Look Back Video: This Review of The 2004 Ram SRT-10 Is A Reminder Of How Cool They Are

Maybe it was the overall look, maybe it was the engine, maybe it was the six speed stick, I don’t really know. What I do know is that at 24 years old, with a decent job, and no kids yet, I was one decent salesmen away from buying one of these trucks and when I watch this MotorWeek review, I am reminded why. Hell, I’m reminded why I keep peeking on eBay and seeing what they are going for these days! For starters, I liked the earlier version of this truck more than the later one. I wanted the short bed, single cab, not the later crew cab version that came out. These things speak to me. Don’t judge!

I think it is probably the idea of the truck more than the truck itself that gets me cranked up. Someone had to fight to make this a reality and at the always teetering Chrysler that must have been one hell of a fight. It is tough to saw whether or not the company made a dime on these rigs but when you look at them from an assembly point of view, they did offer a V10 in this chassis, they did offer a stick in this chassis, so at the end of the day, additional expenses may have been minimized.

These trucks can be had for decent money on eBay these days. I suppose getting one that has not been redneck hammered to death will be the hard part but I plan to keep on looking. Sometimes that itch just never goes away.

Press play to see this 2004 Ram SRT-10 get hammered on!

    We have a used car lot in town that always gets new cool stuff within months of it being sold new. A few months after these came out they had one. A friend of mine and I cashed in a favor and got the keys. It was a little underwhelming, i don’t know if I was just too hyped up about or that the weight watered down the 500HP V10 that much. However damn could it stop, and it was surprisingly easy to get it to hook up and go it just didn’t go like I was expecting. Still damn fun to drive.
