    I know you don't want to hear this but your best option is a factory setup. The wiring system is made for the truck and uses the trucks systems (ie fuse box, flashers, etc) and they are super reliable. I change a lot of aftermarket wiring after a couple of years due to feedback which makes the truck do some funny stuff. FYI....

    Winch, front hitch, step bars, bed extender, bed step, gull-wing toolbox, tailgate lock, security system, cb radio, etc.
    In addition to the oil and transmission coolers, also the heavy-duty battery, higher amp alternator, and trailer sway control (TSC) system. The OEM setup (with those, the hitch, 7-pin connector with 4-pin adapter, brake controller connector, etc) really is the best option.
