I thought that i would start a thread about parts & pieces that could be swapped out in the 4th Generation Ram 1500, 2500, 3500 series

Please feel free to make additions or corrections

2009 to 2017 Ram 1500 model are 1 year ahead of the 2500 - 3500 models, they would be 2010 - 2017 instead

4th Generation Rams with 4 wheels use the same beds, the only difference is the lengths
5' 7" , 6' 4" , 8'

All beds with 4 wheels use the same tailgate size & shape
The exception to this is that some of them have the word R A M instead of the Ram Head emblem

The grilles from 2009 - 2012 have a different shape then the 2013 - 2017
notice the lower corners of the grille & the upper corners of the emblem

2009 - 2012
2013 +

I didn't include the grill with the newer R A M designed into it

I measured the 4th Gen front doors of the Quad, Crew & Mega cabs yesterday
I measured at the crease just below the door handle, all of them measure at 44" front to back
I will assume that all the doors have the same height

I didn't have a Regular Cab to measure
Please add your measurement if you own one

2009 - 2012 models came with MYGIG Radios

MyGIG radios run on two different Bus systems, a low-speed computer Bus system (CAN-B)
Rams & some Jeep models ran high-speed computer Bus system (CAN-C).
MyGIG radios designed for a high-speed electrical bus will not work on a vehicle with a low-speed bus, and vice versa.

MyGIG radios manufactured by Harman Becker (HB) and Mitsubishi Electric (ME)

basic to best are:

RES 130 .. without Bluetooth
RES 130s .. with Bluetooth
RBZ 430 - without navigation, replaced REN 430
RHB 430 - Garmin Navigation
RER 730 - Navigation
RHR 730 - Navigation Radio

Ram radios in 2013 - 2017 were

RA1 3.0
RA2 5.0
RA3 8.4 non Navigation, but it could be added, it won't have all the features of ..
RA4 8.4 Navigation radio

These radios will interchange if you want to upgrade
The dash faceplate has to be changed when moving up from the RA2 to the RA3, because of the larger opening for the screen
You will need to install a GPS antenna, if your vehicle does not currently have it

You may have to have a Dealer Flash the new radio so it can talk to the computer through the CanBus C network

I think tailgates are the same across the board for all 4th gens, the only difference with the duallies would be the bedsides

-Rear bumpers 1500-3500 are bolt on 2009-2018. (dual cutouts and parking sensors, chrome and painted)

-Headlights and tail lights 2009-2018 physically bolt on (wiring changes 2013+ and LED vs. Halogen)

-CHMSL interchanges 2009-2018 (bed cam option and wiring 2014?+)

-Beds interchange 1500-3500, 2009-2018 (same length for length of course)

Can you please tell me if the rear power slide window from a 2014 2500 will fit my 2012 1500?
They're the same.

I don't think you'll be able to remove it without breaking it if its mounted already though

I have regular tail lights in my 2013 Ram and was wanting to switch to the Led tail lights. Can I swap my regular tail lights with the factory led tail lights and factory led 3rd brake light with out altering the harness?

You'll need an adapter. Retroshop sells a pair for $135

You can install 4th Gen Seats in a 3rd Gen Ram
The cab holes are the same, 1 bracket has to be turned 90 degrees

The video didn't mention the electrical connectors

Hi all, I have a 2016 ram bighorn quad.

I am wondering which hoods are compatible and I want to upgrade to a sport hood.

As well I want to upgrade bumpers to have sensors ... so bumpers and sensors.


Lastly, which tpms are compatible?

Thanks so much!

Anyone tried to change the Interior from early 4th gens to the newer ones? The hardware looks like it would fit, but im thinking about the electric connections and the uconnect. Anyone tried or seen someone else do it?
