The redesigned 2009 Dodge Ram will offer as an option the "Ram Box," a set of lockable storage compartments built into the rear fenders.
The storage compartments are made of some sort of tough plastic. A drain hole is included, so you could fill the Ram Box with ice and drinks for your next outing.
The fender compartment is large enough for a set of golf clubs. To make room, the inside of the truck bed is narrowed to the width of the wheel wells.
It appears that the Ram Box would not work with a bed cap/camper shell. Still, it's nice to see a little bit of new thinking in the pickup market.
