BAD ASS SUMMER TRUCKS

If you’re looking for a sweet new toy this summer, check out the 1977 Dodge Ramcharger. Idling firmly in the shadow of the incredibly popular Jeep Bronco, the Ramcharger is just as bad ass, and certainly more unique. Produced between 1974 and 2001, it was succeeded by the Dodge Durango in 2004. Affectionately labeled the “Rhino” during development, the Ramcharger is a beast with rugged good looks, a powerful V8 and removable hard top. I like that it sits a bit higher and wider than the trendy Bronco. The best looking models are from 1977 & 1978, after that, the classic rounded headlights switched to a more boxy 80’s look. Keep in mind, these rugged old-timers aren’t highway friendly, they’re best suited for short trips to the beach, or as a permanent resident at your mountain retreat, loyally waiting for that next fly fishing trip. Here are a few favorites:
