Well I was able to check it out today and it's a NO GO... The covers for the challenger 5.7/392 use two connectors on each side. The Ram 5.7 uses one connector on each side and dual connector at the back. I just don't see anyway to make it work without having to rig something to the motor and possibly over modify the new covers to make them fit. The covers cost too much to chance messing them up for nothing. Sorry guys...

Yeah, no problem...

Right Cover 5038543AB
Left Cover 5038544AB

They should be right around $67 bucks a piece, I got my dealer down to $49 bucks a piece but I'm sure you can probably get them even cheaper. If not, speedlogix.com sells them for $45.88 a piece. I just didn't want to wait. Let me know if you figure something out.

Hey guys, I emailed 3G this afternoon and this is what I got in response!

I cannot confirm that. I have never tested it myself. I would guess they need to be modified. If you know anyone with a Ram in the middle GA area then we could knock out a set with ease.

The person with the car here would get a set for free.

Ya'll are way behind on the half cover game. I purchased the charger half covers from 3g and modified (had to trim and cut) to fit on our rams. I told them I did it and asked if they would like me to ship them back so they can have them for our 4th gens. and they said there wasn't enough interest. I am waiting for them to get painted and marble-ized (to match my vararam) but hopefully will have them back soon.

From the looks of it then, the Charger ones will work with trimming. Doesn't seem worth it to get any of the 3G cut-outs, wont be able to see em.

I still would like something that fits out of the box, I know other feel the same. I don't like having to buy $105 pieces I then have to cut up myself. Just my .02

Thanks for posting that the Charger covers fit with trimming. Dang near seems like you had to cut half of the one cover awway.

6.1 coil covers are not half bad either. Still have the hemi insignia when you shave off the ci. Maybe an option for you 4G'ers.

is it just me or do these ram covers just look cheap? some folded sheet metal. I really like the ones that js1977 has on his challenger with the black wrinkle finish and the raised silver fins. thats what I want!
