For Sale: 2005 Dodge Ram 1500
There have been a few performance trucks over the years. There are recent models like the Raptor and Silverado SS, previous models like the Lightning, 454 SS, and Syclone, and even the old 1978 Li'l Red Express (which could outrun a Corvette from the same year). But the Dodge Ram SRT10 is king of the hill, as the most powerful and fastest of the bunch. With its "triple 500" powerplant (505 cubic inches, 510 horsepower, 525 foot-pounds of torque), the Viper truck is like no other.
This 2005 model has only 25,000 miles and is in excellent condition inside and out. The black paint has a mirror-like shine and is the perfect color for this truck and its unique look. From the integrated hood scoop to the rear spoiler, it really makes its presence known. Everything is in perfect working condition as well. The motor fires right up with the pushbutton starter, the Tremec six-speed manual transmission and clutch work smoothly, and the Dana M60 limited slip rear end is as strong as they come.
While it has fantastic straight-line performance and a 150+ mph top speed, the SRT10 was also designed for better handling with a lowered suspension featuring higher performance springs and Bilstein shocks (including an extra shock on the rear axle to prevent wheel hop). The 22" wheels are some of the nicest produced by Chrysler, and the Pirelli Scorpion Zero tires give excellent traction. The brakes are simply amazing with 15" rotors in front and 14" in the rear. They also use TRW-designed calipers and front cooling ducts. You'd never expect a truck to stop like this one.
The Ram's interior is excellent as well featuring black leather with silver accents throughout. The seats look very luxurious with suede inserts. They are not only very comfortable but also feature race-type bolsters to keep you in place. The folding center console provides lots of storage space in addition to the trays behind the seats. There are also aluminum pedals and silver gauges with Viper graphics. The leather-trimmed steering wheel is a nice touch too. The factory sound system is amazing and features steering wheel controls and Infinity speakers along with a 10-inch subwoofer.
Note this truck has been equipped with a high performance billet shifter from X-Metal Engineering (the original Hurst shifter is included). There is also a Volant ram-air intake setup for improved induction, and a plastic bedliner for practicality. Everything else is stock.
The Ram SRT10 is a pretty special machine. It takes the performance truck model to a whole new level, and this fantastic example is as nice as they come. And if you really want a shot in the arm, hop in a Viper truck for your next trip to Home Depot. You'll see what I mean.
