You guys have got a chance to own one of only 500 Viper-powered pickup trucks ever to be made in this special yellow paint. This is a 2005 dodge Ram SRT-10 Yellow Fever Edition with only 413 miles on the famous Viper-sourced V10 engine.
The Ram TRX is insanely powerful and cool. However, it’s still not as special as the Ram SRT-10, a high-powered sports truck that shocked the world in the Y2Ks. Every truck guy secretly wants to own one of these.
The SRT-10 is pretty rare and expensive, but the Yellow Fever Edition is even harder to find. Dodge made 500 units, 300 four-door models, and 200 2-door models like this one. I think the 2-door Regular Cab looks better. Don’t you agree?
The beauty is #165 out of 500 and is currently being sold on Bring a Trailer with only 413 miles on the clock. It’s got a clean title and with about a day to go, bidding is currently only at $40,000. It could be worth at least twice that in a few years.
What color is that?
The Yellow Fever Edition Rams have a specific finish, Solar Yellow (PYH). It’s really cool to see this in combination with the SRT-specific rear spoiler, body cladding and thick sports truck bumper. Solar Yellow, in case you’re wondering, was also on the Viper, the Neon SRT-4 and even the Dakota.
For this particular model, black graphics have been optioned on the domed hood, and they go nicely with the Medium Slate Gray leather and suede interior, which has yellow accents and stitching.
An SRT-10 sits lower than the normal Ram truck, but this suspension is standard, as are the 22-inch polished lightweight wheels, which have been wrapped in 305/40 Pirelli Scorpion Zero tires. Much like that yellow Dodge Charger that Car Wizard bought, this comes with a yellow dash.
Inside, you also see an oil temperature gauge on the A-pillar. Said oil is located inside an 8.3-liter V10 borrowed from the earlier Viper models. It produces a chunky 500 horsepower and 526 lb-ft of torque. Unlike the TRX, the SRT-10 is RWD and comes with a manual gearbox, the Tremec T-56 six-speed with a Hurst shifter. This sports car of Ram trucks also has a Dana 60 rear axle with a limited-slip differential. It’s almost a shame not to drive this the way it’s supposed to.
