Do you feel that the 702 horsepower Ram 1500 TRX isn’t aggressive enough? Would you like more of a militarized look to your off-road pickup? Is four-wheel-drive (4×4) not functional enough for your everyday needs? Then the Apocalypse Juggernaut is for you!
Known for their 6×6 builds involving the Jeep® Wrangler and Gladiator, Apocalypse Manufacturing has also built another six-wheel-drive (6×6) version of the Ram 1500 TRX, cleverly called the “Warlord”. But its latest creation is just as bonkers as their Jeep builds.
Like the Warlord, the Juggernaut integrates an additional axle with the current TRX suspension by using OEM parts like the TRX’s 2.6-inch Bilstein Black Hawk e2 adaptive performance shocks. The bed is also extended to an 8-foot plus configuration up to cover the additional rear axle. The additional rear axle is a Dana 60, just like the stock TRX, and features locking differentials. Apocalypse says the Juggernaut can tow up to an outstanding 20,000 lbs.
Juggernaut features Fuel 22-inch wheels wrapped with 40-inch Toyo Cross Country M/T rubber. To help with the added 6×6 traction, the Juggernaut continues to run the TRX’s full-time transfer case and makes light of the six stock driving modes (Sport, Snow, Custom, Mud/Sand, Rock, and Baja).
Apocalypse Manufacturing has also revamped the exterior to make it look more like an armored car than a TRX. Massively flared fenders, huge steel grille, and steel front bumper, completely change the look of the once handsome pickup. Integrated LED light bar on the roof and front bumper, help to add more light on those backroads at night. While the rear of the vehicle features a vertical-slotted steel bumper, making the back of the truck look totally different. Gone are R-A-M text badges on the tailgate and doors, in favor of Apocalypse and Juggernaut logos.
Covering the bed is a triangular power rolling lockable bed cover with a remote. It looks very similar to something you would find on the upcoming Cybertruck.
Under the hood, the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI HELLCAT V8 gets upgraded to put out 850 horsepower. That’s a 148 horsepower increase over its stock form. It continues to use the TRX’s 8-speed automatic transmission.
Inside, much of the TRX’s stock interior remains with the exception of custom leather seats. The truck still maintains its 12-inch Uconnect 5 infotainment system, premium Harmon Kardon 900-watt 19-speaker sound system, heated and ventilated seats, and factory panoramic sunroof. On the technology side, the Juggernaut makes the best of the TRX’s Surround-View Camera System, ParkSense Front and Rear Sensors, Front Trail Camera, and Blind-Spot Monitoring.
An optional 100-gallon fuel tank is also available, for those who want to go the distance without refueling.
For those looking to purchase a Juggernaut, it will set up back a hefty $297,999 USD. That is about $47,000 more than the stock-looking Warlock 6×6 offering from Apocalypse. For more information, you can visit Apocalypse6x6.com.
