It’s SEMA time again and Ram is ramping up with this 2500 Outdoorsman edition. Loosely based on the 1500 Outdoorsman, this truck gets some of the same touches of Mossy Oak camo while the majority of its exterior is coated in Swamp Thing Green paint. Ram says the 2500 Outdoorsman’s color scheme makes it a perfect vehicle to make base camp with as it blends into its surroundings.

Ram has shown some pretty innovative bed solutions at past SEMA events, and this year seems to be no different. Installed here are “utility hoops” that have been used to support ladders and surfboards on past trucks. Now they serve as a framework for the bed tent. Also seen before on the 2013 Ram Sun Chaser is the concept Mopar roof rack and “Flip-up” seatback tailgate. That last feature smartly converts the tailgate into a bench seat with a fold-up seatback.

Besides the Swamp Thing paint and camo, the 2500 Outdoorsman is set apart by the 17-inch, bead-lock wheels wrapped in 35-inch BFGoodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM2 tires. Bilstein shocks and a Mopar leveling kit help the suspension keep up with the other changes. Mopar fender flairs keep mud off the paint and a side step helps ease access to the cab. A 12,000-pound winch is borrowed from the Ram Power Wagon and hides behind the black-painted front bumper.

Look for the 2500 Outdoorsman as the SEMA show gets underway in Las Vegas November 4th through 7th.

Visible here are the beefy 35-inch BFG mud terrain tires mounted on the black-and-satin, 17-inch, bead-lock wheels. The bead-lock wheels are designed to keep the tire on the wheel even with very low pressure. This helps the tire grip better in loose terrain. The bead lock works by pinching the tires bead between the wheel and the outer ring held on by all the bolts.

Though Ram’s press release doesn’t say anything about it, the 2500 Outdoorsman features the same 12,000-pound Warn winch as the Ram Power Wagon. Integrated behind the front bumper, the winch offers peace of mind when traveling through hard terrain. And because the winch is present, that means the massive 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel is not. Sadly for truck guys everywhere, the Cummins’ intercoolers live right where the winch goes. So this 2500 truck will be boasting the new-for-2014 6.4-liter, HEMI V-8.

For Ram owners who love to head into the wild, the Ram 2500 Outdoorsman elevates the capability of the heavy-duty pickup to the next level. Creating the perfect base camp, the Ram 2500 Outdoorsman is built to blend in with its surroundings with the help of Mopar products and unique camouflage design touches.

Inspired by the Ram brand’s relationship with outdoors outfitter Mossy Oak®, the Ram 2500 Outdoorsman’s unique “Swamp Thing Green” color is further disguised with distinct “camo” flourishes. A Mossy Oak Bottomland camouflage pattern design is smartly applied to the hood, roof and along the length of the lower body.

Three utility hoops used on past SEMA show vehicles as ladder or surfboard racks are reinvented as a camouflaged bed tent, providing shelter from nature’s wrath or extra storage space for gear. Elements pulled from the popular Ram Sun Chaser 2013 SEMA show vehicle include a concept Mopar roof rack and the concept “Flip-Up” seatback tailgate, which converts into a two-seat bench by folding back toward the cab. The RamBox is loaded with Mopar accessories, and a step-assist off the rear bumper helps to access the bed.

The Ram 2500 Outdoorsman sits on Mopar concept 17-inch, eight-lug bead lock wheels, which are capable of dealing with challenging terrain, especially when coupled with aggressive 35-by-12.50-inch R17 Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 BFGoodrich tires. Mopar’s fender flares at the front and rear provide a muscular impression, and the Ram 2500 Outdoorsman can roll with anything thanks to a Mopar leveling kit and Bilstein shocks.
