THE 702 HP RAM 1500 TRX TRANSFORMS TO GOLD SHOT STATUS FOR SEMA.
In Mopar’s 85th anniversary the aftermarket division of Stellantis the brand has created three concept vehicles to debut at this year’s 20222 instalment of the world’s largest aftermarket show - SEMA. We recently had a closer look at the Jeep that was transformed for the show, the CJ Surge, but the company know its supporters want interesting builds on some of their other products. For their sizeable RAM 1500, the aftermarket treatment is quite extensive and the result that will be shown off at SEMA looks pretty damn impressive. This one has been dubbed the Ram 1500 TRX Gold Shot Concept and it takes the top dog in the fleet, the monstrous Ram 1500 TRX to another level with some pretty cool additions. It’s a tall task to modify one of these things, especially when you consider that the truck comes from the factory with an insane 702 horsepower on tap.
The base for the Gold Shot is the bonkers 702-horsepower Ram 1500 TRX, but it’s been customised to aim at the motocross enthusiast and so there’s easy access for a pair of motorcycles in the truck bed via a Mopar bed step that lowers for easy access it can retract out of the way for storage. The truck’s bed surface is protected by a black, Mopar spray-in textured bedliner to keep it looking fresh even after loading dirty FMX bikes. The Gold Shot rides up on 18-inch Back Rhino Chamber wheels in a Vintage Bronze colourway wrapped in massive 37-inch BF Goodrich rubber. We also find a RamBar featuring a pair of concept 14-inch rectangular 4 30 lumen TYRI LED lights, front and rear underside metal skid plates featuring laser-etched Mopar lettering and the sides feature Mopar rock rails. Changes to the cabin includes Alaska Gold stitching and accents throughout the interior cabin, sport seats wrapped in Capri leather with perforated Alcantara suede inner bolsters and there’s also Gold Spinneybeck leather chaser stripes across the seats as well as TRX logos on the upper back panels and Mopar logos on the outboard shoulder bolster.
