This legendary 4×4 has been upgraded with a supercharger on top of its 5.7-liter engine, effectively boosting the horsepower to a whopping 550 and the torque to 530 foot-pounds. And with a few more upgrades, according to little-known German tuning company GME, you could even bump that up to a whopping 900 horsepower.
But why stop there? GME also added a new air-water-air intercooler and an electric refrigerant pump to keep things chill. Another notable upgrade is in the 1500’s suspension, which now comes with a 9.5-inch lift kit alongside height-adjustable FOX suspension struts. A ton of other suspension upgrades are here as well to keep the Dodge Ram 1500 as smooth as possible.
You get wheels with 20-inch rims and 37-inch Toyo off-road tires. They’re so massive that GME had to customize the wheel fenders. Moreover, to allow passengers to hop in easily, GME installed a set of motorized running boards, offsetting the added height. In addition, there’s a new exhaust system to accentuate the forced-induction engine’s sound. These involve remote-controlled valves inside the pair of 2.99-inch (76-millimeter) diameter pipes, letting owners tune the noise to their preference. GME has also added Xenon headlights, replacing the original halogen illumination.
The Dodge Ram 1500 Bigfoot Edition, as you can see from the photos below, looks truly majestic. We can only imagine what it would feel like to drive one. GME has yet to provide pricing details, but you can be sure you’ll be turning heads when you tear up the road with this bad boy.LEARN MORE HERE
