Default Aftermarket parts for 4th gen, are they all the same???

Please bare with me in my ignorance about this topic. Although my new 2012 Ram 1500 is state of the art, my Internet is slow and makes searching for specifics rather time consuming and aggrivating. I am new to Ram trucks like "new" as in I know my way around vehicles very well and I am very capable of working on cars in general but, I have very limited knowledge about Dodge products. I just bought this new truck 3 days ago and I'm very excited to learn about what is out there in the aftermarket world for them... My problem is that one of my favorite websites (stylintrucks.com) does not seem to have much of anything that seems to be vehicle specific for the 2012... In fact when looking at interior parts, it showed me a Chevy bowtie rear view mirror because it is "universal fit".... I understand that maybe websites have not had a chance to determine 2012 parts fitment but I'm sure you guys have. So with that being said, are the 2009 and up trucks basically the same???... Can I buy a K&N cold air intake kit for a 2009 and it will work on my 2012???... what about floor mats, are they the same from 2009-2012???.... Just looking for someone to give me some basic guidelines about what has changed since 2009-2012... I understand that 2012 is the first year for the 6 speed auto (I think) but I'm not looking for anything transmission related.... Mostly engine performance and interior stuff is what I'm interested in. Any help or general pointers for a new guy would be greatly appriciated... Yes, I know how to use the search feature of this site but as I stated, my Internet sucks and it's frustrating to wait on 50 pages a night to load up just to learn that I still don't know much of anything... I'm thirsting for knowledge guys so please give me a hand.

The only things that changed from 2009 to 2012 is the badging for 'hemi' the EVIC layout and the 6speed auto. Body accessories should all be universal. congrats on the new truck, would live to see you post some pics.

There are some minor interior differences from '09 to'12.
Specifically, the headrests on the rear seats.

i suggest that you might look at CARID website for ideas, they carry several exterior parts that many of the other sites also carry, the site just works faster

If you know what you are looking for, members will help you all they can, like pointing you to a direct link, without you having to search & search

By the way, you ought to watch the project about the Ram EXPRESS, loads of ideas for you
