Toyota guy looking at Ram...

...and very impressed by the test drive I took. I joined up here hoping to get more info before making a decision, and hopefully some answers to accessory questions I've been struggling with.

First,greetings from New Mexico.

Basically been using the Tundra mainly for runs to the landfill, and occasionally trips to town (Albuquerque) to get lumber for various projects in my shop and around the house.

My wife and I both have smaller SUVs, and I love my BMW X3, but I never drive the darn thing, (we're retired) so I'm thinking of getting a nice upscale Ram with all the tech goodies, because we like to travel, and we like to be able to haul Kayaks, Bicycles, and our dog with us. Traveling in her car is just a bit crowded for all that. So I'm thinking of trading in the BMW and the Tundra.

I've pretty much figured out everything I want, but the build site is a little confusing, and if you add this, you can't have that etc. I can work that out with my sales guy, I'm sure.

My biggest question: Is there any way to have the RamBoxes, a locking tonneau cover, AND a Kayak/ladder rack all at the same time. I've spent the last two days exploring options, and haven't found the answer I want, at least not yet. Seems I can go with any two, but not all three.

Any suggestions?

Thanks to you both for your responses.

There is a rack that is made to work with the Ramboxes. It attaches to the cargo rails. It uses the top channel, leaving the side channel open, so I'm looking at tonneaus that can hook into the side channels.

Here's the link to that rack--

It's only rated at 150 lbs, but I only need it for two Kayaks. The height is adjustable and it looks pretty good. Plus, it's easy to remove when not traveling with our toys. Now, to find the perfect tonneau cover.
