FCA’s Mopar division definitely can pack on the modifications straight from the factory. Leading up to the heavy hitting release of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, the options available are running wild. Over the last thirty days, FCA has launched the debut of the redesigned 2019 Ram 2500, 3500, 4500 and 5500 Heavy Duty models. Last year, we had the redesigned 2019 Ram 1500 series, and to say the least, FCA has continued to stay busy in the design booth.
At the Chicago Auto Show this week, displayed is a Blue Streak 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Big Horn, highlighting more than 170 Mopar products available. Most of the parts shown, Mopar has ready to go with only a few exceptions that remain concepts. Mopar included the black powder-coated “Ram Bar” in the bed with five 5-inch LED lights, giving it the old light bar vibe with a new age appearance. The lights are controlled by a switch box located in the cab. Other Mopar products include the bed step, fender flares, rubber all-weather floor mats, and stainless steel door handles. Steve Beahm, Head of Mopar Parts and Services stated, “The Mopar-modified Ram 2500 Heavy Duty on display at the Chicago Auto Show is the latest example of our commitment to offering owners a full product line to choose from right at launch of FCA US LLC vehicles…Whether it’s for the trail, the street or the worksite, Mopar will have more than 170 parts and accessories that provide a path to enhanced capability for the new 2019 Ram Heavy Duty.”
The parts not currently available include, 17-inch bead-lock wheels with Goodyear tires. The rock rails, and bed mounted spare tire holder are not ready for the product lineup. Mopar plans to offer plenty of parts at the 2500’s launch to dealerships. Some of these include a trailer camera, gooseneck ball kit, fifth-wheel hitch, bed extender, cargo ramp, different toolboxes and more.
