Installed the RamBar over my Retrax cover and added front and rear lights.

Before and after pics of my truck.

Added Retrax cover under the newer Rambar design with the side mounted bolts which make it fit perfectly with the cover.

The front lights are MOPAR with the outer two on AUX switch 1 and the inner two on AUX switch 2.
The rear light is a 24 X 1 light bar on AUX switch 3.
They are very bright but you definitely have to close the sunroof cover or you will be blinded.

The fire extinguisher holder is a DV8 that I had on my Jeep TJ for rock crawling. I used it once in an emergency so I decided to put one on.

How are the forward facing rack lights in the dark? Do they shine beyond the hood? Any glare off the hood? Great looking truck!

I was worried about them being so far back on the cab but they match perfectly beyond the headlights and the outer two are angled slight off to each side so the range of light is very good. The back is a bar and the bed creates a shadow but the back up lights handle most of that. I only use the rear light for picking up camp on the beach so it will serve it's purpose.

Using the JustBoltOns link which is where I bought it. See Johnny@JustBoltOns above if you need more help. They were great.


The light bar is a Quadratec branded light (not sure who makes it). I dealt with them for years with my Jeeps and they give me a pretty steep discount so I just ordered from them.

Glad you had better luck than I did. The dealership here are morons and after 6 months of waiting on lights, they had no clue how to install them to the AUX switches, only ordered two out of the four, and couldn’t find the box where the AUX switches are until I showed them in pictures. What a train wreck these idiots are. Glad you got good service everything looks great.

I measured today at ~2.5"

EDIT: 2.5" brackets didn't work...trying 2.375" or 2.25" and will report back.

Does the Ram Bar have to have holes in the top of the bed rail???? Mine is coming with one (dealer order I lucked into) and this will be a deal breaker for me as I will be removing it.

Do you mean mounting holes? Mine has three bolts on the top rail, one on the rear side, and two for the stake pocket (and they cut out the stake pocket to insert the Ram Bar). Replacement bed rails are around $60, I believe.

Yes the mounting holes. Do not want holes in the tops of the bed rail where the Ram Bar comes out. I guess I am not understanding how replacement bed rails are $60.00. I thought they were the actual top painted portion of the metal that makes up the top of the side of the bed.
