SEMA 2010: Ram Runner – Click above for high-res image gallery

Ram is gunning for the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. The Chrysler pickup truck purveyor parked its Ram Runner under the spot lights at this year's SEMA show, and according to Pickuptrucks.com, the company plans to sell a kit to turn your very own Ram into the muddy beast you see above.

With suspension components from Kore and Fox Racing, wildly flared body work and a full safety cage inside, the goodies won't come cheap, but they should help the mighty Mopar keep pace with its Blue Oval competition. Look to spend around $11,000 for the suspension upgrades alone, but buyers should be able to snag some of the pieces a la carte.

If you're more interested in spending some time fishing or hunting, Ram also showed off its Outdoorsman. With a clever storage system for rifles or fishing rods, underbody protection for bumping around off road and a price tag that starts at $28,350, the truck is all you need to take home your next trophy.

      "That's true. Someone has one at the college I go to and I've never seen any dirt on it"

      My four-wheeler is the saaame way. There's never any dirt on it when it's parked.

      Ride 'em hard and put 'em away wet.

      Most people will keep their machines clean. It helps prolong the life!

      I would NOT call this a direct fighter to the Raptor as it is only showing off parts you can buy from Mopar performance, You wont be able to by this off the showroom floor from Chrysler. Either way another sweet truck from Dodge!

        I see you number among those who still call this the Dodge Ram. Me, too. I think they want us to call it a Ram Ram, though.

      "Outdoorsman" = meaning you step outdoors in the morning ? Failing to see the point of this pkg... I like the wheels though.

      And the 'Runner is all good, too bad the price premium is so steep. I dig the sway-bar setup up front.

      I knoew it was only going to be a matter of time till either GM or Chrysler came out with something to go after the Raptor

        it looks virtually the same my neighbor had some 15 years ago.

        Silly Ram, that's not a Raptor. Not even close.

      Every time I see something that resembles a raptor I end up looking at raptor pictures. If only I was rich enough to buy me this toy. I am sure I will trash it just like I trash my ninja in the twisties and my mustang at the track. Hopefully I ll get one from a soccer mom in a few years at half prize.

      This is what a truck should look like. If it's bought to be a toy, it should have big tires, coated in mud, with a few dents in the fenders. If it's bought to be a tool, it should be low enough to easily reach into the bed and it should be seen hauling heavy loads or packed full of tools. Low rider, pimped-up trucks with low-pro tires and big rims actually piss me off a bit.

      can't wait until i find someone with this "Ram Runner" package so I can show them how a real company makes a real truck aka the Ford Raptor (when i purchase one in a year or so) and i do plan use it as intended. I've seen two nearby my area and one has chrome sidings, i get disappointed every time i see it.

      This will never be as popular as the Raptor, but as least they are trying.

        > it will only be sold to those that will actually use it for its intended purpose
        do you seriously believe this crap? :P
        • 4 Years Ago
        @D57H: i can understand that... i just don't think trucks pick their drivers :)
        • 4 Years Ago
        Well maybe not but if I had another $11.000 lying around to throw at my truck I would use my purchase as intended!
        • 4 Years Ago
        That's true. Someone has one at the college I go to and I've never seen any dirt on it.
        • 4 Years Ago
        That is ok as it will only be sold to those that will actually use it for its intended purpose vs just being another mall crawler like most Raptors will be.
