American Expedition Vehicles showed off its simply named Ram Concept at this year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Starting with a 2014 Ram 2500 Crew Cab and a 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel, the Michigan-based team at AEV, which has made a name for itself building ultra-capable Jeeps, promises that this Ram is a "complete vehicle package."

As part of that "complete vehicle package," the AEV Ram has been lifted three inches in front and two in the back, in order to give it a level ride. The suspension tweaks don't end there, though, as the geometry has been changed and custom shocks fitted, while AEV modified the truck's steering to make it more precise.

It rides on massive BF Goodrich rubber and 17-inch AEV wheels. The front bumper is from stamped steel and can accommodate a winch and auxiliary lights, as needed. Other body mods include flared fenders that can handle the larger rubber.

We've got a gallery of live images of the AEV Ram Concept from the SEMA show floor, and you can read more about the brutish pickup in our original piece from earlier this week.

      I'm not into domestics, but this truck is pretty cool.

        I accidentally down-voted you. Damn these buttons ! I agree with you. I live deep in the mountains and I would love one of these RAM's.

      Super skimpy on the details with this truck. I see switches for ARBs front and rear as well as what looks like either twin or remote reservoir front shocks. There have got to be more goodies hiding out underneath this beast.

        That is slick placement for those ARB switches. No one has had much info on the suspension, aside from it using the OE coils. It looks like it retains the OE radius arm, rather than a two-piece arrangement like the Power Wagon now has.

      I just can't see this doing well offroad, the nearly 8000 lbs would just be terrible on a trail. Short of massively wide tires it would just sink. Now a Powerwagon version of the 1500 diesel would probably be awesome.

      I'd take a Ram Power Wagon first, but this one and the Raptor would be a close second. Unfortunately, my pockets aren't deep enough for a crew cab Raptor, but I can swing a Power Wagon.

      I have only limited use for a rig like this, but really "need" a replacement for the F250 HD I sold a few years ago. An AEV Ram like this one would fit the bill just right...especially with those F430'esque seats!
