Feeling blue? The owners of these beautiful pickups certainly are, and that’s a good thing. In fact, we’d argue taking a cruise in any one of these beauties would be the cure for just about any case of the blues. Check out these epic all blue truck paint schemes.
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.
MaxTrac Suspension recently added a new application to its extensive lineup of affordable 2WD lift systems. These new spindles fit the 2002-2008 Ram 2500/3500 2WD trucks, achieving 3.5 inches of lift and clearing many 35-inch-tall tire designations.
This simple bolt-on design requires no cutting or welding, keeping install time to less than 3 hours.

Also included are extended DOT-approved braided steel brake lines, instructions and all necessary hardware. MaxTrac backs the spindles with a limited lifetime warranty.

Adrian, MI (November, 2012) – VWerks, an off road parts manufacturer and specialty vehicle builder, debuted at the 2012 SEMA Show a new vehicle program, the Ram Baja KTS Series. Designed to merge high speed desert racing technology with jaw-dropping looks and daily-driver comfort, this exclusive new truck challenges the Ford Raptor for high-speed supremacy. Available in two different stages, the Ram KTS series was designed to cross any terrain at full throttle while the Ram Baja is aimed for truck enthusiasts who want the KTS’s menacing looks and stance, but don’t need long-travel race ready suspension.
“The Ford Raptor has been very successful and there hasn’t been a new, easily accessible Ram counterpart,” said Jeff Wyatt, CEO of Venchurs. “Whether you want an actual high speed desert racer, or an aggressive looking truck to drive you to and from work, VWerks has an option for you.”
