The big (or 'small' if you're in the US) and badass 2019 Ram 1500 can be had with a very handy feature: the RAMBOX. It ain't a cheap upgrade, but it really makes the most of the space available to the side of the tub by creating a locked and secure space for tools, special equipment, or a few ice-chilled cans for the weekend getaway...
