Your Ram truck is your faithful companion that helps you work hard every day here in Dixon. To make your truck even more versatile, you can add some great accessories from Mopar®. These are some of our favorite accessories that we think can add a lot of value to your truck.
If you frequently carry large items that extend past the end of your truck bed, a bed extender can help. It comes with strong bars that keep cargo secure and you can even flip it inward to keep cargo from sliding.
A strong bed liner can protect your truck’s bed from scratches and dents, and prolong its life. Some bed liners even offer additional skid resistance to keep your cargo from sliding while you drive.
All-weather floor mats
With a set of all-weather floor mats, you can prevent dirt and other debris from collecting in your truck’s carpeting. These floor mats also make cleaning up easy since you can remove them and hose them down.
You can keep your cargo contained with a cargo divider in your bed. It fits snugly into the utility rails and is easily adjustable.
Keep all your tools on-hand with a lockable, durable toolbox mounted into your truck bed. No more tools sliding around and making loud noises while you drive!
If you’d like to order any of these accessories or want to know more about what you can add to your Ram truck, contact our team at Ken Nelson CDJR.
A new piece of technology is coming to the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX. The Know & Go mobile app is set to make leaning about your vehicle easier than ever. Read on to learn more about this exciting new tech.
Employees working at FCA developed and proposed the Know & Go mobile app back in June. The app’s technology uses the camera in your smartphone to scan and analyze images of your vehicle.

Additionally, the app features push notifications of undiscovered features, component information, owner’s manual pages, how-to videos, and much more.
The first vehicle to launch with Know & Go compatibility will be the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX.
“With all of the content on the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX, the Know & Go mobile app highlights the many new features and capabilities our customers will enjoy in a creative, exciting and engaging way,” said the app’s co-creator, FCA’s Propulsion Systems Program Manager, Mimi Nguyen.
