2009 Dodge Ram 1500: Service and RamBox replacement

January 15, 2010

Back in October, Josh Jacquot posted that our 2009 Dodge Ram's RamBox was a neat idea, but wasn't as tough as it should be. To illustrate the point, he had a nice photo of the ground...taken through the gaping hole in the RamBox caused by a trailer hitch.

The majority of you agreed with Josh: This thing should be able to handle some serious use. Strangely enough, Dodge agreed too and covered the part under warranty. Trouble is, they A) wereon backorder and B) kept showing up to the dealer broken.

Just about 3-months later an in-tact RamBox showed up just when we needed service for our Ram.

We dropped the truck off at LaBrea Chrysler/Jeep around7:30 and they kept it overnight. We were given the option to pick it up at 18:45, but waited for the morning.

The service included an oil change, tire rotation and a service/fluid change on the differentials. Total cost: $63.00
