2015 Ram 2500 AEV Build w/ Norweld Canopy :: Classifieds

Ram 2500 canopy

The Ram 2500 is one of the most popular full-size trucks on our forum (second only to the Toyota Tundra) with recent overland examples including this 2009 Cummins with a Four Wheel Campers Fleet, a 2001 with a 1984 Four Wheel Campers Fleet, and a 2020 Big Horn with a Hudson Bay Edition camper. The 2500 is the ideal platform for heavier builds, thanks to its powerful lineup of motors (including a 6.7-liter Cummins), up to a 4,000-pound payload, and a 16,440-pound-max towing capacity. If you’d like a better idea of how this platform can be outfitted for long-term travel, check out the builds from Rebel Outdoors, CJC Off Road, and No Limit BMORE. The 2500 is a favorite with the Expedition Portal team and was subsequently showcased as a project vehicle by Matt Swartz. Today’s 2015 offering has been built with rugged exploration in mind and showcases extensive premium modifications and is topped with a Norweld canopy.

From the Seller:

I’ve been spending a lot of time on a boat lately, and this has been sitting in storage (started and driven once a week). The truck’s mission is to either tow the Airstream trailer and support complete off-grid freedom or to stand alone as its own adventure machine. It has been carefully cared for with regular servicing only at certified Ram service centers.”
