Default Roof Strength Evaluations

iihs rollover test data... unfortunately the Ram doesn't fair so well compared to the competition. Hopefully they work on this on the next generation.

I was just waiting for the first snow to flip my truck over and use it as a toboggan. Now I don't feel safe doing that.

Ram's are lemons!

Interesting but I'm not too worried, knock on wood but I usually do my best to keep it shiny side up.

this really has nothing to do with the overall strength of the roof support. but more just the sheet metal up there...my ram is SO FLIMSY. I get up on the bed to wash the roof and just with my hand I feel like i'm going to fall through the cab. My ford you could get up and walk around on and it would hardly budge. People at concerts are always getting on the roof of the truck dancing and carrying on...my ram would NEVER be able to support that. not that I want it to...just an observation though
