The chrome is a match to the door handles. Mounting was easy, I might add some extra 3m tape on the bottom to get it tight to the mirror. I noticed it hangs just a bit low on the bottom. I got them from Autoanything great price and very fast shipping.

I'm been thinking about the chrome molding to try and avoid door dings in the paint.
I keep going back and forth on adding the molding to prevent door dings too. I'm at 4,500 miles in the two months I've had the truck and am not sure how much longer my luck will hold out.

Factory installed would have been nice, but I set a budget and the Big Horn was it. Given I now have the leather and a Max Care 0 deductible warranty paid for by Ram, I think I made out great.

I like your wheel inserts. I have three questions - 1. Were they difficult to install? 2. How durable do you think they will be? I live in northern Michigan. 3. What did they cost?

1) Not too bad, I use to pen stripe cars and build Radio Controlled Model planes so I've used these products before. The manufacture recommends doing it with a wet application, which makes it easier to get on, but takes a long time to dry out. I applied them dry and took my time, a few air bubbles happen so a needle to poke them is all that is needed.

2) Tough call, I lived in Maine so I know what you mean. Should be ok for awhile if you install them when it is hot and they have time to really get the adhesive set.

3) $18.95, I don't remember the shipping cost but this was pretty cheap and not a lot of investment. I have about 2,000 miles on them and they seem to be fine.

I'm happy to report that the Katzkin Heated Seats option works very well! It was a bit chilly this morning in northern Alabama so I switched the driver seat to max and was warmed up on bottom and back very quickly. Switching over to low kept me nice an toasty. Very glad I got this option with the Katzkin leather seats, it was one feature I have on my Mazda CZ-9 Touring that I really liked in the winter. And yes in northern Alabama we do get snow, it shuts down the city because we have no equipment to handle removal

Default I think this goes well with my Ram!



It is for my wife! She wanted a more practical 4 door sedan vs her 2 door Jeep. Originally she was all about a Hyundai, thank god I got her in this beast first.
