This Viper V10-Powered Ram SRT-10 Night Runner Is Currently Up For Grabs!

If Darth Vader Owned A Pickup, This Would Be It...

With a top speed of just over 150 mph and the biggest engine in a performance pickup, the Ram SRT-10 was the “baddest” pickup on the planet in the mid-2000s. Offered for three model years, the Ram SRT-10 became an instant classic for the performance pickup genre.

Powered by the GEN III 8.3-liter (505 cubic-inch) Viper V10 from the Dodge Viper, the Ram SRT-10 produced 500 horsepower (373 kW) @ 5,600 rpm and 525 lb.-ft. (712 N⋅m) of torque @ 4,200 rpm. With a top speed of 154 mph (248 km/h) and 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) time of 4.9 seconds, the 5,130 lb (2,327 kg) pickup could complete the 1/4-mile in 13.6-seconds @ 106 mph (171 km/h) if you could run through the gears of the 6-speed Tremec T-56 manual, fast enough. Numbers that are still impressive today.

I didn't have the the SRT version truck, but I did own two Dodge 3500 crew cab duallys with the 8.0 V10 engines, one with the automatic and one with the manual transmission. Even though they were only one year apart, the manual trans with the 4.10 axle would pin you to the seat on wide open throttle, the auto with the higher gears and single exhaust felt like a slug in comparison. I did a lot of towing, and well under the truck's rated capacities by the way, and after the 3rd automatic transmission burned up within the first 12 months I lemon lawed it; the manual trans truck was a bullet proof beast and a blast to drive. Just like so many other cars and trucks over the past 45 years I wish I could have kept it...
