Throughout the last half of the 20th Century and extending into the 21st, our country has had an on-again, off-again love affair with redneck culture. Urban Cowboy begot The Dukes of Hazzard which bled into the Ernest movies, which, in turn, paved the way for the long locks of Joe Dirt and Kid Rock. These days Duck Dynasty is the ignoble standard bearer for the hillbilly way of life – a group that would undoubtedly feel right at home in the latest offering from Ram, the 2014 Ram 1500 Mossy Oak Edition.

Custom designed for the hunters, fishers and other outdoors-folks that make up the Ram customer base (according to the company's press release) the latest instantiation of the Mossy Oak boasts a liberal daubing of camouflage. The camo rides on top of your choice of Black, Black Gold Pearl, Prairie Pearl and with either a Canyon Brown or Frost Beige interior. All of the Mossy Oak Edition trucks are 4X4s with a Crew Cab body, perfect for hauling your hunting buddies out into the wild places of the world.

Fashionable redneck culture doesn't come cheap apparently; the Ram 1500 Mossy Oak Edition starts at $39,985 with a $1,195 destination fee.

2014 Ram 1500: Mossy Oak® Edition Returns to Ram Lineup

After a brief, one-year hiatus, the Ram 1500 Mossy Oak® Edition is returning to the truck brand's model lineup.

Updated for 2014, the Mossy Oak Edition will now be available for the first time with the RamBox cargo management system, in both 6-ft.-4-in. and 5-ft.-7-in. bed lengths.

Originally introduced to the Ram Truck family in 2011, the Mossy Oak Edition is designed for enthusiasts who are passionate about the great outdoors.

The 2014 Ram 1500 Mossy Oak Edition further extends the multi-tiered relationship between the Ram Truck brand and America's top camouflage brand.

"Ram Truck is focused on the needs and wants of truck buyers," said Reid Bigland, President and CEO, Ram Truck Brand – Chrysler Group LLC. "Our Ram Truck owners are passionate about hunting and fishing. The Ram Mossy Oak Edition gives hunting enthusiasts a way to proudly proclaim their love for the outdoors."

Ram 1500 owner demographics illustrate a love for the outdoors: 30 percent hunt, 44 percent fish, 27 percent are boaters and 42 percent are campers.

"The Ram Truck brand has been a great partner to Mossy Oak," said Ronnie "Cuz" Strickland, Executive Vice President of Mossy Oak. "The people there love trucks, but they're also into hunting and fishing and understand that their customers are, too. To have Ram take that relationship to the next level by offering a special Mossy Oak Edition speaks volumes about their commitment to hunters and Outdoorsmen and women, and we are extremely proud to partner with them."

The Ram 1500 Mossy Oak Edition's bedcaps and tailgate are covered in Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity® camouflage pattern, and the Mossy Oak logo is prominently displayed on the rear quarter panels. Break-Up Infinity-patterned lower cladding is also available.

Inside, the center column of the Ram's instrument panel is finished in Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity, as are the door panel inserts. The Mossy Oak logo is embroidered on the four primary headrests. Buyers also can opt for Espresso Tuscany-colored Katzkin leather seats with Mossy Oak seatback embroidery.

The Ram Mossy Oak Edition is available exclusively as a Ram 1500 4x4 Crew Cab model, and is based on the popular Ram Outdoorsman.

Ram 1500 Mossy Oak Edition available colors include Black, Black Gold Pearl and Prairie Pearl monotone exterior, paired with Canyon Brown and Frost Beige interior.

Ram Mossy Oak Edition trucks will arrive in dealerships in early 2014. Ram Mossy Oak Edition pricing starts at $39,985, plus $1,195 destination charge.

      We know who Ram is marketing this vehicle to, and the plastered on leafs and green paint doesn't cut it. Needs more options fit toward people who are "woodsman". More aggressive suspension, tires, locking diffs, rugged interior, and less chrome. Ram already makes that Truck though, it's called the "Power Wagon". Just call this one the "Duck Dynasty" edition and get it out your system Ram (Dodge).

      Wrong move Dodge. I have gotten my fill of everything Dork Dynasty just from going to the local Walmart and seeing the fuzzy faced clowns on more products than I can count. I feel sorry for any fool dumb enough to but this thing. Never mind all the looks of disgust from everyone you see on the road, while driving this thing. It just means you're COOL.

        You do realize that Mossy Oak and outdoorsmen in general were around long before the A&E show, and they will be around long after it is off the air. This edition has nothing to do with the TV show Duck Dynasty.

      Besides been tacky, that's one awful copy and paste job in that camo pattern. I can do a better job in 5 minutes.

      Yep, still awful up-close. And -25 internet points for lazy execution. That looks like a crappy dealer add-on package.

        That sounds like the market this truck caters to: Hey Bob, guess what, I got a lightweight truck with a small engine!

      I hope the valve caps are in the shape of shotgun shells.

      Was it really so hard to find a continuous camo graphic? The cutting & pasting doesn't really do it for me.
