Well, it's safe to say this is an easy one. If you own a quad or crew cab RAM 1500, and you want to add a little bit of flair to the side of your truck using some chrome, you've definitely found it. These chrome body side moldings are made of automotive grade ABS and they are triple-chrome plated, so they do match any chrome already existing on your truck. You can see a pretty clear example right here, thanks to the RAM 1500 logo. These install very easily. I would go ahead and say this is probably the easiest install you could do on your truck, if you even want to call it that, thanks to the pre-applied 3M automotive tape on the rear side. So if you like the way these look, stick around, I'm going to show you guys how to get these lined up and installed. It shouldn't take you more then ten to fifteen minutes. So, like I said, installing these is probably the easiest thing you can do to your truck. These have 3M automotive tape pre-applied to them, so really, all you got to do is make sure that your doors are nice and clean, free of any debris, any dirt, so that the 3M can adhere appropriately. So go ahead and peel off the backing on each of the pieces of tape and then you're gonna line the piece up with the crease on the door right here, make sure everything's level, make sure it's spaced correctly, and then you're just gonna press down to apply it. You're gonna do the same thing for the rear once you have the front piece all pressed in place. All right, so once you have both sides applied to your truck, you want to let these sit for at least an hour or two before you go on a drive, and I would let these cure for at least 24 hours before running them through the wash. Other than that, that actually wraps up my review and really quick install of the chrome body side moldings fitting your own '09 to '18 quad and crew cab RAM 1500. I'm Travis, thanks for watching, and be sure to keep it right here at americantrucks.com.

Looks Good, Perfect Fit
Placing a phone order was painless, and the advice was helpful. Delivery was quick and the item arrived in perfect shape. The chrom molding looks very good on my grey color ram, it's also noticable due to the 2 inch width. If the quality of the material and the chrom are as it says, and will last a long time, I will be happy. Installation was very quick and simple, thanks to the online video.Helpful (4)

Poor Fit for 2016 Ram Truck Quad Cab
The 26 inch rear door body molding is too short by about 5 inches for the 2016 Ram Truck Quad Cab. The front door molding fit fine. The picture shown on the American Trucks website is misleading because it does not show the full length of the rear door with molding installed; if it did you could see that it is too short by about 4 to 5 inches, depending upon how high up on the door the molding is installed. The rear door installation looks odd. Even the installation instructions that came with this product state that the molding should be installed 'no more than 2 inches' from the edge of the doors for correct function and appearance. When I asked American Trucks if I could swap my unopened package of 26 inch rear trim for another one at 31 inches, they informed me that they could not do that as they only sold the packages in 'sets' for the various truck models. After a lot of discussion, they finally offered to let me return the entire set but since I had already installed the front molding (which looked fine), I had to just go ahead and complete the installation. I was concerned that if I tried to remove the front moldings to return them that I might remove some paint as well. I think American Trucks could do a couple of things to resolve this situation in the future: 1) get rid of the misleading picture that truncates the view of the rear door making the rear trim appear to be the correct length, and 2) provide more flexible inventory options somehow so that customers can buy the length they need separately for front and rear doors rather than only selling them in 'sets' that may or may not fit well.Helpful (12)

THE SIDE MOLDING I PURCHASED WAS EASY TO INSTALL AND LOOKS GREAT.Helpful (7)
Will this fit the 2019 crew cab?
At this time the moldings have not been confirmed to fit the 2019 models.
What are the measurements or length of the front and rear door molding
They are each 2 inches wide, with the front being 42.5 inches long and the rear being 26 inches long.
Does this product include enough for all 4 doors - or just one side of 2 doors? Just want to know how much to order. Thanks.
This kit will include 4 bodyside moldings. One for each door.
