For consignment, a sports car disguised as a family hauling pickup truck. This truck can certainly haul cargo, but its main theme is to definitely haul ass and give your passengers one hell of a ride. A top speed of 154mph you will not be fooling around when going from the grocery store to the kids soccer game due to the V10 Viper engine under the hood. This truck is equipped with some bolt ons to make even more power from that hissing V10. A Paxton Novi supercharger, a performance camshaft and long tube headers, all the while presenting in Solar Yellow. For the purists, our consignor has all the stock parts to include with your purchase if you want a mere 500hp family hauler. Built for toughness under the RAM moniker, but no fooling around on the acceleration and speed aspect and only 1 of 298 built for the model year in this color. Now thats one seriously rare hauler. HISSSSSSSSS! Exterior Bathed in the rarely seen factory applied coating of Solar Yellow, this truck presents well with only minor stone chips to detract from the retina searing yellow and custom black painted stripe complete with ghost flames and a poised to strike viper on the tailgate. All is appropriate for the verified 36,791 clocked miles. With its large tall body matching grille, HID headlights, and lower rounded fenders flanking the central scooped hood and huge front bumper/aero setup, it looks like a big long sports car. A hood scoop, raked windshield in tinted glass and all rounded off surfaces, in all steel, lets go racin! Add the rear spoiler off the top of the rear tailgate, big black 22-inch wheels wrapped with 305/40R22 gummy rubbers, and you can run with the best of them. While being a more-door on a car isnt cool but add the rear doors to a truck and its the hottest thing since peanut butter and bananas got together. A Solar Yellow fiberglass cover is atop the bed and can be actuated by a remote popper, hows that for convenience? Underneath, the bed is lined with a Ram logoed fully encompassing black plastic liner, and I simply cant get enough of the added read to strike custom airbrushed viper atop the painted black custom stripe on the tailgate. Interior Lots-O conveniences in here with power windows, power locks, power seats, a Pioneer AM/FM/CD/Navi equipped aftermarket stereo, and A/C all the creature comforts of home in there. Leather bolsters frame suede inserts in all black are both very nicely preserved and in the back is a sprawling bench with more leather and suede. These seats have been well cared for and show only light age wrinkles on the drivers outer bolsters. Setting the seating off is yellow stitching which meshes well with the Solar Yellow inserts clad into the 4 doors and it even makes an appearance in front of the passenger on the dash. Between the 2 body hugging front buckets is a padded top console with cupholders which can be folded up to make room for a 3rd. The factory leather wrapped and yellow stitched wheels fronts the dash which has neat-o white faced gauges with some digital readouts inserted too. A white face AutoMeter SRT oil temperature gauge has been added to the drivers A-pillar which is covered in a cream white cloth. This cloth continues up to encompass the expansive headliner and provides the perfect frame for the front overhead console and read flip down DVD player. Clean black carpeting covers the floors and is protected by black carpeted and yellow highlighted SRT-10 mats. Drivetrain Look ...under the hood, its a Viper engine! Yes, kids hold on because we have 10 cylinders, (8.3 Liters of them to be exact), to pump out EFI fed fossils and air to the tune of 500hp. But that was when this truck rolled off the assembly line. Now a Paxton Novi 2000 supercharger has been bolted on for extra air and fossil capability. A Comp Cam stage 2 camshaft was installed to help actuate the valves and a throttle body spacer has been added. On back is a 48RE 4-speed automatic tranny and a Dana 80 pumpkin with 4.11 gears puts all that power to the pavement. A Viper engine never looked so good in a truck! Undercarriage The usual patina and wear certainly not out of the ordinary is seen underneath. Sportscar like Bilstein shock absorbers are on along with independent coil springs in the front and leaf springs with a 2 drop in the rear. Also seen are large caliper power disc brakes on all 4 corners with new Extreme pads and rotors. Long tube headers slither their way down from the mighty V10 with shiny exhaust and Dynomax mufflers snaking its way from front to rear and ending just under the right side of the rear bumper. Drive-Ability A press of the remote start and the Viper V10 roared to life. After my climb to the body hugging yet comfortable drivers seat but felt odd sitting up high behind the wheel looking out of what might be misconstrued as a big rig. But it all came together upon a slip of the column shifter into D where I raced off to the test track. Here it performed swimmingly with beautiful unending acceleration, bias free braking (important!) and good handling because its a pickup truck after all! All functions were working just fine, and it has a real kick when you get a bit leaded with the right foot. Look! Its a truck...No its a sports car....No its actually a really cool and fast pickup truck with the heart of a Viper V10 EFI high performance package and the room to haul the whole family. A Solar Yellow flare if you will. Come to our Hallowed Halls and try to catch this Viper pickup before it before it strikes...possibly into the V10 sunset.
