    Optional "Hemi" V8, sharp steering, compliant ride, spacious interior, available side curtain airbags.

  • Cons

    Poor fuel mileage, cramped rear seat, fewer body configurations than its competition, ABS not standard.

  • What's New for 2005

    The 3.7-liter V6 and 4.7-liter V8 receive a standard six-speed manual transmission. Crew cab models can be equipped with a power sunroof…

The beast

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 SRT-10 2dr Regular Cab Rwd SB (8.3L 10cyl 6M)

I went looking for a high performance truck from the start. One test drive and I had to have this beast. Don't give a darn about gas mileage. I get about 12mpg in the city and 16mpg on the road. Added a Volant cool air system which makes the engine compartment even better looking. I've had so many people just want to stop me and look at the engine. Plan on adding a supercharger when my extended warranty runs out. Lambo doors in a few weeks for looks.




Oregon viper

Vehicle: 2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 SRT-10 2dr Regular Cab Rwd SB (8.3L 10cyl 6M)

I bought my 05 Viper SRT 10 in Tucson AZ. When I first seen it I knew I had to have it. It is white with blue stripes that goes from the front to the rear of the vehicle. 2 dr with all the bells and whistles of course 6 speed. I'm running on 22" like any true player would. My truck is 99 out of 200 made that year. I was told that this might possibly be a collectors item. I presently have 6000 miles on it, shall I sell or keep?!




Bad to the bone
