Things Ford need to add to 2011 SD

Hey guys,
Just putting together a list of things Ford missed on this truck. I hope to use this list to also figure out what I need when I buy my new truck.
HID lights- If I am paying this much for a truck it better have Factory HID.
AMP-research running board- you offer them on other vehicles why not the Super Duty?
Titan fuel tank. with this they should also include a cathider.
Air bags- any recomendations on brands?
Exhaust system
3M protection.
billet grill
recon mirror lights
tinted windows

What else needs to be added to this list

Are the goodyear wrangler tires that come with the 20" rims any good?

They did, it's called the park brake! Seriously i would like to see a manual option myself. That being said, after 2 full days of running around in a loaded f350 lariat, i will add my .02 . I prefer manuals, and would still like the option, but the auto setup did impress me. Second, ford really needs to rethink the plastic oil pan, and the location of the oil filter. Easy to service, but easy to damage in off road use. The transmission manual shift feature needs to be lit for night time use. The front of the cabin is nice, and layed out well, the back seat[crew cab] was sort of plain in my opinion. This seems to be something all 3 brands could address. Colors, i do not like blk interior, so the tan should be offered in more of the exterior color combos. The blue for example, would look very nice with tan interior and a tan lower accent. Or a light grey interior option. A few more color options would be nice period.. Overall i really liked the truck, but feel the sticker price is about 5k to high. I could say the same for gm truck's also...

I agree, a power locking tail gate makes more sense than a key...

35 gal tank in the short bed should be standard, not 26 gal. Rear Factory DVD options and/or dual screens. Limited slip differential option on SRW. Open or Electric Locking are the only choices. Even better, I would like to see a forgiving True Trac Limited Slip Diff. option in the front axle. An Optional Rear suspension Air Bags??

Heated steering wheel, rain sensing wipers, the ability to activate the remote start with it running and take the key with you into a store, and def. the locking tailgate.
