I'm just the broke college kid looking for a good fathers day gift.
Go for one with a wire out of the rear, and run it to the glove box. That's what I've done in my Jeep - I've never seen behind the dash of a Ram, but I'll be very surprised if it isn't a clear and easy drop from the back of the head unit to the glove box. Most vehicles that aren't German make it pretty easy.
Doing it this way keeps the installation clean, and it's more secure if he leaves the iPod in the car while still being easily accessible while he's driving.
