    Rebel questions

    Is the all black seats with tread pattern all cloth, or is it leather or vinyl trimmed?

    Is a rebel louder than a stock ram?

    Trying to figure this out before I go to the dealer tomorrow. Wife doesn't want a loud truck, and isn't fond of all cloth seats.

    Thanks guys!

    The Rebel has a cloth and vinyl mix. The vinyl feels like leather but its not. I really like it myself. The cloth part (Center area of each seat) has the imprint of the Toyo tires on it. Kind of a cool addition.

    The Rebel isn't any louder than a stock 1500 (in my experience). Its got the same exhust and hemi. If you start adding things...new muffler, tips, intake...of course its going to be louder...if you don't...should be just fine.

    One thing to note...the stock Rebel comes with a silver front skid plate and red trimmed seats and dash. The sides of the seats are red, the rest black. There is a "Dark" Option..something like $500 onto the MSRP that makes the seats all black and has a black front skid plate.

    Mine doesn't have the "Dark" option...but for some reason has the all black interior, with the silver skid plate. Just something to think about when you look around at RAM's.

    Good luck with your choice! I love the air suspension in mine and the off road tires really set it apart from regular RAM's. Its all personal choice...can't go wrong with a Rebel or a Sport or any other model...they're all RAM's at heart :)

    Thanks for the great reply! The one I'm looking at has the all black seats with the tire imprint still, but I couldn't tell by the pictures if it was all cloth. The window sticker didn't mention anything about it being cloth or vinyl.

    My wife was concerned the Rebel would be louder because she read two articles how the Rebel has "snorting" exhaust as they called it. I told her it'd be the same as a stock Ram, but she was weary.

    I'm ready to pull the trigger, but now she's getting cold feet lol. We'll see if I can convince her tomorrow!

    Only thing that will be louder are the tires.

    You said the sides of the seats are red, what about the backs? Just curious kuz I've been looking at rebels also and every single one has all black interior except one, which had black front then sides of seats AND back of seats were red as well as all red stitching instead of white... I thought it must've been some special edition but from what it sounded like what you said it's the base model? Lol, kuz man I LOVED that red

    The back of the seats are red also, the only part of my Rebel I hate are the seats. I like the red and black but hate the cloth in set.
