installed hitch receiver today, perfect fit, took about an hour and a half.
hidden hitch model # 87533. only thing i had to do differently was run bolts through bumper cover, evidently on regular rams you can pull back cover and insert the bolts underneath so they are hidden.

Looks great. That will be the next mod on the bosses truck after we get the spoiler installed on the bed cover.

Let us know how it works out.

Hey, I'd be REAL interested to hear/see how that wing on the bed cover goes. Which cover are you using/planning to use?

Very clean install. I was noticing the notched out bumpercover around the hitch, I didn't notice that on others I've seen. Did you get a differant cover or just a damn nice notch job? It looks factory.

Viperram...we used a SNUG TOP lid. We ran into some problems with the spoiler though. I'll start a thread about it later with all the data.

Now you really have me curious. SNUG TOP is the one I want to get. I know you will be starting a thread, but can you summarize the basic problem(s) you had with the spoiler?

Basically, the spoiler is too short, and will not allow you to gain access to the lock to open the bed lid.

A-h-h-h-h! So a cover that folds over the tailgate and has a lock in the back is probably better. I noticed that Snug Top also makes a lid that opens automatically using a remote.

I haven't received my Snug Top SL yet. When I ordered it I inquired with the vendor and he said that on some vehicles with spoilers, they just bend the key 90 degrees.
The SL is available with the Remote Control release and the key is simply for emergencies is you have a power or remote failure. The Snug Top SL also has a rotary slam latch so you can shut it and it will lock....no key needed. To open it you can use the remote or the key. I selected the Snug top because it fit so well, had a remote available and won the Daimler-Chrysler award at SEMA. I looked at one of these on a truck with a similar spoiler and felt that there would be room to make a key work. The hardest part will be the length of the key shaft.

The other thing you have to think about is where the spoiler mounts. Its right in the area where the weather stripings is for the lid.

bending the key 90% would not work IMO. Most keys break if thats done to them.
