Default Power Ram Boxes?

I know that they have released a power tailgate lock for our 2012 Rams, but have the released a kit to make the Ram Boxes power. It would be nice to have as sometimes its a PITA to undo the key from the fob to unlock the boxes.
thanks for the help in advance

I'm watching this too.

I believe the 2013 models have locking RamBox compartments off the OEM keyfob.

I just need a part number as I'm all but certain it'll work for us 2012 owners....

Power raising is what I thought you were originally asking about. Like automatic opening....that would need a servo or mini-hydraulic piston and small pump.

I hoped they had the auto-locks too.

power rambox locks would be awesome....i agree it is a pain in the ass to have to pull the key out of the fob to unlock them, especially now when its colder and i have gloves on

if the kit is outrageously expensive, i'm sure it could be done with some universal power lock servos and a little ingenuity

A linear actuator or the type would do the job. If you find someone willing to take the experimental plunge, let us know.

i went by a dealer today and asked if they had released a part #. the guy in parts looked as if i had just asked for a ride to atlantis. after talking to him for a while and explaining what i was looking for he told me to go talk to sales and ask to look at a 2013 with ram boxes. the salesman was no help and just gave me the sales number of the one 2013 they had on the lot with ramboxes and told me parts can look up anything with that. so back to parts i went and still got the puzzled look so he said lets go look at the truck itself. truck is one of the owners demos so it wasnt on the lot so he went and talked to a service tech who said it wasnt possible "yet". he then gave me a number to dodge and said call them. called them and after a 15 min conversation he said it wasnt available "yet" but i "may" be coming soon.

long story short who knows when or how but i may be a available soon

It is a bit off subject, but
do your Ram Boxes leak during heavy rain, or did they finally fix that issue for the 2012s
