    Hey guys I was wondering if anyone knows if the Tesla style radio kits would be available in the older 4th gens. I have a 2011 2500 mega cab. It already has the factory Alpine system with the RHB uConnect with navigation. But I really like the look of the Tesla style head unit.

    I just noticed that they have it available for the older Rams! Is there anyone who has done this yet? In wondering if the things like hazard, light load, AC, tow haul, etc, are still functional through the head unit? They do have a pic of my older style auto HVAC with the Tesla style head unit, but those switches I mentioned above are no longer on the dash...

    Very curious about this upgrade also!
    It’s odd they do not mention anything about speaker output, since it is a radio! If they do I didn’t see it. Subwoofer output, watts per channel, etc....

    Who’s gonna be the first to try this out!?!?

    Sure hope someone does. I ended up going with the Alpine Halo 9".
    Selling my old U-Connect / Sirius system if anyone's interested. Brand new map update disc, unopened and ready to install.
    Cheers!

    Check out this video from Phoenix on Youtube on the 2009-2012 Ram (with 2 front seats) with the 12.1" Tesla Style stereo, it looks like the row of buttons with the hazards is relocated to the top (upward facing) surface of the bezel, the HVAC controls are relocated at the bottom of the main bezel and any other switches are accounted for in the stereo itself.

    I watched a bunch of YouTube videos of a guy who put this radio on his Raptor. He seemed pretty happy with it! Most of the talk on the forums were good as well.
    I’d really consider putting one in my 2012 Ram, but I’m on the same tank of gas going on 8 weeks. I just don’t drive it enough to to justify it right now.
