RAM 1500 Pickup

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 Pickup
Dodge had technically been producing trucks since 1917, but their 1981 pickups were the first ones to sport the Ram name. In order to signify this, Dodge slapped a ram's head hood ornament on the trucks after Lee Iacocca, Chrysler's President and CEO at the time, decided it was a good mascot.
For consignment a powerful Dodge Ram 1500 (5.7 Liter Hemi Engine) pickup, with plenty of extras to add to the already red eye candy. This two-owner truck has not been driven in the rain, and always garaged between the two owners. A shaved handle gate with a clamshell hard cover for the bed, custom exhaust, bagged rear suspension, LED taillights, and plenty of other goodies added on since its original purchase. A unique, 1 of a kind version of the touch RAM 1500 Hemi.
With nary a speck of rust anywhere, this 2003 truck has recently been bathed in factory Flame Red, then wet sanded and buffed to perfection. Up front the massive grille and bumper setup looks like a large freight train coming right at you. Horizontal ribbed grille, and a honeycombed lower trio intake in the bumper, along with the scooped hood, and you'd best get out of this freight train's way. Aftermarket ground effects panels are added to the lowers, and the handle was shaved from the rear gate, as well as the addition of the hard clamshell body matching cargo area cover that locks securely. With this new paint and meticulous wet sanding and buffing, we were definitely in the deep end of the pool with regards to paint. Gaps are being perfectly minded throughout, and it is difficult to find even a ding on this beauty. Hanging from either door are shorty sport mirrors, and on the tail, we note LED tail lighting. 20-inch replica SRT rims are now on all 4 corners, showing just a smidgen nicer than the stock SRT's. Exhaust cutouts are seen on the rockers and the driver's side is electrically actuated. Alas though, the dual exhaust exits out the rear of this truck, the former being for show only. The spare on this truck is in the bed, due to the aftermarket rear bumper limiting access to the normal underneath mounted spare.
Climbing into the inside we pass custom brushed aluminum panels for the doors embedded into the black molded vinyl, and housing the power door locks, windows, and side mirror adjustments. Even a custom door handle for the inside has been added, and the speakers in the doors have a polished ring for the exteriors. Wide supple leather buckets grace the passenger compartment, and we note a power panel on the bottoms of these chairs to get it just right baby bear. An extra-large centrally located console is between these buckets offering up plenty of square footage for whatever you want. The white-faced gauge cluster is all original and very clean, and there is an aftermarket air/fuel ratio gauge mounted to the “A” pillar. A small storage area is behind the seats, and for the bed, it's lined with a plastic liner on the bed and sides.
Under the hood is a very clean engine bay with a 5.7 liter V8 monster shoehorned within it. It has EFI and a 5-45RFE 5-speed automatic transmission on back. The rear axle sports 3.92 gears.
The underside is fine and dandy on the no rust condition front and noted are the rear bagged suspension working with the leaf springs. On front we see independent coil springs and power disc brakes are on all 4 corners. Exhaling is through 2-1/2-inch stainless piping with catbacks, and 3-inch stainless turndowns on back. Just fine for the undercarriage, strong and sturdy.
King of the road would be adequate for my experience behind the wheel on this one, all customized out, and many extras, shining like a freshly picked apple. She fired right up, and ran like a big truck should, gave me a slight kick in the pants with acceleration, a slight tightening of the shoulder belt on the panic stopping, and had a nice smooth ride at cruise speed. All functions were working swimmingly.
Super duper on this customized 1500 Hemi cargo skate. All beautifully preserved, well maintained and well cared for. Not your typical RAM 1500, and an eye catcher, and head turner ready to butt heads with the best of them.
