The Custom-Built Mega Ram Runner Truck

Custom-made by the DieselSellerz crew and MegaX2, the Mega Ram Runner was built from a rolled 2012 Dodge Ram 3500. The original truck has a 350-horsepower engine, but the crew modified it to nearly double its horsepower. The Mega Ram Runner made its first appearance at the SEMA show in 2014. Here are some of its awesome specs in addition to that 600-horsepower Cummins engine:

  • 6-door cab
  • 4 giant stacks in the bed
  • 4-speed transmission
  • Custom suspension with coilover shocks
  • 5-ton military axles
  • 40,000-pound towing capacity

The Companies: DieselSellerz and MegaX2

Who are the two companies behind this custom-built monster? Well, DieselSellerz is the world’s largest diesel truck classifieds community, connecting buyers and sellers of new and used trucks. In addition to this website, they also do truck giveaways from time to time. MegaX2, on the other hand, specializes in converting regular cabs into 6-door cabs. They’ve done some pretty cool conversions over the years, but this Mega Ram might just be the best one of all.

Started by Howard Marmon in Indianapolis, Indiana, Marmon’s high-end cars quickly gained a reputation of being speedy and reliable. The company lasted until 1933, but still lives on through their holding company, the Marmon Group.
