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.

Sorry, Does NOT work on mobile phone.
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.

Unstoppable moment in the Ram 2500:
Moab 2019 - Hell’s Revenge - really
getting to test the RAM on technical terrain and show how well they do when
Most scary situation in the Dodge Ram 2500:
stuck in crazy deep mud on a solo trip in the mountains of New Mexico with very
few winch points.
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:
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:
you’re going to run bigger tires, hydraulic assist steering is definitely the
way to go!
Dynamat the interior! For long road trips it is definitely nice to have the
interior quieted down!
go with the Cummins Diesel!
