John E Davies Posted January 30, 2021 Share Posted January 30, 2021 (edited) This is about a $1000 option, it seems like it could be quite useful. If you have one, do you like it, and when do you open them sideways? How about the optional center step? Worth it? It is only for the 1500 but I would be very surprised if it were not a HD option soon, depending on sales numbers I suppose. I could see carrying a generator on the right side, mounted on a slide out tray. Pull out the slide, close the opposite door, close and lock the canopy hatch. Run the generator while the bed contents are hidden and mostly locked up. Neat. Downsides are initial expense, extra weight reduces payload, future maintenance issues, theft risk, repair cost. Do the advantges outweigh the negatives? There is already a big tailgate recall for late model Rams, for the standard gate latch breaking and allowing stuff to fall out on the highway. This gate would most likely be harder to keep “running” correctly. Comments?
