Hellcat-powered Ram Rebel already unofficially exists. After waiting years for Ram to build a 707-hp pickup, a Mopar enthusiast decided he’d rather commission his own axle-snapping creation.Posted to the 5thGenRams forum, user DieselDak (his real name is Charles) shared photos of his personal Rebel TRX build. The truck is based on a 2019 Ram Rebel and packs a 707-horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V-8 under the hood. Swapping the Hellcat engine into the Ram was not a simple task.
Charles worked with the crew at America’s Most Wanted 4×4 in Holly, Michigan to create the truck. The shop had to remove the cab from the frame to fit the bulky V-8 in the engine bay without removing the supercharger. The oil filter needed had to be relocated, the fuel system was upgraded to properly feed the thirsty engine, cooling systems had to be upgraded, and the electrical system had to be tweaked as well.
In the video below, we get a pretty interesting teaser of what the Rebel TRX might just look like.
