Default Rambox question

Hey guys new to forum and I'm going to be buying my first ram. Getting a 2014 with 3L Diesel.

Was wondering does anyone make a cap that fits with the ram box? I like the ram box but Will likely need a cap for when we put the dogs in their crates in the back.

just read another thread on this. seems that people with the ram box find the only downside isthat there are no caps for trucks with the rambox. depending on what kind of dogs you have, maybe some of those crates hunters use for their dogs would work for you.

They're dobermans. So they use some pretty big crates. Plus in the winter without a cap they would likely find it cold...

Most caps are made with fiberglass no? I wonder if one can be modified to fit with the ram box.

The dogs in the back of the truck is one of the reason why she'll let me get one!

There are a number of companies making a cap for the Ram storage box equipped trucks.

I have one on order but after consideration, have decided that all the gear I have will fit into the boxes. I won't need the expense and trouble of a cover.

One premium example for the Ram storage box truck is:


Tuxedo Lo Pro QT Soft Roll Up Part No. 544901
  • The fold ups are a nuisance and prevent about 40% of your box from access. If you fold them up, they block your rear view. The aluminum roll ups are way too expensive. The fabric roll ups are the only IMO choice if you must have a cover.

Ya I've seen those but I mean more of a leer cap style. I can't fit a dog crate in that.

Mopar44: Ha Ha....I was just thinking about that exact same thing while taking my evening walk before. I was visualizing how the truck would look with the narrowed cap and the storage boxes sticking out. I also thought about how small the capacity would be making the cap kind of a waste unless you carried some kind of tall item that needed security or weather protection.

I don't think a cap can be fitted to the cargo box since the Ram storage lids impinge on the cargo box space when they open.

I have had a number of caps on various pick ups. I seem to always find that what I needed had somehow migrated to the very front of the box. This required me to crawl on hands and knees inside the cap to retrieve the tool I needed. No thanks. Never again with a conventional cap. I have seen really neat caps that have raised roof lines man sized rear center door to walk in and retrieve whatever you need. That is the only cap style I could ever see using. Only the young guys in their 20's can crawl around on their knees with the standard caps. But it is a moot subject with the Ram Box equipped trucks.

Photo below has BackFlip 26207RB tri fold cover folded up as far as it will go.

How do you expect a cap to work with the Rambox storage compartments still being functional?

I don't know. Maybe if they had a cut out or ident in and around the ram box.

Im sure it could be done.
