The Ram Truck brand is paying homage to hard workers with a new Thanksgiving commercial that will air later today during traditional holiday NFL football games on CBS and FOX.
Sure, Texas might be the pickup truck capital of the world, but the world record for the longest pickup truck parade was recently set at the Nürburgring in Nürburg, Germany, where 1,152 Dodge Ram pickup trucks filed into the ring and made their way around the track to set a new world record. Pretty cool if you ask us, and even more impressive is the fact that it was in Germany where pickup trucks are not nearly as common as they are here in the states. Check out some photos from the world record setting event with Ram trucks.
People tend to do dumb things when they have an audience, whether it’s behind the wheel of a side-by-side, Jeep, truck or pre-runner. We’re betting this guy wishes he hadn’t brought his daily driver to the Hemet Huckfest… but for entertainment’s sake, we’re sorta glad he did.
You couldn’t walk more than 5 feet at this year’s SEMA Show without seeing or bumping into a truck. Trucks greeted SEMA Show attendees at hall entrances, and the edges of each side of the convention center, and they were pretty much everywhere you looked.

Fabs Fours has built some wild concept builds in the past, but the Kymera might take the cake. Based on a 2015 Colorado, the truck was one of the many vehicles the company owned that was just sitting in its warehouse. Fab Fours CEO Greg Higgs was struck with an idea for the truck after pushing some oversized tires past it one day. He went back and sketched out his idea… and from there, Kymera was born.

INGLEWOOD, Ca. – PML recently introduced its new bolt-on replacement front differential cover for Dodge Ram 2500 (2014 and newer), and Ram 3500 (2013 and newer).

Auburn Hills, Mich. – FCA US LLC will cease NAFTA-market production of vehicles equipped with non-desiccated ammonium-nitrate Takata air-bag inflators, by next week. Global production is expected to end by mid-September.
Most inflators used in FCA US vehicles employ alternate propellants. Others use desiccant-enhanced ammonium nitrate. Neither is associated with any inflator ruptures of the kind attributed to certain non-desiccated ammonium-nitrate inflators.
