SEMA: Ram 1500 Sun Chaser wants to go to the Beach

Have you ever wished that your new Ram pickup truck had a tailgate seat and a shower?  Perhaps, you are a beach going life guard?  Ram and Mopar have a solution for you with this Ram 1500 Sun Chaser concept truck for 2013 SEMA show.

Yep, Mopar is bringing a clever “Flip-Up” seatback tailgate accessory.  It’s basically a contoured plastic bench with a seatback.  This can be handy at the beach, a football game, or anywhere else for that matter.  The RamBox bed compartment contains a water tank with a hose and a shower head.  This water tank can be clipped to the “surf rack” on top and provides a quick, make shift, gravity fed shower.  Tubular side steps and a “bed step” help you reach the rack.  The “surf rack” has sliding supports and can hold a long surf board.

This concept pickup is sporting a life guard worthy Vibrance Orange / Brilliant Black two-tone paint job.  The truck is sitting higher with a 2-inch lift and new 17×8 beadlock wheel and beefy tires to help the heavy truck float in the sand.  There are also Mopar fender flares with manly exposed fastening bolts.  The 5.7-liter HEMI sits under the “sport performance hood” and exhales via a Mopar cat-back performance exhaust system.

This is a cool concept that brings together many Mopar truck accessories in a cohesive package.  Hopefully, customer will soon be able to order these individual components from Mopar.
