Customize the new Ram 1500 with up to 200 parts and accessories

It’s been just a month since Ram debuted the brand-new 1500 pickup truck at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, and FCA is already offering a wide range of aftermarket parts and accessories. Showcased on a concept truck at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show, these new accessories cover everything from the exterior and interior to the drivetrain and the chassis. Most of them will become available in a few months, so you can start planning a Moparized model if you’re not happy with the standard and optional Ram features.

Described as an "outdoor, sport-themed truck," this Mopar-specced vehicle sports a unique, slightly more aggressive exterior, a more upscale interior, and lift kit that turns it into a more capable off-road explorer. The parts and accessories are taken from a list of around 200 items that can be purchased from Mopar via FCA dealerships. That’s quite a big selection, unlike anything you get from the competition. Let’s have a closer look at some of these features in the review below.

The biggest change lies below the bodywork, in the form of 18-inch wheels wrapped in massive, 35-inch tires

The new Ram 1500 looks surprisingly boxy. At least compared to the outgoing model. Not that I have a problem with that, but it feels as if the new 1500 blends in with the other trucks easier than before, and I used to Ram being a bit unique. The good news is that the new Mopar parts work great with the truck’s new design. Based on the Big Horn Sport model, the show car is finished in Flame Red, a color that already gives it a sporty look. Granted, the biggest change lies below the bodywork, in the form of 18-inch wheels wrapped in massive, 35-inch tires.

The red paint is combined with black accents here and there. There are black stripes on the engine hood, blacked-out emblems and badges all over the place, and black wheelarch trim. The truck is also equipped with body-length Mopar off-road cast aluminum running boards, which add both visual appeal and functionality. A skid-resistant stepping surface offers better grip in muddy or wet conditions.

The front and rear seats are wrapped in black Katzkin leather, and feature Rebel Red stitching

Finally, the concept features the unique Ram Rack first showcased as prototype part on the Ram Macho Power Wagon at the 2016 SEMA. Set to become available this year, the rack is adjustable, can slide all the way up to the front section, and mounts to the available production bed rails. A Mopar bed step makes loading stuff easier.

The interior standard out by means of added premium features and a color layout that matches the exterior. The front and rear seats are wrapped in black Katzkin leather, and feature Rebel Red stitching and logos on their seatbacks. The same stitching adds a splash of color to the door panels and center console. The new all-weather floor mats with Ram’s head logo have deeper channels and higher, more rigid side walls to contain water and debris. Now that’s one feature that helps keep the cabin clean. Finally, the doors sill guards are now made from brushed aluminum and have "RAM" lettering.

The Mopar Ram Airflow cold-air intake system feeds a steady flow of air into the engine

The Mopar package doesn’t alter the engine. In this case, the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 remains standard and generates the same 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. The only improvements here are the Mopar Ram Airflow cold-air intake system that feeds a steady flow of air into the engine and the performance cat-back exhaust. The latter is made from stainless steel and have bigger, five-inch tips for an aggressive look.

The truck benefits from a two-inch lift kit for additional off-road clearance. The lift also enables the 1500 to accommodate the oversized tires and six-lug rims. The black wheel flares provide additional protection against trail hazards.

Most of these parts and accessories will become available to customers in the coming months.

Press release

The Ram Truck and Mopar brands teamed up today at the Chicago Auto Show (CAS) to debut an outdoor-sport-themed 2019 Ram 1500 modified with a selection of the more than 200 Mopar parts and accessories available for the all-new truck.

The customized show truck highlights the large menu of Mopar products, created through thousands of hours of testing and validation, available for the all-new Ram 1500. The fit, finish and function of all Mopar parts and accessories were developed in close concert with Ram Truck engineers and designers to harmonize with the all-new Ram.

“At the Chicago Auto Show, Mopar is showcasing the art of the possible when it comes to accessorizing the all-new Ram 1500,” said Pietro Gorlier, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar), FCA. “With more than 200 parts and accessories, available at launch, Mopar delivers the largest array of factory-backed, authentic products to personalize the new Ram 1500 and make it truly one of a kind.”

The Flame Red 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn Sport 4x4 showcased at the Chicago Auto Show is equipped for the outdoors with a 2-inch Mopar lift kit that delivers additional off-road clearance and an aggressive appearance, while accommodating oversize, large tread 35-inch tires. Mopar 18-inch, six-lug off-road beadlock-capable wheels with matching trim rings keep the tires pegged to the rims when aired down for increased off-road grip and traction.

Black Mopar off-road wheel flares accentuate the 35-inch tires and provide additional defense against trail hazards. Durable, body-length Mopar off-road cast aluminum running boards add both visual appeal and functionality, with a skid-resistant stepping surface that offers better grip in muddy or wet conditions.

The 5-ft. x 7-ft. bed features a unique Mopar offering that will be available in the near future — a lifestyle Ram Rack, first shown as a prototype part on the Ram Macho Power Wagon concept vehicle at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. Large gear can be secured to the truck, demonstrating the capacity of the Ram Rack to store and transport a variety of lifestyle equipment.

The rear Ram Rack is adjustable, with the ability to slide all the way up to the front Ram Rack. The Ram Rack system mounts to the available production bed utility rails. A Mopar bed step, featuring an articulating arm, lowers down for easy access.

The new Mopar “Ram Airflow” cold-air intake system feeds a steady flow of fresh air to the 395-horsepower, 410 lb.-ft. of torque, 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine. The intake, scheduled for availability later this year, is compatible with all hood applications for the all-new Ram and works in concert with the Mopar performance cat-back exhaust, which is constructed from AL409 stainless steel and emits a deep exhaust note.

Mopar 5-inch dual exhaust tips complete the package and feature dual wall thickness, fitting snug to the bumper and providing a smoother edge. Other exterior touches include matching black Mopar hood graphic stripes, blacked-out Ram emblems and badging, front tow hooks and a Mopar logo hitch plug.

Inside, premium black Katzkin leather seats in the front and back are embroidered with Rebel red Ram’s head logos on the seatbacks. The same Rebel red stitching also accents the seats, door trim and center console. New Mopar all-weather floor mats are embellished with the Ram’s head logo and constructed with deeper channels and higher, more rigid sidewalls to contain water and other debris. Mopar brushed aluminum door sill guards carry the R-A-M text logo.
