I'm trying to recreate the 1:1 truck I have now:

Does anyone make a club cab short bed ram? I can use a 4dr quad cab if i absolutely have to, but I'd really like to go with a 2dr extended cab.

The only Rams that I know of are the AMT SnapFast kits long out of production, but they were both long bed regular cab versions.

There is also the ram vts by revell, but it's a reg cab short bed and has a v10 viper engine.

It is also oop but shouldn't be that hard to find.

Once upon a time there was a resin version of the Ram with a shortbed and extended cab but have not seen that in years. I believe the company was accu-pro out of Michigan.

Your best best would be to get 2 of the Ram VTS trucks and use the second cab to create the extended cab. You will have a leftover bed that could make a nice traier.

The thought of using the Dakota quarter windows has crossed my mind as well- I just never tried it because then I'd have an unbuildable Dakota. (I could raid the windows and convert it to a Durango... the Grand Caravan kit has the same taillamps, as the 1:1 '98-'03 Durango and '96-'00 Chrysler vans had the same taillamps... hmmmm....)

One of these days I'd like to kitbash the VTS with the AMT 2500. It would be a bit of work, and the intake is totally different on the production Ram V10, but still kinda sounds like a fun project!

Actually what you should do is make the Mexican-only 1999-2001 Dodge Ramcharger, since it also used the Caravan taillights (the non-US versions) and liftgate.

The Mexican Ramcharger also used the Caravan roof skin and liftgate- yeah- that one's on my list, too!

Mark- I'm pretty sure I'd mess something up. My hand isn't quite as steady as I wish it was.

Yes, it's a phantom. Dodge never produced anything like it.

At a Glance it is hard to tell but the left rear corner drops a bit.

I didn't noticed at first till some one mentioned it.

Geeeeeeeeeeesh, some people can till if something is off by 1/10 of a mm just by looking

at it. :):P

Accu Pro made a resin extended cab body. I have one as well as there regular Dodge V10 truck engine kit and their kit to convert a 2wd to 4wd. I have had these for about 10 years. I got them when I was getting some stuff together to build the Dodge Ram 6x6 concept truck.
