I pretty sure marty robbins himself said in an interview once that horse stealing is probably what got everyone in an uproar. I could be wrong though.

Concentrate on your expression, feeling, and exploration. These three qualities (even if they are nebulous) are what made the Dead sound truly magical. Don't listen to all these "tone" cowboys, you can get to that magical space without spending lots of $$.
Maybe you might even find a sound of your own along the way.

I think the true beuty to jerry's tone is that it always sounded perfect. It was high pithced-yet low pithced at the same time; it was distorted-yet clean at the same time. it had reverb but was clean at the same time.
Use 2 amps. have one set with no reverb at all and more of a higher pithced sound, one that is good for hearing notes on the G B and high E. Then set another amp with a really warm, rich tone. have it set more for low end and crank up the reverb. use a A/B switch or another pedal to split it (i use a line6 delay modeller and run my guitar and all effects mono into it and ouput form the line6 as stereo to my two amps). I put all my effects in line before the splitter so they go into both amps equally.
Using dual amps is the easiest way to get jerry tones that I know of. Dual amps will do much more for your tone than any effects you will buy.
