2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Glad It Has a Sliding Rear Window
May 29, 2014
The sliding rear window on pickups is an often forgotten piece of utility. Most people think that having a truck bed means always having more than enough room to haul things. But that's not always the case, especially with the shorter beds that are so common on extended cab and crew cab trucks.
Buy a decently sized piece of lumber or even just a long length of sprinkler pipe and you're going to have to lash them to the roof without a sliding rear window. Thankfully, our 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel had that option so when I recently picked up a 16-foot piece of baseboard it was easy to slide into the cab and hold onto it. Couldn't have done that in our Silverado as we forgot to check that option when we bought it. Don't make that same mistake if you can help it.
