This week’s Muddy Mondays feature looks at what appears to be a fairly stock 2005 Dodge Ram Quad Cab powered by the 5.7L Hemi V8 in what is more of a small pond than a big mud puddle. This Ram appears to be of stock ride height with some aftermarket wheels and mud tires – which almost weren’t enough to allow this half ton Ram to dig out of the deep mud.
When this 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 eases into the mud and water, it only takes some 15 seconds for the nose to dip into the water as the truck appears to be stuck. Through some fairly poor camera work (seriously – what is the cameraman looking at?), we see the driver of the Ram wiggle back and forth a bit before just letting the Hemi rip with the four wheel drive system slowly pulling the truck out the other side of the deep mud pit.
While it started off looking like this Ram might need some help climbing out of the mud, the Hemi kept digging and this Dodge beat the mud pit – all while creating a pretty impressive mud geyser off of the driver’s side front wheel.
