We hadn't realized this until it was pointed out by Mike Levine at, but when Dodge debuted the 2009 Ram 1500 at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show amidst a herd of cattle, it only had the Crew Cab model on hand. Regular Cab versions of the Ram have remained absent from public view... until now. has the scoop on the two-door, two-passenger half-ton pickups, and we have to say the Ram's new design looks just as good with a small cab as it does with an extended one. The 2009 Dodge Ram Regular Cab can be had with either a 6-foot 4-inch bed or an 8-foot bed, and its wheelbase will be either 120 or 140 inches depending on the bed you choose. Unfortunately, the innovative RamBox storage solution is not an option on the Regular Cab for some reason. Trim levels for the regular cab include the working man's ST, the higher-performance Sport and R/T models, and a new trim called the TRX-4 that's more off-road ready than the others with four-wheel-drive, a suspension upgrade and Goodyear Wrangler SRA All Terrain Tires. Though sales of half-ton pickups in the U.S. are falling fast, the Ram is obviously coming ready to compete in 2009 and the Regular Cab model is just one weapon in Dodge's arsenal.
