2004 Dodge Ram Pickup Compatibility With Pioneer Platform


Will the rhino rack backbone be compatible with my 2004 ram 2500 quad cab? If so, part number?


Expert Reply:

The Rhino-Rack Backbone Mounting System for Pioneer Platform - Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500, part # RRRR1B1, is not compatible with your vehicle, it is only compatible with 2010 - 2021 Dodge Ram Trucks. Unfortunately, there is not a traditional rack fit for your 2004 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 Quad Cab.

I encourage you to look into a track mounting system for your roof. Thule and Yakima both offer options that will work. You have to check your owner's manual to see if it works for your vehicle. If so, you can then install a Rhino Rack roof rack that will allow you to mount a Pioneer Platform.

The roof rack I recommend is the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for Thule and Yakima Tracks - 2 Heavy-Duty Crossbars - Black - 54" Long, part # Y01-120B-NT. This rack has a weight limit of 220lbs, but check your vehicle's owners manual for its weight limit. The lower weight limit is what you should adhere to. This rack has heavy duty bars and you can lock the rack to your vehicle.

If you want to attach a Pioneer Platform you will need two of the Pioneer Platform Mounting Kit for Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty Crossbars, part # RR43105. Once this is installed to your Pioneer Platform you will be able to mount it to the roof of your 2004 Dodge Ram Truck. The Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Roof Tray - Aluminum - 60" Long x 56" Wide, part # RR42113BF, is my recommended Pioneer Platform.

I have included product description links and a video review link below.
