2009 Dodge Ram 1500: Is the Rambox Worth It?

October 12, 2009


I like the fact that Dodge tried to be innovative with the design of the new Ram, but I'm not finding the new Rambox option all that helpful. It seems like a good idea on paper, but I've used this truck for various chores and rarely have I found a good use for the sidewall boxes.

Maybe if we had harsher weather I would feel more compelled to jam stuff into the narrow storage boxes. Or if I used the truck as a utility vehicle for a daily job. But on a personal use vehicle, the Ramboxes just take up bed space that I'd rather have instead.
