I think it's a nice looking truck for sure, go get it. I don't think anyone will tell you it's a mistake if thats the truck you want considering it has the 5.7 and this is a dodge forum. The only question is, would it be cheaper to do it seperatley to a black ram sport? would it be worth the time and effort even if you do save a few bucks? those are the only two questions to really ask because looks aside you will be purchasing an amazing automobile if you get that truck.

Yea the Night Runner is nice but I have to agree with motorider is it worth the extra duckets. When you could do it yourself. I've been doing it sinice 04.

i wouldn't recommend it...i think dodge made a mistake with that truck...if they were gonna make a special edition like that, they should've AT LEAST put a whole ground effect kit on it (like the older hemi sport trucks) and an exhaust....you're better off getting a black one with chrome wheels and tint it out and thats it theres your own night runner!

well it cost about 850 to get the night runner and u get black grill black headlights and black chrome rims. the headlights alone will cost you alot. i just have to remove that cheesey night runner sticker makes the car so ugly.

then go for it if thats the look you're after. it's normally cheaper to just buy it from dodge than do it yourself with stuff like this. please do get rid of the night runner sticker or badging because that stuff is ugly.

my girl has a lowered r/c night runner with custom exhaust (magnaflow muffler with a downturn) ground force lowering kit and two tone katzskins leatehr interior with the night runner logo stiched into the seats.

the headlights on this truck run about 900 for the pair.

the 20 inch regular wheels are I belive 250ish a peice from mopar... black chrome i am sure is extra.

debaging can be a pain and will leave shadows on your doors.

night runner sticker ... not sure on the price... note it is reflective unlike the trx4/rumblebee etc stickers.

No way you can do this on a regular 1500 for less than what dodge did it for.

P.S. may be putting some chrome 22's on that puppy.

The only thing I'm not liking are the wheel, but I've always like chrome rims. The best advice on buying a new vehicle, test drive it, park it in your drive way and if you think it's worth it, then it is.

I think it's a sweet truck. It definitely looks better in person than in pictures (and I think it looks pretty nice in pictures). I recently bought a 4x4 QC Night Runner and did exactly what dtharp suggested. I took it home on an overnight test drive so I could have more time to look at it outside the dealership and see what I thought about it in different lighting and the next morning. I personally think the "black chrome" wheels look very nice and complement the truck perfectly.
A ground effect kit would not look right on this truck, at least the 4x4, which has the look of an offroad truck (definitely looks the 4x4 part).
I also like the "factory debadged" doors. Like others have said, if you like it buy it... it's not a big price to pay for the package you are getting; and the black bezeled headlights are sweet!

Default Its a cool truck but about the rims...

All Dodge 20" wheels are crappy plastic chrome cladded wheels. You could get a black SLT Ram truck and get some real good forged wheels to put on it. Forged wheels will be ALOT lighter and stronger. This ='s more hp to the road.

Just a thought.

Which model of the night runner are you getting? I are you going to go with the SLT version with the HEMI or the SRT-10 Version?

I have to agree with the people in here. I think if they added the daytona, rumble body or early thunderroad body package it would be sweet, But as is, it just looks like a modified stocker. Blackened headlights can be found on the bay for cheap. As well as black grills and so on. I see nothing so great they way they sell it.


When I bought my stocker, I didnt go crazy and just bought it normal. I then went on the bay and bought all the addons for far less and did it myself. For example those chrome door handles they sell at the dealer are mere abs plastic crap. The ebay ones are stainless steel. The same applies to the gas door covers = plastic crap. Ebay ones are billet and a complete gas door change. Not mere cover.

Yes they do. Go to dodge's web site and under the "build your own" select the srt-10 and under options they have an option for the night runner package. Its an extra grand or two for it though
