    Hi,

    I herewith want to introduce you to Tom and his fabulous build of a
    RAM SRT10 ACR-X version of our beloved trucks.

    Tom is a member of the German chapter of the VTCOA and below you can find some details about what he has achieved during a 5 month almost full time built time of his truck.

    He has been searching quit a bit for a low mileage and crash free SRT10. Now after his third SRT10 he finally found the right one to do the transformation project....:rock:

    Ram SRT-10 RC; black ; 32T mls; bone stock (except a LPG Gasinjection)

    Idea :
    Ram SRT-10 in a grey/black ACR-Viper Look (AmericanClubRacing) with priority on performance and look.:D

    OEM steering wheel modified by a company in Germany.
    They do upholstery work as well as changing the metal work for the steering wheel.

    Best regards

    I love that truck. If it was mine, I'd put the tailgate back on and stripe it and the rear bumper. I'd also get someone to make a custom front splitter with struts for it out of real carbon fiber. The rest of the truck is sick.

    Hi, talked to Tom !

    It bolted all right up. He changed all 05 parts to 06 parts in the front, thats it.

    all the best
