By now, everyone knows the award-winning Ram 1500 is the proverbial who’s who of trucks on the market. Named Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year for an unprecedented 2 years in a row, the Ram 1500 is featured in countless articles, reports, and online reviews (including this blog!)—all of which tout its class-exclusive features and functionalities that make it the loveable beast on the road that is. But what people may not know about this vehicle is what it can do when it’s parked. Here are some non-driving uses of this special truck.
More food, please. Does food really taste better when you eat it outside? Around a campfire? Ram 1500 drivers can field test this theory—multiple times if necessary—by grilling a smorgasbord of food and serving it to a hungry group. Simply flip down the tailgate, pile up the food, and form a line. Watch as your group of friends, err scientists, try to prove/disprove this theory.
Turn it up. Whether you’re being outdoorsy, creating a smorgasbord (see above), or sitting by a campfire with a couple of friends, any activity instantly shoots up the fun scale when music is involved—especially when it’s delivered through crystal-clear Alpine speakers on your Ram 1500. Just don’t forget to fire up the engine now and then.
Premium seating for 2+. Nothing screams “summertime” more than fireworks. Unfortunately, it can be less than ideal to sit on the ground while watching said fireworks. So rather than fight the crowds for a slightly muddy, slightly questionable slice of dirt, why not claim premium seating on the back of your Ram 1500 in a nearby, ultra-convenient locale?
Look at that. When the summer sun sets, the Ram 1500 Dual Halo LED Projector Headlights illuminate any scene—be it tents that need built or a rousing neighborhood game of kickball that needs completed in its last inning.
Make your bed. How picturesque do warm nights, clear skies, and a million stars sounds? With the Ram 1500, you don’t have to picture them—you can actually experience them! Do yourself a favor and spend at least one night in the back of your Ram this summer. Sure you might need an air mattress or at least some comfy blankets, but the huge 8-foot bed is more than enough room to sleep comfortably under the stars.
