Background of RAM Trucks, RAM Window Visors, Rain Guards and the Aftermarket Part Industry

 

It may be interesting for you to find out that Ram Truck was established as a division of Chrysler in 2010, as a spinoff from Dodge, using the name of the popular Dodge Ram line of pickups that is now sold under the Ram banner.  It was announced by Chrysler, that the Ram brand will concentrate on "real truck customers," rather than casual truck buyers who buy trucks for image or style.

Chrysler's acquisition by Italian automaker Fiat S.p.A., and the plans called for Dodge switching to an exclusively car-based lineup with all pickup and future heavy-duty trucks by Chrysler being sold under the newly created Ram brand. The goal for Chrysler was to increase truck sales "from 2011 280,000 to 415,000 by 2014".

The first-generation Ram trucks & vans introduced in 1981 were named for the Ram hood ornament that first appeared on Dodge vehicles in 1933. Dodge kept the previous generation's model designations: "D", "B" or Ram indicated two-wheel drive while "W" or Power Ram indicated four-wheel drive. Just like Ford, Dodge used 150 to indicate a one-half ton truck, 250 for a three-quarter ton truck, and 350 for one-ton truck. Standard cab, "Club" extended cab, and crew cab versions were offered along with 6.5 ft (2.0 m) and 8 ft (2.4 m) bed lengths and "Utiline" and "Swept line" styled boxes.

In 1998, Dodge introduced the "Quad Cab", which uses smaller, "suicide" doors directly behind the main doors. This was offered as an option on the "Club Cab" for this model year. Other changes for 1998 included rounded mirrors replacing the classic square ones, a revised interior, dual airbags, a chime replacing the buzzer for seat belts/door ajar/headlights/ and a digital odometer. 

The option of air suspension became available on the rear of 2014 model year 2500 & 3500 pick up trucks. 1500 models added the option of a Eco-Diesel V6. 2500 models now feature coil spring suspension, instead of leaf spring. The cast iron, flex fuel, 4.7 V8 Chrysler PowerTech engine is discontinued, ending Corsair engine production. Dodge/Ram 4.7 V-8, 3.7 V-6, Jeep was the Power tech [Dodge/RAM was called Magnum 3.7 V-6 4.7 Magnum V-8 2000-2007 2008-2013 it was just the 3.7 V-6 and 4.7 V-8]. The aluminum, flex fuel 3.6 V6 Pentastar is now the base engine, along with the 8-speed Torque-Flite transmission. Ram now offers the 3.6L Pentastar V6 on Laramie, and Longhorn trim. The RAM has become extremely popular, even in the midst of expensive gas prices. Dodge RAM Truck Enthusiasts have been known to be lovers of accessorizing their vehicles, and at Beast, we strive to provide the most rugged aftermarket parts for them.

Market Overview Window Visors and Rain Guards

The first window deflectors were brought to market by the aftermarket car part industry.
The automotive aftermarket is the secondary market of the automotive industry.  This market which produced Window Visors and Rain Guards is concerned with the manufacturing, distribution, retailing, and implementation of all automobile parts, and accessories, after the sale of the automobile to the consumer.

Consumers have the option of repairing their vehicles themselves (the "do-it-yourself" or "DIY" segment) or can take the vehicle to a professional repair facility (the "do-it-for me" or "DIFM" segment). The aftermarket helps keep vehicles on the road by providing consumers the choice of where they want their vehicles serviced, maintained, or customized.

With the DIY market-creating innovation and then productizing the innovation through new avenues we are seeing more diversity in the market than ever before.   Beast Carbon was founded on the thought that we can make higher quality Windows Visors, and Rain Guards utilizing carbon fiber and through innovation lower the cost to compete with the lower quality plastic injection mold products that exist on the market currently.

The United States overall automotive aftermarket is estimated to be worth $318.2 billion (2013), contributing more than 2.3% to GDP. The aftermarket employs 4.2 million people who work at manufacturers, distributors, retailers and repair shops.

What is a Window Visor and Rain Guard

A window deflector is mounted above the doors of some automobiles, to protect the inside of the car from rain or other precipitation in case of slightly opened windows. Additionally, it may help to prevent precipitation entering the interior in case of an opened door, e.g. dropping from the roof or directly from the air. Deflectors are also fitted to sunroofs to deviate the wind.

It is also known as a "monsoon shield" or a "rain visor" (in countries without monsoon). The primary purpose of window deflectors is to prevent dust, snow, rain, other precipitation or excessive wind from entering the cabin. Also, window deflectors direct air flows over the vehicle, and thus, reduce the wind noise when driving on moderate speeds. Window deflectors can be installed directly in the window channel or attached to the vehicle's body in the sunroof or side window area using 3M automotive-grade adhesive tape. Window deflectors are a common accessory in the automotive aftermarket. Being vehicle-specific, they are normally designed to fit the individual car, truck or SUV models.

 

Types of Window Visors

Currently, 2 types of materials are in use to produce Window Visors and Rain Guards.

The first material is a plastic injection mold. Overview of plastics for Window Visors and Rain Guards. Plastics - acrylic and polycarbonate sheet materials plastics.  Acrylic and polycarbonate sheet materials are widely used for Window Visors and Rain Guards because they come in a wide variety of colors, are easy to form into complex shapes including curvature and finishing.  Acrylic and polycarbonate materials are easy to paint, print, and bond with adhesives and solvent cement.

Material options: Makrolon® polycarbonate sheet and OPTIX® and Plexiglas® acrylic sheet are utilized. Polycarbonate - Polycarbonates have superior impact resistance compared with acrylics and they are often specified when durability during shipping and installation are required. Acrylic - Acrylics generally have superior optical properties compared with polycarbonate materials. Fluted olefins - Plastic sheet materials such as Coroplast® are inexpensive and easy to print.

Cons: They do not hold up to wear and tear from a physical standpoint and also from a UV standpoint.  You will find that Rain Guards and Window Visors will have color fade over time and become brittle in extreme temperature changes requiring additional purchases over time.

2. The Second Material is Carbon Fiber: Carbon fiber is generally combined with another material creating a composite, to form a carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer. This combination is very rigid, and has a very high strength-to-weight ratio.
