2004 Dodge Ram SRT-10 - HoodOne of the most noticeable exterior features of the Dodge Ram SRT-10 is a unique hood that features a wide power bulge and scoop sitting atop the signature cross-hair grille. “Viper Powered” badges on either side of the hood scoop leave no doubt as to what resides underneath. Despite rocket-like straight line acceleration, the Ram SRT-10 was also designed to carve corners and challenge the laws of physics.

The engineers at PVO modified the rack and pinion steering system from a Dodge Ram Heavy Duty and custom tuned the independent front suspension. Working with the hydroformed Dodge Ram 1500 frame, one of the stiffest in the industry, PVO dropped the Ram SRT-10 one-inch in the front and 2.5-inches in the rear. New front and rear strut assemblies and a rear sway bar were added to handle the increased cornering loads and virtually eliminate body-roll. This is a truck that you can run to the store in, and then start tackling apexes on your favorite set of twisties. And, depending on your right foot, the V-10 can make the straightaways really short.

2004 Dodge Ram SRT-10 - SideTo make the most of the excellent handling characteristics of the Dodge Ram 1500, the PVO engineers added Bilstein mono-tube shock absorbers, a new front knuckle design and shorter and stiffer performance tuned springs.

Next came unique aerodynamic aids to keep the Ram SRT-10 planted at high speeds and 22-inch custom “Viper-style” wheels fitted with 305/40 R22 Pirelli Scorpion tires for extra adhesion.

The rear leaf springs were modified and leaf spring snubbers were added for smoother power launches. Big brakes, another Dodge Ram staple, are also modified on the Ram SRT-10. The standard ABS-equipped brakes are fitted with new 15-inch rotors on the front brakes. Rear brakes are modified Ram Heavy Duty with 14-inch rotors. Front and rear brakes feature unique red calipers. The new front fascia features NASCAR-inspired brake cooling ducts to provide plenty of cooling for track sessions. To ensure that the Ram SRT-10 makes the most of its 525 lb.-ft. of torque, PVO designed a unique power hop damper to stop axle hop under full acceleration runs. A Bilstein shock absorber was fitted between the frame and axle, and now clean launches, even on slicks, are just a right foot away.

2004 Dodge Ram SRT-10 - InsideInside, heavily bolstered racing-derived leather seats with suede perforated inserts and a carbon-fiber leather trim steering wheel let drivers know this no ordinary Ram. The “SRT-10” logo is embroidered on the headrests.

Silver trim adorns the center stack and a silver trim strip with an “SRT-10” badge resides on the passenger side air bag. A red Viper start button on the dash provides further evidence that this is something special.

A custom “Hurst” shift lever sprouts from a silver metal shift bezel and is topped by a Viper shift knob. Aluminum performance pedals replace the stock set up. A new gauge cluster with satin silver-faced gauges feature Viper font and graphics and appropriately recalibrated speedometer and tachometer to accommodate the SRT-10’s visceral performance. The carbon fiber-look trim on the leather steering wheel, satin silver center console and interior door handles and the unique door trim panels differentiate the SRT-10 from the standard Ram and create an environment that enhances the sport/performance feel of this truck. A 505 watt ear-melting sound system is also provided.
