Truck engineers flex their brains for muscle truck

Ram Rebel TRX concept, on display at the Texas State Fair, is an extreme half-ton pickup that offers a range of features that could someday grace a factory-supplied machine. These exercises in automotive design - the concept vehicle - are fun to check out and offer insight into the future of truck design. We're having a little fun with this to show off just how crazy truck engineers can be.

Pickups are a big part of farm life. This machine, while not a work truck, is definitely a fun hobby idea. It's not real, and is being shown off as a design exercise, but you can learn a lot about future machines from concepts engineers out for public view.

Check out the images, and read the specs for this true "monster truck" and while it's only a concept, and not built on a heavy duty platform there are some farmers that might want one similar to this parked in their garage someday.
