Remote start install$$$

Dealer quoted me 295.00 for the install and the 2 key fobs! To much?

Sounds pretty good to me. Although I would go aftermarket so you can have it run longer than 10 or 15 mins and you will be able to do it further away. Got my clifford installed for $550 out the door.

Might want to double check the options on your truck too to see if your truck came w/ it and the dealer is just raping you for the remotes. Did they say what kind of remote start?

The factory remote start. The truck comes equipped with all the hardware you just have to program the ECM and get the key fobs!

Thats inline with what I have heard, doesn't seem off the wall to me. I had a Viper 5700 (I think) in my old truck, and it caused nothing but problems.

I'd get an aftermarket due to the added benefits and ability to let run for a longer period of time.

How long does the stock system let it run?
