2011 Mopar Ram Runner Stage II Kit and Jeep Wrangler JK-8 Independance Pickup Truck
"Moparized" Ram Truck Mopar Ram Runner
The available Mopar Ram Runner kit was inspired by high-speed desert off-road racing. The rigors of off-road racing require large tires, additional ground clearance and a sophisticated suspension system capable of withstanding tremendous impact. These features are combined with the proven HEMI 5.7-liter V-8 into a package that is stable at speed and rock-solid in the corners. Inspired by trophy trucks, steel front fenders and rear bed-sides are replaced with fiberglass layered in the Liquid Metal Mopar racing scheme. The high-clearance wheel wells allow tremendous suspension articulation with zero tire-to-body interference.

Ram and Mopar will sponsor the 2011 TORC short-course off-road racing series and bring a significant on- and off-track presence to each round of the championship. Ram will become the official vehicle of TORC with the Mopar Ram Runner pacing all of the series' events.
Jeep Wrangler JK-8 Independence
Taking cues from the popular Jeep Scrambler CJ-8 from the 1980's, Mopar has designed a kit for do-it-yourselfers that converts a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited into a pickup truck. The bed length is 50 inches and the width between wheel wells is 44 inches. The team created body panels to cover the second-row entrance and removed all of the interior parts behind the front seats-transforming the vehicle into a two-seater with just enough room for gear inside, and a pickup style bed to be used for outside cargo.
The JK-8 drivetrain is fitted with a Mopar/Dynatrac ProRock 44 front axle and stock Dana 44 rear axle, both spun with 4.88 gears. Linking the axles to the frame is a 4.5-inch long-arm suspension kit and 37-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrain KM2 tires make the connection to the ground. A fresh coat of yellow paint and Mopar's off-road bumpers for the front and rear were utilized along with a new fuel door and slush mats.
The JK-8 kit includes bed floor, inner/outer body panels, half hard top (works with Freedom Top panels), and a new bulkhead.
Jeep Wrangler JK 4.5 Inch Lift Kit Installation

benefits on the kit, and show you why this is the best JK lift on the
RIPP Supercharged Dodge 5.7 Hemi Ram Runner (Raptor Killer)
RAM Runner Supercharger line, sales have
been strong and the words getting out, there's a new kit in town! We're
excited to say we got our hands on one of the baddest, meanest RAM 1500 out
there, the Mopar built, Raptor fighting RAM Runner. The RAM Runner was
designed by Kent Kroeker and built by KORE Offroad to take any punishment
you can think of, and it delivers. Basically they replaced everything on
the underside and gave it the fenders and stance to fit the large tires.
BUT - The 5.7 VVTi HEMI V8 lacks the power to compensate. That's where we
come in... We went on location to none other than Ocotillo Southern
California where we found the slipperiest, nastiest most foul mix of
terrain we can test on... and put this RAM through the paces.... BEST PART
IS, WE MADE A HD Video of it all!!
The Video will feature a full play-by-play by professional race-truck
driver Kent Kroeker of KORE (Winner of 2011 Baja 1000, 2010 Baja 500 and
several other high profile events) to demonstrate RIPP' integrity with the
HEMI. Together we set up a staged course which mixes flat out speed, jumps,
dunes and anything else the earth can try to stop this truck with. The
kicker is he will do it all naturally aspirated just like you get it from
Mopar Performance. Then we Supercharger
the same truck, run the same course with the same driver... we can't wait
to show you the results... stay tuned....it will melt your FACE!

2014 RAM 1500 Eco Diesel Review and Road Test
Join me as I drive the 2014 RAM 1500 Eco Diesel, the only diesel 1/2-ton
pickup truck sold in America. In perhaps the biggest shake up in this
high-volume and highly competitive segment, Chrysler jammed a 3.0L turbo diesel V6 under the RAM's hood and mated
it to a ZF 8-Speed automatic to create the best towing rig for the money.

Project-JK 2011 SEMA Show Spotlight - AEV Brute Double Cab JK Pick-Up Truck
Of all the Jeep JK Wranglers at the 2011 SEMA Show, I'd have to say that
the AEV Brute Double Cab stole the show. This was by far the most factory
looking JK converted pick-up truck I have ever seen, more so than the MOPAR
JK-8 and it comes complete with a separated truck bed and HEMI to give it
real power. In this Project-JK video spotlight, you'll get to see and hear
Dave Harriton tell us about this awesome vehicle.
