Nope I don't think its a repost. As for the truck it looks great and other than the lack of hood scoops it looks pretty close to the rendered R/T that was revealed a while back. I wish the scoops could be offered as an option and I'll be sure to keep my eyes out for them out in the wild

wicked pick-up,
I see that Dodge treats pick-up customers more seriously than those who buy Challenger (leather wrapped-dash, new steering wheel, gear-shifter)

Oh ok I personally like the scoops but if they are not functional then don't offer them. And i bet the R/T models will be out and about in the wild pretty soon so I'll be sure to snap shots when I do see one

I'm just happy that they've got the guts to put out a great looking performance truck now, I wish Chevy would do the same. A regular cab short bed Silverado SS with the 6.2L and a six speed transmission would be awesome.

So is the Hemi R/T regcab going to be made for real? I am a Chevy truck guy 100% and never thought i would be a Dodge owner. But if the Hemi regcab R/T does come out then i am a buyer.

I don't like fullsize or EXT or crew cab trucks, i was hoping for a regcab 5.3 Colorado, but since no one will make a smaller v8 regcab i will have no choice but the bigger R/T.

A few mods and i could get close to 500hp with the R/T Hemi.

Mabye They are keeping the scoops for the SRT model.

Unfortunately, GM for the past 10 years or so has regarded single cab truck customers as second class citizens.

Dodge doesn't equate all single cab truck buyers with poverty.

I'm glad Dodge is the only one of the big 3 that can combine 'truck' and 'performance' in a single sentence......single cab too?! Man.....I hope Ford is taking a few things away for their forthcoming small trucks (Ranger, F100).....

Street performance trucks to me seem like the most counter-intuitive thing in all automotivedom. Performance is enhanced by being low, wide, light, and with an even weight balance. Trucks are tall, thin, HEAVY, and horribly unbalanced.

I know people love them, and hats are off to Dodge for building a product for this niche.

Ford's Raptor project is a little more in line with what I think a performance truck should be... raw offroad capability. The Dodge Power Wagon fit this bill as well, along with the Jeep Rubicon. Big beefy tires, offroad suspension, and not a lot of exterior dress-up.

I prefer trucks geared towards offroad capability too, but GM gave up on solid front axles a long time ago.

Then save your money. I have it on very good authority that Ford is developing an F-100 based Bronco. Key selling points are a solid front axle, folding windshield, and convertible top.

See now, that just pisses me off because I could never own a Ford. :D
