In addition to performance and style parts and accessories for Ram trucks, there are also a few different mods that add convenience or extra protection to your Ram truck. Here is a quick list of a couple modifications and parts that can be installed by our awesome service team here at Miami Lakes Auto Mall.

Safety and Extra Protection

Ram trucks are already safe trucks as they have a four-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA. In addition to being built with a strong and durable frame, all Ram trucks are equipped with a variety of standard safety features. However, for those that push their truck to the limits, whether at a construction site, off-roading or working on a farm or a ranch, there are a few parts that will help protect your truck from accidents, dents and dings.

Grille Guard

A grille guard looks cool and functions to protect your truck’s grille and headlights. This is a great feature for those who take their truck off-road. Off-roading is great fun but can also be dangerous, especially in a woodsy area or at night. The grille guard is a very sturdy cage-like feature that covers the front of the truck to protect it from brush, deer, debris, and so on.

Generally, the product comes in just a flat black color, but it is always possible to paint it to add style to your truck. There are several materials used to make grille guards including steel, carbon fiber and or aluminum. The grille guards protect your truck, but also make it look tough. So, why not get a grille guard to protect you and your vehicle just in case? (more…)

Though Ram trucks are well-equipped and impressive trucks, there’s no doubt some drivers like to add a little pizazz to make their truck different than anyone else’s. So if you want to modify your Ram truck with extra style or performance parts, here are some of the top mods for your Ram truck.

Performance

There are two main reasons people add performance parts to their Ram truck — to enhance the truck’s off-road capabilities or to increase speed or power. A few of the most popular performance parts include air intake systems, suspension systems and special wheels. While gear heads may feel comfortable changing out these parts on their own, many people will need a mechanic to add the parts to the truck.

Air Intake

Air intake kits or parts can be bought by several after market brands including Mopar, the service, parts and customer-care brand of Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA). Air intake systems, like a high-flow cold air intake, increase the performance of a vehicle and make it sound even better than before. When you replace the stock air intake with a new larger one, additional air is directly forced into the engine and that additional air into the engine increases horsepower, fuel efficiency and torque.

Suspension

Adding to the suspension of your Ram is another popular mod people do to their Ram trucks. There are many mods that can make your truck higher increasing its off-road capability. Consider lifting your truck to provide for greater ground clearance and less chance of getting stuck on logs or rocks. Plus, lifting your truck makes it look pretty sweet too! (more…)
