Ram Truck has introduced a new Snow Plow Prep package for Canadian’s on the 2021 Ram 1500. “As part of Ram’s commitment to continuous improvement within the segment, we now offer a Snow Plow Prep package for Ram 1500 customers,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “Ram has taken a larger presence in the commercial vehicle market, and this offering is the latest expansion of our hard-working trucks.”
The new Ram 1500 Snow Plow Prep option includes a 220-amp alternator, truck-side plow wiring harness and a rear power sliding window with defroster. The active air dam is removed when this option is selected to make way for plow mounts.

The plow, mounts and controller are all sold separately and are available through several manufacturers. The Ram 1500 Snow Plow Prep package will be available later this year.
