Dodge Ram 2500, Modified #71.

An American pickup truck filmed in Colorado USA, the Dodge Ram 2500 kitted out by Matt from Exploration Outfitters. What a capable beast this Ram is.

We had the pleasure to join Matt on our adventure to Moab in Utah where we drove Hell Revenge.

If you were to see the terrain at Moab the last thing on your mind would be to drive a Dodge Ram over it. But it was so capable rolling its 4.5t tonnes over the slick rock with 37-inch tyres.

Matt’s 2500 Ram is setup for anything really. Any terrain over short or long distance, its also the first vehicle in the U.S. that I’ve seen to have long range fuel tanks.

Aside from the impressive handling over Moab this Dodge Ram is kitted out with an upright fridge, fully loaded canopy and flat bed by PCOR and a roof top tent that just looks like the perfect size as the Ram is so BIG.

Matt’s modification tips: 

Design your vehicle based around what you want to do with the vehicle and what you need for your adventures. Don’t worry so much about what people say is cool online, build it for yourself.

 

Things to lookout for with this model Dodge Ram 2500:

There have been some transmission issues reported, but so far in 80,000 miles I’ve not had any problems with mine, but I definitely keep an eye on it.


Top 3 tips with the Ram 2500:

1. If you’re going to run bigger tires, hydraulic assist steering is definitely the way to go!

2. Dynamat the interior! For long road trips it is definitely nice to have the interior quieted down!

3. Definitely go with the Cummins Diesel!
