#1 of 332 Advice on running boards / bed covers
Mar 22, 2002 (1:22 pm)
Anyone out there with an '02 Quad have information on the best looking / best price on nerf bars / running boards and tonneau covers?
#2 of 332 Nerf Bar for '02 Quad
Mar 23, 2002 (6:34 pm)
My personal opinion is the Westin Platinum Stainless Steel Nerf Bars. They have a lifetime guaranty and got them on Sale at the ATV store in Long Island for $425.00. They dress up the Mayor very nice.

I had them on my 2000 Dakota Quad and now have the same on my new Ram Quad. An ARE Tonneau cover and Starboards Running boards all top of the line.. For a look at Starboards go to www.Starboards.com
#4 of 332 Rear brake modifications for 2001 and older Rams
Mar 25, 2002 (6:49 pm)
I have a 2001 Ram 1500 4x4 Quad Cab with rear drum brakes. Needless to say, they suck and don't stay adjusted for more than a couple weeks at a time. By 28,000 miles I already went through one set of front pads and the rear shoes still looked new. I remember reading a little over a year ago about a conversion kit to change the rear brakes to disc brakes but I can't find the info now. Does anyone out there know anything about it or where to find the info? Thanks
#5 of 332 Aftermarket parts...
Mar 27, 2002 (8:12 am)
You guys might think about checking out Mopar.com. Enter the info for our truck model and all these nice items appear. I think it's mostly the accessory catalog on-line, but the prices are a bit better than what they offer in that hand-out I'm sure you got when you bought your new friend. Prices are about 10% less.
If you remember back, I mentioned a Mopar magazine in which a new Quad owner had tricked out his truck, adding hp (up to 350hp on a 4.7), handling goodies, and I think a nice bed cover. Check it out.
#6 of 332 cd changer location?
Apr 15, 2002 (10:22 am)
Can someone with a cd changer in their '02 Quad tell me where this bad boy is mounted? I just got an aftermarket CD changer and would like to install it in the exact spot that the factory uses. Any info appreciated.

Magilla, which brand of CD changer did your buy? I need to purchase one but haven't had the time to do any research. Mopar.com states that their changer mounts behind the back seat or under the driver's seat, hope this helps.
#8 of 332 brnzbk...cd changer
Apr 23, 2002 (8:38 am)
I bought a USA Spec that Crutchfield said would hook right up to the factory cassette stereo. I don't know this for fact, but my guess is that the one sold by Mopar.com and in the dealership is a USA Spec model, rebadged. Both 6-cd changers, and the specs are pretty much identical. I bought mine from a guy that sells on Ebay. It was new and I got it for MUCH less than Mopar's $345 price and the dealership's price of $380. Kind of leary of pulling my dash apart to find the plug. I'll call the dealership and ask them where the plug is. Should be pretty simple. I'll let you know how it performs once I get it in. Still love my mayor!
Now looking for some step bars. Something durable and yet good looking.
#9 of 332 CD Changer
Apr 23, 2002 (9:54 am)
I called Crutchfield to order the USA Spec, and they ended up recommending the
Kenwood changer and an adapter to connect it to the factory radio. I went with
their suggestion, and the total cost with shipping came to about $280.00. The
installation was very simple. I put the changer under the drivers seat. The center
section of the dash (02 QC) comes off by just removing one screw and then
pulling the whole piece out. This exposes the 4 screws holding the radio in
place. Remove those screws, slide out the radio, plug the adapter cable into
a plug in the back of the radio, plug the cd changer cable into the adapter, and
reverse the disassembly process. Crutchfield actually included some very detailed
instructions, complete with pictures of the dash disassembly specific to the Ram,
so that made it very easy.

Anybody added tow hooks (front and rear) to the 02 Ram 1500? If so,
what kind, and where did you mount them? Thanks...
