    Happy Father's Day gentlemen...

    All you fathers out there free yourself of those restraints (aka family concerns) and spend some of them kids' inheritance on yourself or your Ram. It is your day after all.

    Keyless entry keypad

    Thanks for the suggestion of "one of those arm band thingies". Need one on the other arm for my eye glasses so I can find and read the phone. I need a 17" laptop if I'm going to read without the glasses. :cry:

    Keyless entry keypad

    OEM Bed divider

    You need both, the rails from the cargo divider attach to the bed rails, I believe. Do some research prior to buying the cargo divider. I believe the cargo divider conflicts with some tonneau covers because of the way they attach on top of the cargo rails. I have seen some reselling of the...

    Need help picking tires...

    I tend to believe you need to put it some priority order based on my own past experience. In my case my wife's 2006 Honda Accord had too much road noise from the tires while a passenger. When it came time to replace the tires I purchased based on road noise reduction. The tires I did...
