO on them as well.

The built in power inverter now has a ground hole. Now I don't have to rip the ground prong off my laptop cords... The little cover door now folds down instead of up, which makes more sense.

That's about the only common differences between the two that I have noticed... Just a few minor tweaks here and there, nothing too major.

My list would have been a lot longer than yours comming from my 2004 to the Power Wagon. I'm glad you're liking your new truck so far.

A lot of those changes sound like me 2011 Sport. The EVIC settings, staying on the same menu, OK next to tire pressure, rear window slider button, auto up down on both front windows switches, RAM on EVIC on start up, I didn't know that much had changed between 10 and 11, not to mention the rear axle. Congrats on the PW. Awesome looking trucks.

If you are in the main menu and scroll up to tire pressure it should look something like this Tire Pressure: OK it may say Tire PSI: OK I'm not sure which one it is.

EDIT: Then if you actually go into the tire pressure sub menu it tells you the pressure for each tire.

We'd have more fun off road if you got one.

I'm glad to hear from somebody about the center seat. That's one of the big things on the interior of this truck that really drew me in was that big center console. I've never really been a fan of the seat in the middle, but sounds like they made good use of the space. Doesn't help me NOT want a Power Wagon though, lol. Lucky for me I haven't seen one sitting out at my dealer lately. If they ever get a black one in I may be in trouble...

i did not want the center console, i like being able to move my knees more, and extra seat if needed for a small kid or for the other half (woman if you are a man, man if you are a woman) to slide over closer, the seats themselves are the same seat that you sit in be it console or jump seat.

Sounds alot like my 2011. I personally don't care for the calculator/crowded button look of the 2012 steering wheel.
