Why We Like It

These burly sport trucks were created by Daimler/Chrysler’s Performance Vehicle Operations division and were produced in limited numbers from 2004 to 2006. The engineers were the same ones that developed the Viper and Prowler models, and they decided to shove the Viper’s 8.3L V10 into the truck. Extensive wind tunnel testing was used to develop its distinctive styling that includes an integrated hood scoop, revised front bumper with larger air dam, side skirts, and a functional rear spoiler mounted to a bed cover.

This example is being sold by the original owner and has been driven inly 18k miles from new. It’s finished in Brilliant Black Crystal and the original 22” alloy wheels remain in place. A Medium Slate Grey interior features leather and Ultrasuede upholstery, deep-bolstered sport seats, power-adjustable pedals, a Hurst short shifter, and a factory A-pillar mounted oil temp gauge.

The factory Tremec T-56 6-speed manual transmission has been upgraded to a Stage 2 version by the seller.

Five of these trucks have sold on Bring a Trailer in 2020, including a 7k mile one for $34,500 and a 4k mile example for $34k. Hagerty currently values a #3 SRT-10 at $27,200, and a #2 example at $37,100, which is a bit higher than what we see them sell for on the open market. Even with the low mileage, the seller has priced this Ram SRT-10 a little higher than the current fair market value, but they are definitely getting harder to find in this color combo and this one has been extremely well taken care of. We think it’s worth the premium to get this babied example that includes all of the original purchase documents and window sticker.
