Default New Owner Dodge Ram Hemi 1500

Hi all... Just purchased my first Dodge Ram Hemi 1500 pickup Bighorn Edition. I've owned all of the other domestic trucks, but just couldn't pass on the great looks and ride of the Ram trucks for this purchase. 500 miles now and I'm totally pleased. I bought a end of year 2010 model and the inventory is getting low. I would liked to have gotten the premium sound system, but wasn't available on any the dealer had left.

So, I have a question. Looks like it would be a difficult and expensive change out to replace the speakers. What has been the experience of any of y'all?

What do any of you think of the A.R.E. LSII Tonneau Cover? I'm thinking of adding one.

Thanks for any feedback.

Hutch11

Welcome to the forum! I have no experience pulling spkrs from that generation truck but I'm sure someone who has will chime in soon.

A.R.E. makes pretty good stuff. Before you buy, talk to your dealer about the MOPAR accessory tonneau's, then decide.

Welcome to the Z. We have a forum just for audio questions and it has tons of info on folks' mods they've done to their sound systems.

We have a lot of forums for all kinds of topics, so you shouldn't have any problems finding a place to post questions.

We LOVE pics of Rams.

Here's how to post them: http://www.ramforumz.com/forumdisplay.php?f=73

Welcome to the forum! I am relatively new myself. You really will love your truck, they are a great machine! As for the speakers... I have not replaced mine, but I know they are fairly easy to swap. Just mind the size and also the mounting depth (on the front door speakers) when looking for aftermarket replacements. As for price, the sky is the limit! You can get some respectable mid-level replacements for less than $200 for the doors. No tonneau feeback here, I have a slim-line toolbox, someone else will have to chime in on that one. Good luck!
