We generally show off high performance Cummins Turbo Diesel powered Dodge Ram pickups in our Black Friday segment here on DodgeForum but this week’s Tire Shredding Tuesday features a diesel Ram that deserves to be watched on Tuesday because – as the title indicates – this Ram literally shreds a tire. We feature a video of a Mopar car, truck or SUV every week doing a big nasty burnout but few of them actually shred their tires. This Ram, on the other hand, spins the tires long enough and hard enough to cause one of the rear tires to give up the fight.
This hard working Ram truck billows quite a bit of diesel soot while roasting the rear skins and creating massive amounts of tire smoke during this minute long burnout. Towards the end of the clip, this Ram appears to be done but the driver throttles back down for a few more seconds – just long enough to blow out the passenger’s side rear tire. This 1st generation Dodge Ram’s Cummins Turbo Diesel sounds as awesome as you would expect so make sure that your speakers are turned up and enjoy!
