Hemi1500 is on a distinguished road
Default What trim level is this truck?

OK, I was told by someone who apparently is not very knowlegdable that my truck is an SLT "Express" simply because it did not come with a bed liner (found out that a spray-in liner was a factory option in 2011). However I see many SLT and Big Horn alike without liners, and I'm calling B.S. So, here's my question:

This truck looks like a BH in that is has the fully chromed grille, fog lamps, quad headlamps, chrome bumpers & door handles, 20" wheels, leather wrapped steering wheel, chrome tipped dual exhaust, etc... However, there are 3 notable omissions: No side steps, no tow hooks, and no Big Horn badge. So, what the heck is it?? An SLT optioned to look like a BH? Are any of these options available only as part of the BH package? Is there any way I can find out by the VIN?

Sorry for so many questions, this is a mystery...

Yeah you can look it up by the vin or call a ram dealer and have them look it up for you by the vin hope that helps. Good luck

Big horns are an option on SLT trucks anyway. It will not be an express since they have the color matched bumper.

Tow hooks, skid plates are an option at most trim levels as the protection group.
Side steps are also an option at pretty much every trim level.

Liner is an option. Has nothing to do with trim level

The mystery has been solved... I don't know how I missed this before, but a new forum search found the website: http://www.ramtrucks.com/webselfservice/ram/index.html. Plugged in my VIN and instantly downloaded the build sheet. My truck does indeed have the Big Horn Regional Package. So the previous owner de-badged it for some reason.

Thanks for the quick responses!

Ok. Why would you want to de-badge the BigHorn?

And My Big Horn did not have side steps (I added) does not have a bed liner (getting soon) and also no tow hooks.

Although, I have a lot of options on my particular truck, those 3 did not come with...

Coming from a Challenger R/T and a Charger Daytona before that, I wouldn't settle for anything less than a Hemi!

As far as why anyone would de-badge a Big Horn, I dunno, maybe they found the name offensive in some way...
