    If you’re using a bed like a trunk, you’ll be using a tonneau cover.

    It is easier to seal the bed without the Rambox versus seal the bed with the Rambox

    If you’re planning on using the bed as a trunk, don’t opt for the Ram-boxes. Instead, look into the Decked in-bed storage solution and a nice locking cover. The cost would likely be the same and you’ll have more bed real estate.

    I have a cover and Ram boxes. All is great except for a small drip sometimes at the tailgate. FYI Truxedo roll-up

    Can you lock that one? How secure is it in preventing theft?

    Same here - though I have a Bakflip MX-4. I get very minor tailgate leakage.

    Thanks to all so far! My plan has been to get the Ram Boxes and get the Bakflip MX4 ... I think you guys are helping me stay with that plan. I do know I would find a way to use them and would enjoy them. Last week I saw them in person for the first time and it made the bed look a lot smaller although I know it's just from the wheel wells out. I think i was just surprised to see how much smaller it SEEMED in person ... although i know it's not that much different.

    I've got Ramboxes on my '19, along with a Retrax tonneau cover. I LOVE the boxes! I have stuff in mine pretty much permanently--ratchet straps, some tools, and assorted other stuff in the passenger side box and daily stuff in the driver's side. They also work great as coolers for tailgating--none of that going on this year, but last summer we went to 5 concerts and used the boxes as coolers while tailgating. Easily fit the 24 pack we took with us along with the burgers and dogs.

    I'm your stereotypical suburban dad and I've never felt a desire for having the extra side storage of a non-Rambox bed when doing Home Depot runs and regular errands. We do fully load the bed when we go on long roadtrips (stroller and approximately 73,291,099 lbs of kid stuff), but I've never run out of room.

    I'll be sizing up to a 2500 in a year or two--Ramboxes are at the top of my list for that truck. As long as I have a truck, I will only have Ramboxes, I just find them too darn useful to go without.

    For some reason I didn't think there was a rambox-compatible bakflip. That's nice, gotta get one.
