    For those of us with the generic tradesman door panels, I was looking for a touch of chrome to accent the otherwise plain panels. Came across these on ebay. They are about $10 each. Just something to try if you would like a little upgrade but don't want to spend the money on premium door panels.

    Looks very nice, and does add to the look, for sure. When I got my Ram last year, a pretty basic black bumper Tradesman, it did come with the "premium" door panels, and I didn't even know what the difference was between them and standard. In fact most on the lot had that package. I now see they don't give you ANY side pockets with the standard panel, and it doesn't have the silver trim piece. Amazing what they'll do to squeeze a extra few bucks out of us. I mean it wouldn't cost them a dime to have the standard panel molded have at least a bottom side pocket. Marketing...

    Tap4154, I failed to mention my pictures are from the quad cab truck. The back doors on the crew cabs do have pockets on the bottom of the door panel. My front doors also have pockets and the place for the drink cup holders just like on the premium door panels. Mopar wants $25 each for the drink cup holders if I wanted to add them. LOL.
