8 Lug Magazine names Carville's Auto Mart's Dodge Mega Cab as the "Baddest Truck on Earth"
"The 2007 Dodge 2500 Mega Cab pickup looks like it means business with the stacks and Attitude" - Jason Hardman of 8 Lug Diesel Truck Magazine
Chris Hall of Fat Boy Customs in Las Vegas Nevada built this one of a kind 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab which was purchase by Carville's Auto Mart in 2009. While you find that most show trucks lack in the performance and horsepower this Dodge Ram was an exception. This awesome ride is stunning with its $10,000 paint job, custom interior, an ear blowing stereo with a giant drop down LCD TV but what is under the hood it what made this truck so special. The 5.9L Cummins engine pumps out an astounding 1,185 lb-ft of torque and 607 hp, thanks to a host of speed parts, the most noticeable being the ATS Aurora Compund dual turbochargers installed by Alligator Diesel with help form Toxic Diesel. Dynamite Diesel 90 HP injectors keep the flow of fuel high enough, while the single CP3 pump is enough to get the job done. A custom intake with an aFe filter combines with an aFe Blade Runner manifold and MBRP Smokers with 67-inch stacks.
A Diablo Sport Predator tuner bumps up the power as well, and Haisley Machine H-II head studs were installed by Alligator Diesel to contain the beast. An RKL Performance 48RE transmission was installed by Toxic Diesel, along with an ATS Five Star torque converter. The trans has a custom valevebody, green clutches, a Trans Go kit, a billet flex plate and billit input shaft.
The King remote reservoir shocks provide a nice ride for the Rize Industries 8 inch lift kit. Rolling Big Power T901 wheels are wrapped with Toyo Open County tires for the perfect stance and look.
Carville's Auto Mart used the Truck as a demo and promotional piece at several events and fund raisers in the Grand Valley before it was offered up for sale to the public in 2012.
