For Sale: 2004 Dodge Ram in Macedonia, Ohio

Vehicle Description

16,876 original miles. Never seen rain or snow. Beautifully preserved inside and out, top and bottom. Never used as a truck. Seriously fast yet surprisingly agile for such a big brute. A sure-fire future collectable that's a blast to drive.Einstein argued that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. We respectfully disagree. The definition of insanity is stuffing an 8.2 liter Viper V10 engine into a Dodge Ram pickup truck. The result is this spectacular Flame Red Ram SRT-10. With just under 17,000 original miles, it's beautifully preserved and has obviously never been used as a daily driver. The brilliant red paint is the same stuff they plastered all over the original Viper, and if you're looking for subtle, well, this ain't it. The SRT-10 got a deeper chin spoiler with built-in fog lights, a massive hood scoop, more aggressive side cladding, and a bumblebee stripe around the tail, so it definitely looks the part of a muscle truck. There's a hard shell tonneau cover that turns the bed into the world's biggest trunk and just in case you missed everything else, there's a wing on top. Condition is virtually as-new, with a deep shine to the paint and surprisingly few signs of use or age-this is a 15-year-old truck, after all. Dodge stylists did a great job of tying it all together because the thing looks like a million bucks. Inside it's as much Viper as the outside: deeply bolstered leather buckets with grippy suede inserts are ready for the track rather than the job site. White-faced gauges cover all the engine's vitals, and there's an oil temperature gauge in an A-pillar pod just for added cool. Everything was standard on the SRT-10, including a powerful A/C system, power windows, mirrors, and locks, and a pretty darned good entertainment system. And yes, that's a Hurst 6-speed shifter right there in the middle of everything. This one is still so fresh that the plastic wrap is on the mats and the airbag tag still hangs from the glove box lid. A sliding rear window makes it comfortable inside when you don't need the A/C (and makes that awesome exhaust note easier to hear). There's a little storage behind the seats and Dodge engineers were thoughtful about it, maximizing the standard cab's utility. Nice!Does the big lump of aluminum under the hood really need any introduction? It's wearing bright red Viper valve covers, so it's not like it's trying to be anything other than an 8.2 liter V10. There's 505 horsepower on tap and an equally massive pile of torque. So it'll incinerate those massive rear tires without really trying. Unlike many of its siblings, this one remains almost entirely stock save for a muffler upgrade to give it just the right sound. Otherwise, it's as the factory intended, including the air filter and electronics. It starts easily, idles nicely, and doesn't really act like 2004's fastest truck in the world. Underneath there's plenty of proof that this truck has never seen foul weather, with original markings and finishes visible throughout. Again, the only change was to the exhaust system, which is now a true dual system exiting through a single chrome tip under the bumper. It's definitely a Viper soundtrack. Handling is impressive for something so large and tall, helped by a set of expensive Bilstein shocks, including one to help tame axle wind-up on top of the pumpkin housing. 4-wheel disc brakes are a wise idea on something so explosively fast and those are some of the biggest tires we've ever seen: 305/40/22 Pirelli Scorpion radials that were original equipment on the SRT-10. Documentation includes all the original factory manuals and books.They only built a little over 3000 of these awesome trucks, and now that the Viper has passed along to the great garage in the sky, these are sure to join them on collectors' short lists. The fact that it's a blast to drive (you can't help but giggle when you blow off Mustangs in your pickup truck) is only icing on a bright red cake.
