Oftentimes when we build something really cool, the next thing we build is totally different. Nick Ellis of Tarboro, North Carolina, did the same thing. After selling his 'bagged 1998 Camaro, he wanted to build something outrageous. Looking at his Ram, we can confidently say that he accomplished his goal. Sitting on 20 inches of lift and 53-inch tires, this Ram rides high above the North Carolina asphalt. Combine that with massive bumpers, custom bodywork, and more than 1,000 lb-ft of torque and you have a monster that anybody would love to drive.
