    If I buy the FX4 package is there really any reason to get the trailer tow package, too? As far as I can tell, if you've selected the FX4 package, the only thing you get with the trailer tow package is the integrated brake controller and the back-up pro assist. I can see the back up pro assist being useful with a boat trailer but we have a travel trailer, not a boat. And the integrated trailer brake controller is nice, but the package is $1100 and I can get a trailer brake controller installed for just a couple hundred. (Cross posted to the gen 4 forum.)

    are there any delete/credit items for crossover items as a comparison?
    many packages are like that I believe.

    The towing package is $1500 without the FX4 package and $1100 with the FX4 package.
