Customize Your Ram Truck With MOPAR® Accessories

America’s longest-lasting pickup is engineered for work and for play, and designed to perform in nearly any environment. It’s the reason Ram Trucks are as trusted for outdoor pursuits as they are for hauling materials to the worksite.

Of course, every Ram truck owner is driven by their own unique interests, which is why our factory-approved Mopar® accessories are such a great match for adding high-quality, reliable parts to customize your truck for your needs.

Here’s a small sampling of what’s available, to give you a sense of how Mopar can individualize your Ram truck, whatever your interests.

Outfitted for the Outdoors | 2016 Ram 1500

With a class-exclusive available RamBox® Cargo Management System and four-corner air suspension, the 2016 Ram 1500 is perfect for carrying all your toys to the great outdoors. Whether you’re camping, hiking, fishing or hunting, the Ram 1500 is your partner in adventure.

When you need to get your boat to the lake or your ATV to the trails, the carriers and cargo hauling accessories will help with the towing. Additionally, the trailer tow mirror will help improve visibility with convex spotter glass for better blind spot visibility. It’s also mounted on sturdy steel to help ensure stable, vibration-free reflections.

1And when the day is through, the Camo Truck Tent in Mossy Oak® is the perfect way for outdoor lovers to spend a night under the stars. This custom-fit tent includes a sewn-in floor, large interior with 5.5 feet of headroom and a full rainfly to protect you from the wettest weather. Campsites have rarely been so mobile.

Workday Comfort | 2016 Ram 2500

For workers who are on the move, day in and day out, the 2016 Ram 2500 keeps the workday moving with a best-in-class gas-powered HEMI® engine featuring 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque.*

As you drive from location to location, and get in and out of your truck, you’re bound to bring the elements in with you. During inclement weather, Mopar all-weather slush mats ensure your truck will stay clean and dry for years to come.

2And to make sure you’re comfortable after putting in long hours, the Mopar side window air deflector will allow you cool down the cabin without letting in rain and snow. The workday never felt quite so comfortable.

 

 

Tools of the Trade | 2016 Ram 3500

The 2016 Ram 3500 features best-in-class diesel towing of up to 31,210 lbs.* This truck is a flat-out workhorse, and since it’s sure to do its fair share of heavy lifting on the construction site, adding a Mopar toolbox is a great way to keep your tools secure and dry.

3The Mopar toolboxes are constructed of powder-coated aluminum in a diamond plate tread pattern, and can hold up to 300 pounds of cargo depending on vehicle application.

Features include key-locking single-lid design, gas cylinders for easy lift and full weather stripping to help seal out moisture and dust.
