Last month, our sister site 5thGenRams.com got a chance to finally see the Mopar-Modified 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel Concept that was first shown at the 2018 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. Lucky for us, Mopar showcased the concept at their booth at the 2019 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.
The Mopar-Modified 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel Concept was created by Mopar using parts pulled from the over 200 accessories from the Mopar Performance Parts portfolio. Yes, there was a few concept parts added to the concept. But there is a good chance that Mopar will be adding them to their future Ram accessories portfolio.
The Ram 1500 Rebel is painted a custom neutral blue, nicknamed “Rebel Smoke,” and is outfitted for the trail with a Mopar lift kit that raises the Ram two inches for enhanced off-road clearance. One-piece cast-aluminum black Mopar off-road running boards provide easy ingress and egress. Mopar Satin Black 18 x 8-inch cast-aluminum beadlock wheels are trimmed with “Rebel Smoke” body-color wheel rings and wrapped with 35-inch Goodyear DuraTrac tires, putting proper traction and tread to the trail. Production wheel flares and Grey Metallic skid plates deliver an extra dose of off-road protection.
A Mopar conceptual performance hood covers the 5.7-liter HEMI® engine, which receives an additional performance bump thanks to the Mopar “Ram Airflow” cold-air intake system, stamped up front with a molded R-A-M logo. The appearance of the performance hood pops even more with a Grey Metallic Mopar graphic and a Ram 1500 HEMI badge for those who want to share with the world what’s underneath. All vehicle badging has been turned Grey Metallic.
A Ram Bar in the bed acts as a mounting location for five 5-inch LED lights that illuminate the trail at a bright 4,800 lumens each. The bed also incorporates a conceptual rear spare tire carrier, Mopar rear bed step and black spray-in bedliner. Satin Black Rebel graphics from Mopar dress up the bed sides and Mopar 5-inch Gloss Black exhaust tips complete the rear custom touches.
Inside, soft and hard interior trim has been transformed to carry a black monochromatic look, a distinct change from the standard red anodized Rebel trim. Mopar accessories complete the interior, including all-weather mats, brushed and polished door sill guards with the R-A-M logo, wireless charging and a conceptual pedal kit.
