Following is a sampling of the many Mopar accessories that will be available for the all-new 2009 Dodge Ram:

Chrome Tubular Side Steps: These 5-inch steps feature black molded end caps, slip-resistant step pads and heavy-duty, drill-free mounting brackets. Also available in black

Decal Packages:  Whether it’s sporty, off-road or performance, decal packages make the Ram reflect the personality of its owner

Trailer Tow Mirrors: These mirrors feature convex spotter glass and are wider and configured for increased visibility when towing large objects.

The cover raises with the help of two gas-assisted dampers and features a built-in tailgate lock for added security. Also available: Soft Tonneau Cover, Soft Tri-fold Tonneau Cover and Hard Folding Tonneau Cover

Pickup Box Utility Rails: To make the most of the truck’s bed, this sliding rail system accommodates Sport Utility Bars that lock into the lengthwise utility rails. Rather than stretch bungee cords to fixed points across the truck to tie something down, just slide adjustable cleats

Sport Utility Bars: Built of heavy-duty silver anodized aluminum, these beefy bars feature T-slots that allow for quick carrier installation. These bars attach to the pickup box utility rails and allow for bike carriers, ski carriers or cargo basket

Bed Liners: Skid Resistor bedliners ribbed construction helps keep cargo from shifting and eases water drainage from bed. The liner is molded of a high-density polyethylene blend for added durability

Bed Mat & Rug: Whether it’s the nylon-reinforced rubber mat or foam-backed rug, these bed protectors help keep the Ram looking new

Bed Lighting: These energy-efficient LED tubes mount easily to the underside of the left and right side of the bed rails, illuminating the bed to make loading and unloading easier in the dark

Tailgate Lock: This easily-installed remote keyless lock keeps the contents of the bed secure while working with the existing key fob. Ideal for all tonneau cover applications

Chrome Fuel Door: Uniquely sculpted one-piece design brightly complements every body color and replaces the existing fuel door with a seamless fit

Appliques: Adds a little extra personalization to the truck’s interior. These Fusion Graphite/Black appliqués adhere to door trim or center-stack bezel

70 Years of Mopar
When Chrysler bought Dodge in 1928, the need for a dedicated parts manufacturer, supplier and distribution system to support the growing enterprise led to the formation of the Chrysler Motor Parts Corporation (CMPC) in 1929.

Originally used in the 1920s, Mopar (a simple contraction of the words MOtor and PARts) was trademarked for a line of antifreeze products in 1937. It was also widely used as a moniker for the CMPC. The Mopar brand made its mark in the 1960s – the muscle car era. The Chrysler Corporation built race-ready Dodge and Plymouth “package cars” equipped with special high-performance parts. Mopar carried a line of “Special Parts” for super stock drag racers and developed its racing parts division, which was called Mopar Performance Parts to enhance speed and handling for both road and racing use.

Today, Chrysler LLC’s Global Service & Parts division is responsible for the manufacturing and distribution of nearly 250,000 authentic Mopar replacement parts, components and accessories for Chrysler, Jeep® and Dodge vehicles sold around the world. To assure quality, reliability and durability, all Mopar parts and accessories are designed in strict adherence to Chrysler engineering standards.
