Default Concept Truck, Ram Longhauler

I posted this on my build thread PX8 ram, but this deserves its own thread, who would buy this if you had the jingle???




This is long haul, 170 gallon fuel tank




Conversion of Class 5 Ram 5500 Crew Cab included adding fuel capacity for a total of 170 gallons

Chrysler wants to toughen-up the image of the Ram pickup.
This concept is called the Ram Long-Hauler and it is based on the Class 5 Ram 5500 Crew Cab.
But the modifications are extensive and the cabin has been converted into a Mega Cab passenger compartment complete with leather seats.
Fuel capacity has also been added - lots. Total capacity can now reach up to 170 gallons by means of a second frame-mounted fuel tank as well as a third, optional bed-mounted auxiliary tank. That means fueling up would cost up to around 750 dollars given current gas prices in the U.S.
Powering the Ram Long-Hauler is an inline six-cylinder 6.7 liter High Output Cummins Turbo Diesel engine with around 800 lb.-ft. of torque (1083 Nm). Transmission is a six-speed Aisin AS68RC automatic and the Ram Long-Hauler is a four-wheel-drive, of course.
Total load capacity is 37,500 GrossCombinedWeight Rating (GCWR) - so that's quite an upgrade from a one-ton pickup.
The whole thing rides on a Kelderman air suspension and 19.5-inch Alcoa aluminum wheels.
Other amenities include Wi-Fi capability, a laptop storage area and a safe inside the cabin.

If you haul heavy trailers long distances then this is a must. Dodge doesn't make a mega cab long box and hasn't for a long time, so this may be their solution to that oversight.

Wow.

That is a great looking truck, and is VERY functional.

LOL
first thing, the auxiliary fuel tax is gonna have to be hidden...cab, tank, then bed just doesn't work for me....cab and bed should be all you should see
Second, Dodge needs to do something with those sissy looking clear cab lights, I hate em
Third, it needs real tow mirrors. If its gonna be made as a hauler, put actual tow mirrors on it. Like the ones on the 3rd Gen 3/4 1 tons. These mirrors are great if you have a 16' trailer, they suck if your pulling a 40' gooseneck
