Air Design USA introduces its off-road series body kit for the 2019 RAM 1500, complete with Front Bumper Guard, DRL Roof Pods, Fender Flares, Rocker Panels, Door Moldings, Hood Scoop, Rear Tailgate Spoiler and Appliqué. Each piece is precision-engineered as part of a sophisticated digital workflow that includes 3D CAD modeling and full-scale CAM and CNC prototyping for a custom-crafted fit. Furthermore, it is backed by Air Design USA’s longstanding history of continued innovation, superior design, and easy installation.

Named Motor Trend Truck of the Year, the newest version of RAM 1500 “seems poised to meet the needs of the 21st century truck buyer, with more variety, capability, comfort, convenience, and value than ever before,” says Motor Trend. “The 2019 RAM 1500’s clean-sheet redesign throws out many of the design cues we’ve come to expect from a RAM pickup—while still being unmistakably RAM.”

Thanks to powertrain innovations, RAM was “freed from the obligation (and expense) of chasing maximum payload and towing capacities with all-aluminum construction,” explains Motor Trend. This allowed the design team to adopt a new high-strength steel chassis that incorporates lighter metals, offering roughly 4.0 inches more length and 17 percent less weight than its predecessor. RAM trimmed the fat in package offerings as well, cutting back from 10 to six: Tradesman, Limited Big Horn, Lonestar Laramie, Laramie, Longhorn, and the Rebel. Under the hood, customers will find the standard 3.6L Pentastar V6, now upgraded with an all-new eTorque system, hitting a respectable 305 horsepower and 296 lb-ft of torque, or the renowned 5.7L HEMI V8 producing 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, and delivering a towing capacity of up to 12,750 pounds when equipped with the performance-enhancing eTorque Mild Hybrid System.

“From its powertrain and towing capacity to trim packages and lush interior, truck enthusiasts won’t be disappointed when getting behind the wheel of the new RAM—guaranteed,” says Billy Longfellow, VP of Design and Engineering at Air Design USA. “This pickup is an absolute pleasure to drive. I actually preferred it over some other top choices, which made it even more of a joy for me to help design the perfect aftermarket body kit to best complement all the great performance and styling features that RAM nailed right out of the gate,” he adds. “As one of the top three selling trucks across America, this is a kit that aftermarket shops want to have in stock to wow their customers on the spot.”
