I'm going to get a new Ram 1500. Trying to decide if it is worth getting the rambox.

I do hunt in the fall so I thought it may come in handy. Just not sure it's worth getting. My old 2007 Ram is showing it's age. Time for a new one.
Loved my 2012 1500 Ram I had with Rambox. I did handyman work in retirement and it was a great place to carry tools, etc. I pull a 5th wheel now with a ‘21 2500 and still miss the Rambox.

Not to mention, way easier to wash out the bed of our Rambox bed than our prvious 2014 with regular bed where dirt and other debris kept getting trapped around the wheel wells. The non Rambox guys just have “Rambox envy”. :gr_grin:

I went through the same debate before trading trucks. Did a lot of reading and the boxes were either a love-it or leave-it item. I liked the basic idea of the rambox but was concerned about the longevity/fitment of the lids. Also went back-&-forth on the appearance. In the end, I felt staying with a small storage box in the bed was best for me.

""Worth getting" is subjective. Do you need bed space or storage space. I like the idea of the ram boxes but simply cannot live with the reduced bed space they offer for how I use my truck.

Guys with ram boxes are going to say they can't live without them. Guys without are going to say they can't live with it.

Look at what you think you will use YOUR truck for and make a decision on that

.
Now this is the most sensible answer that is going to come of this question. It is subjective to the owner PERIOD. Is it nice to have? I guess but I need all the spaxe the 6.4 bed can afford without losing what people say is just the depth of the wheel well. I personally collect firewood and LOAD the hell out of my truck. Cant store rounds in the ram boxes lol. But to make up for what they can nicely provide I have a 25gal rolling toolbox secured in the front of my bed strapped to the head wall, which contains straps, hitches, air compressor, battery cables, ect. I can remove when needed and use that space that cannot be recovered from the Rambox bed option.

No doubt is the Ram box a nice convenience to some who use their truck their way. Cleaning my NON- Ram box bed is as simple as can be, its a truck bed at the end of the day, park on grade, open tail gate. Wash out with soap and nice brush and rinse all out tail with hose . Done

I am happy I got the rambox when I ordered my truck. I use them all the time and I like not needing a toolbox in the bed like my past trucks have had. Also like not having anything in the way of a cover over the bed. If I have the choice, I will have the rambox in my next truck as well.
