Very low miles at 8660 Rare and very desirable Black Finish Newer Nexen tires Recently serviced Clean Carfax showing 4 owners since new When it comes to these more modern high performance cars we don't quite know all the tricks the manufactures can work that make these vehicles as powerful, with excellent driving manners, and comfortable at the same time, that being said please check out what the experts say below, this one fits it all. If you fire a 12-gauge shotgun packed with 00 buck, you'll get a sense of what it's like to pull the trigger on a Ram SRT-10: a loud roar, followed by a cloud of smoke, and, suddenly, heavy metal flying through space. The only difference is that this truck's Viper-sourced V-10 firepower, good for a 5.2-second 0-to-60 run, surges smoothly at your back and not abruptly against your shoulder. Dodge's Performance Vehicle Operations group has created more than just a Pirelli-melting, 500-horse cargo bed in search of a chassis. The Ram SRT-10 is a comprehensively well-matched 5150-pound performance recipe that turns a short-bed, standard-cab Ram into a sport-truck-cum-Trans-Am racer. Installing the Viper's 8.3-liter, OHV, aluminum V-10 into the Ram's platform is philosophically straightforward, as the truck is factory-offered with a 300-horsepower, iron-block V-10 in HD form. Getting the job done, however, required numerous detail changes, including a revised intake system, oil pan, mounts, and cooling revisions. The only transmission offered is the same Tremec T56 six-speed manual used in the Viper. Steering-rack response is crisp, and there's braking muscle to spare in the form of 15-inch front rotors and 14-inchers in the rear. Viper power requires a massive tire-contact patch to be remotely useful. So, in the interest of "usefulness," Dodge fitted the SRT-10 with steamroller-like 305/40ZR22 meats. We were prepared for the shaking and chassis booming often associated with oversized rolling stock and its barely manageable unsprung mass. But the suspension tuners at PVO have worked some magic. The ride, although not luxo-car smooth, is firm and not at all uncomfortable on good road surfaces. The only serious suspension-related edge is some rubbery chassis shudder on bumpy roads, where the laws of physics regarding minimal wheel travel and big-tire inertia won't be denied. Key to the truck's surprisingly obedient behavior: Bilstein shocks, shorter and stiffer springs, a rear anti-roll bar, a new front knuckle design, a one-inch ride-height drop in front, a 2.5-inch rear drop, and an effective traction-bar system. The result is a big, fast hunk that does what it's told. The SRT-10 spent some valuable aero time in the company's wind tunnel and learned a few lessons from Dodge's NASCAR Craftsman Truck program, too. Up front, a deep fascia with a splitter reduces lift. Out back, a rear wing reduces drag and adds up to 165 pounds of downforce at track speeds. When you need the bed, you can easily remove the wing and stow it on top of the bedrails. The bulging hood, nonfunctional scoop, and rear fascia with dual exhaust cutouts are unique to this sporting variant. Inside, you'll find softly stuffed but sharply contoured black leather buckets with "SRT-10" logos stitched across the backrests. The seat cushions and a deeply padded center-console lid are flat enough to accommodate a third, belted passenger. Looking sports-car sharp is a carbon-fiber leather-trimmed steering wheel. Behind the wheel is a full complement of large and easy-to-read, silver-faced gauges including a 160-mph speedo and a 7000-rpm tach. Dodge claims the truck will do 150, so that speedo's none too optimistic.
