we call it Euro,...
Thanks. I call it not dollars so not important
ahhh,... i dont care,.. i like em all,.. Euro, dollar, rand, franks,... as long u can buy a SRT-10 for it,..
..it's an eyesore............ Fixed it for ya!
Truthfully I would have done it with a junkyard damaged repairable ( my o2) I can recomend a good therapist for the guy that completely fucked up a 10 Its his dollar ( euro) so " ce la vie" "You can drive around the world in reverse, it doesnt make it right"
Hey guys, dont beat him too hard...
We have several things (called laws) that hinder us from doing a real rat rod car / truck.
All of the things Carl draw up, we like as well, but we are not allowed to drive on the street. So the truck is a compromise between what is possible and still street legal to what we understand as coming as close as possible to a Rat Ram theme.
All the best
Now you just need a euro tags that reads EYESORE ;-) cool build as long as you like it
I think either EYESORE or WRECK (short for wrecker) of course!
I like that concept a lot.
With this, its all about personal preference and the fact that its your truck...you paid for it....do what you wanna do.
I wouldnt do it to mine but its different and kinda cool.
even this truck looks better
That farm truck is bada$$
Does it still have the 10 engine in it & if it does, is it stock? If it doesn't what are you running in it. Remember: Different Strokes for Different Folks. That's the reason most of us have different colored trucks & have done different mods to them. I don't like sissy steps, but some guys do.
once more for everyone : This is not my truck. It belongs to one of the European SRT owners who belongs to the VTCOA section Germany.
The truck of course has the VIPER SRT10 engine and T56 six speed inside.
It used to be a silver RC SRT10 which was modified according to the pics you saw.
Is it ugly ? Yes to most of the people !
Is it modified ? Yes, extreme on the body (as seen on the pics), mild on the engine with throttle body, mopar LT, Borla Cat back, CAI and tune by Torrie
and some lowering by DJM arms, plus lowering blocks in the back.
Weight reduction vs. stock : approx. 670 pounds
Is it fun to drive : hell, yes !!!!!
Motto : not a ratrod as most of you write on here (because it will never be street legal in germany), just a Rat Ram according to the laws that are given !
Think of it like this : whatever you like on the ratrod them from carlwalski earlier in this thread, it is unfortunately forbidden in Germany....
The Dodge Ram SRT10 has never been built for Germany thats why there is only the Dodge official paper documenting what is ok or not ok on the truck, therefore our technical inspection does not allow anything besides the original. So for us to find some backdoors is very hard and not easy.....
Do i like it ? Yes, but i would never do it to my truck.....
I think a lot of people are forgetting that the laws in Germany prevent the RatRam owner from doing the modifications necessary to make it an actual ratrod. I like the idea, and I give credit to the owner for having the balls to go forth with the idea on his truck. But honestly, it could have been better thought out. The theme on that truck is a mess.

U P D A T E - the RATRAM has a few more seats
Please have a look at the pictures and judge for yourself.
Alex (owner) kept the frame of the RC and installed the QC housing.
With some minor mods it was an easy install.
The biggest issue was to shorten the sides of the bed to fit it to
the new dimensions of the QC housing.
Now it has to stay outside to gain some rust again.....
hate to say it, like that setup:rock::rock::rock:
