The RAM Tough Box is Constructed of high strength composite, steel, and marine grade aluminium; materials are meticulously chosen to ensure long product life and exceptional performance. Another key feature is the incorporation of moulded parts to create the tightest of seams and the elimination of sharp corners or edges.
Keeping in mind the safety of the vehicle occupants and ease of use and installation, these consoles are crafted to meet and exceed expectations. The RAM® Tough-Box™ consoles set the bar for an industry standard. No fleet should consider upfitting their fleet with anything less than the best, RAM®.
How To Build A RAM Tough Box
Step 1. Select a Leg Kit
Select the leg kit that matches the Year/Make/Model of your vehicle. Most leg kits are designed with a No-Drill™ Feature, but there are also universal leg kits available that can be drilled into any floorboard.
Step 2. Select your Faceplates
Select the Make & Model of your radio to determine the correct faceplate. You can select any number of radios. For every faceplate you add, be mindful of the overall length of each faceplate. These lengths will be used to determine which size console box to select in Step 3.
Example: “FP3” = 3” Faceplate. “FP4” = 4” Faceplate.
When finished, add up the total length of all your faceplates.
Step 3. Select your RAM Tough Box Console
Select a console box that is large enough to fit all of your faceplates selected in Step 2. It is ok if the box has extra room.
Standard Console Box:
Every Console Box part number contains a number that indicates the overall length of the box. The inside gap of the console box will always be 2” less than the overall length.
Angled Console Box:
Every Angled Console Box has the same basic design: Two sections of 9” faceplate space (18” Total). The angled 9” section is commonly used for supporting radios, and the flat 9” section is commonly used for accessory pockets and cup holders (more details in Step 5).
Step 4. Select your Top Plate
If you selected a Standard Console Box in Step 3, you may select the 23” or 29” Top Plate. If you selected an Angled Console Box in Step 3, the only compatible top plate is the 29”.
Step 5. Select Filler Plates
Subtract your Console Boxes’ Faceplate space (Step 3) from the total length of faceplates (Step 2). The remaining number will be the length needed in filler plates & accessories to complete your Console Box.
-If you have no remaining space, skip this step.
-If you have an Angled Console Box, be mindful of the two independent 9” spaces. A 4” gap could be 2” on the flat section and 2” on the angled section
Step 6. Select Accessories
