In the days before every Dodge offered the optional 707hp Hellcat engine (Hey, I'm not complaining here!), the brand's top dogs carried the identifier SRT-10. At the top of the food chain was the Viper SRT-10. Its offspring, the RAM 1500 SRT-10, was the most powerful production truck Dodge ever produced.

Available only from 2004-2006, the Ram 1500 SRT-10 was home to the same 8.3-liter V10 engine, which was first used in the Viper. This performance-bred engine produced 500 hp at 5,600 rpm and 525 lb⋅ft of torque at 4,200 rpm.

This silvery example offered by Ryno seller Kane Anderson sits smack dab in the middle of that 3-year production run and is one of only 280 built in a Bright Silver hue and only 90 built with the cover and wing.

The SRT-10 1500 was one of the quickest stock sport trucks around in its day, and this low-mile hauler has even more muscle for the hustle, thanks to long-tube headers, Magnum exhaust, cold-air intake and a hopped-up engine-control module.

If a four-door Viper with a bed large enough to haul a small zoo is your idea of the perfect way to get from point A to point B, while having a guaranteed collectible to sock away down the road, then be sure to check this snake-biting Ram out. It is Ryno Classifieds "car" of the week.
