The RAM TRX Warlord 6x6 Can Be Your Trusty Steed In The Impending Apocalypse
Truck tuner Apocalypse mods the RAM TRX to rival the Hennessey Velociraptor
Centuries into the future, the world has turned to dust. Monuments of once a flourishing humanity lay into ruin beneath the arid soil. Radioactive fallout scar anyone who dare step up to the surface. The people who survive does so with metal pegs in place of legs and gasoline in their veins. And you, their leader, charge forward with the six-wheeled, 702-horsepower Apocalypse Warlord, its horns a portent of glorious retribution.
Or at least, that's what you'd probably feel if you get this truck.
In any case, Florida-based Apocalypse Manufacturing can turn your run-of-the-mill RAM 1500 TRX pickup into a chariot fit for tyrants living beyond the end. With a stock Hellcat engine and an extra axle at the back, this truck is pretty much an even more savage version of a pickup that shares a similar name to a dinosaur.
Yes, it's also full cab.
Besides the third pair of wheels and the bed lengthening required to accommodate them, Apocalypse has also put in 37-inch all-terrain wheels on all six of them connected to Bilstein shocks, plus a seventh to spare at the back. An additional $2,200 gives you 40-inchers, and can even be specced with a thermal night-vision camera for $5,200.
Joseph Ghattas, the owner of Apocalypse Manufacturing, is pretty stoked about the result of their "most ambitious project yet." “This build is as impressive as they come and perfectly aligns with the rest of our Apocalypse catalog of trucks.” Yes, catalogue. This isn't their first rodeo.
See, the company has been the mastermind of a few other 6x6 beasts based on the Jeep Gladiator, with designs and mods that epitomize the sort of "go big or go home" kind of man that Regular Car Reviews described in his review of the 1997 Dodge Ram. Turning the TRX into a 6x6, then, is all on-brand for this company.
How much will this be? $250,000, which is a lot of dough (for reference, the TRX starts at $70k) but that seems tame compared to the competition: Hennessey had the Mammoth 6x6, but they're only making three of them for half a million dollars a pop, while the build count for Apocalypse's Warlord is still an open question.
