This rack is for the Ram 1500 & 2500 DS models. Adventure Racks for the new Ram 1500 DT is coming early 2021.
Will fit new shape Ram 2500 DJII 2020 onwards!
Designed and built right here in Brisbane supporting local jobs, the new Murchison Adventure Rack for the Ram 1500 and 2500 is now available!
The Ram Adventure Rack suits all Ram tubs, (5.7 and 6.4 ft Ram regular and RAMBOX tubs.) The Murchison Adventure rack is a bolt-on-bolt-off system, and can be optioned with Cross Bars, Tonneau Cover, or a series of LED worklights and reverse lights. The normal range of commonly available solar panels also fit nicely into the top mounted tray area. The 2nd generation genuine mopar tonneau cover is not compatible with the trifold, the Adventure Rack was designed with the initial genuine Mopar Black Trifold which has the genuine tag on it. We have noticed that the smooth vinyl versions are an aftermarket one supplied by Mopar ex USA but are not the same as the original. Pls note you may have to purchase a Truxedo Prox15 roll back cover instead.
HD Aluminium Construction
We use 3" hoops made from the thicker 4.7m wall thickness for ultimate durability and a 5mm thick top tray. Easy access rear grab handles also help hoping up into the rear of the truck, especially once lifted with bigger tyres and suspension! We've also taken steps in the design to carefully execute the mountings of the hoops so as not to interfere with the Truxedo range of tonneau covers we sell. The Truxedo Prox15 is by far the most versatile, neat and tidy slimline Tonneau available for the Ram. The tri fold types are not very user friendly as people are finding out and most are changing to the Truxedo's. The 2nd gen smooth Mopar tri-fold cover that comes with the tub will not work with the Adventure Rack.
A small amount of drilling is requiered to fit this rack.
Lastly, all wiring for lights and solar ect can be hidden inside the tubes all the way through to the inside of the OE tub.
An optonal extra is a pair of top mount Cross Bars for the roof tray to allow for sucessful HD mounting of huge side awning setups and/or roof top tent options. It also (obviously) allows for the carrying of ocean Kayaks, can accept Tiny mounts and also larger 270deg Batwing/Foxwing Style Awnings.
There is NOTHING like this out on the market - its as slick in design and purpose as it is in the looks department. Theres nothing worse than an ugly set of hoops or bars on a try that have no aesthetics designed into them as we're sure you would agree! This rack looks killer!
All Australian designed and made means you get local support, local warranty (if ever needed) and best of all, you're keeping jobs here in Australia.
Truxedo Pro X-15 Tonneau Cover
A sleek, low-profile design is the signature of the Pro X-15. Heavy-duty construction and the patented automatic tension control keeps the cover looking great in any weather condition. 15 degree rails deliver an extra low-profile, flush-mount look on the truck bed, and superior-grade woven fabric provides a stylish matte-black appearance.
The cover can be installed or removed in minutes, with no drilling required, and the unique self-leveling design feature allows for a more accurate installation.
We have included the option for between 2 - 8 spot lights. These aren't your cheap ebay lights, the Base6 range is made in South Korea with 10 Watt Genuine CREE LEDs selected due to their quality and superior light output. Polycarbonate lenses are up to 10 times more impact-resistant than plastic or glass lenses. The heavy duty aluminium housings are powder coated for durability, they are shock proof and vibration resistant and built tough for Australian outback climate and conditions. Rated IP68 as "dust tight" and protected against complete, continuous submersion in water. We back this with a 5 year warranty for your piece of mind.
Non Rambox Rams only. The cover plates are a purley astetic choice for those who want something a bit different. A two peice design, they have a box behinde the R-A-M cut out where a light can be fitted if you want that lit up at night. (Light and switch not included.)
We've worked with Mozzie Boat Loaders to develop a Tinny Boat Loader for the Ram 1500. If you'd like more information on this, please give us a call on 07 3205 5011
Shipping + Packing
We've spared no expense when it comes to packing the Murchison Ram Adventure Rack. We package the Adventure in a (rather expensive) custom foam lined box, with the tray wrapped in a bubble wrap. The Hoops are layered down on top, with more foam between each layer.
For your convenience, we pree aseemble the hoops with the headboard screen and Cross Bars (if added to the order.) Once safley This is then strapped down to a pallet for ease of shipping, and to keep the Adventure Rack safe and free of damage as possible. Because this ships on a pallet, you will need this delivered somewhere that has a forklift, or have multiple people who can help lift it off the truck. The rack + pallet weighes about 45kg.
Shipping is a flatrate fee of $375 to any business address in Australia, rural or remote areas may incure an additonal fee. We can have this sent to the nearest TNT depot for collection as well. Due to pricing changes by TNT, this Adventure Rack attracts an addition $75 if delivered to a residential address.
You can also pick this up from our Brendale, Brisbane workshop.
Pls note the Tonneau Covers on the 6ft4 model are not compatible - you must change out to a Truxedo Prox15 soft roll cover.
