How to install ram stem mount the most secure way

Just wanted to post this shower thought I had that ended up working perfectly to help out others. The original way I installed the stem mount was by trimming down the thick end of the cork included in the ram kit but no matter how much i tightened it, it would loosen up and spin on me. The new secure way I installed it requires the crg bar end mirror adapter.

First step is to cut down the long end tube attached to the ram ball so that it is flush. I used a hacksaw and a dremel.


Since the threading on the crg kit is larger than the ram kit you need to jb weld or glue the gold nut included in the ram kit to the back of the tightener on the mirror adapter so the nut doesnt spin when tightened from the top


You need to install using the original bolt included in the ram kit because the bolt with the mirror adapter is not long enough and too thick here is the final product.



I did this installation on a 2017 but im sure it will work on most years

It's a big hole, but the stem mount instruction booklet tells you to use the thicker part of the skinny end, not the thick end. You have to tighten it down quite a bit and the rubber stem buckles outward and secures it in place perfectly.

I tried everything with the rubber from purchasing a rubber cork that fit the hole perfectly to using the one that came in the kit and no matter how much I tightened it it would loosen and be able to spin pretty easily within a few days. I found the method i am using to feel much more secure and look better so I can adjust it using the ram arm vs me never being 100% happy with how it spun and not feeling as rigid as it does now. Ive seen some others complain about them not being happy with their outcome as well so I figured i would share
