Ram Truck owners may now transform their truck into a Mopar-powered desert racer. Just a little more than one year after Mopar debuted its Ram Runner image vehicle to much acclaim at the 2010 Moab Jeep® Safari, the brand announced today announced details of its new Ram Runner kit for off-road enthusiasts.

“At Mopar, our image vehicles showcase potential directions that we may take and the new Ram Runner kit is a good example,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO, Mopar, Chrysler Group’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “We saw the reception that Ram Runner received last year and quickly moved to offer kits that will allow off-road enthusiasts to transform their stock Ram 1500 into a desert racer.”

Today, Ram Trucks will be hosting a live chat session on at 6:00 p.m. EST. Our Ram engineers, along with our friends from Mopar, will be gathering around the table to discuss the topic of off-roading, including important details about our awesome Power Wagon and its off-road capabilities.

Mopar Performance will also be joining the conversation to answer questions about the mighty Mopar Ram Runner along with all its parts like lift kits, shocks, cold-air-intakes and other hardcore products.

These chats offer Dodge fans the opportunity to ask Ram engineers anything. You can participate in the chat in the window below:
