This Man Built His Own Hellcat-Powered Ram Pickup Before the Factory Could Release Its Own

Ram has been teasing a Hellcat version of its 1500 Rebel pickup for years now. While the truck has reportedly been green-lit for production, we still don't know much about it other than it'll resemble the TRX concept from 2016. One man decided he'd been waiting long enough, and built his own.

The 5thGenRams.com forum caught up with Charles, owner of this one-of-one Ram, to break down how his truck came to life. Charles said his goal was to build something that would resemble what the factory would create, rather than a totally custom truck with a bunch of aftermarket parts. The Fiberworks wide-body kit looks OEM, and instead of getting an aftermarket bumper, he had the OEM bumper stretched to match. He had Amercia's most wanted 4x4, a shop in Michigan, design the engine bay layout to look factory, meaning the intake on the driver's side. Parts from the Trackhawk, Charger Hellcat, and Demon are used throughout to ensure the engine stays cool and works as it should. It sounds as angry as any other Hellcat-powered car in Dodge's arsenal.

Rounding out the looks are a set of Method race wheels wrapped in 37-inch Nitto all-terrain tires and a massive decal on either side of the truck reading "Rebel Supercharged," which is fitting. We're curious to see just how similar the actual production version will be.
