Overland Classifieds :: 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel

The 1500 Rebel made waves when it was released in 2015 and again when the company announced the 2500 version. The Rebel offered Ram customers a heavy-duty diesel-powered off-road focused alternative to the Power Wagon (only offered with the HEMI motor). The standard 1500 variant is Ram’s best-selling full-size truck, so the Rebel was welcomed by customers who desired a more capable truck for adventure. Consequently, it’s often the vehicle of choice for overland rigs with inspiring builds from Roaming Lost and Edward Shin. Furthermore, thanks to its 1,530-pound payload, it’s an excellent platform for a rolling home and can be outfitted with a well-equipped camper, as demonstrated by Left Coast Overland. If you’d like to see how the Rebel handles technical terrain, watch the 4×4 Off-Road Channel field test. Today’s 2019 offering has covered just 65,000 miles, features the powerful HEMI motor premium modifications, and is priced at $42,000.

From the Seller:

I love this truck because it’s a jack of all trades. It handles itself well on moderate trails, and rarely gets stuck with the use of the rear locker. It tows a travel trailer with ease which I’ve done many times up and over the Rockies. Inside is extra roomy and has served well as an overland rig for a family of 5. Easily fits 3 car seats in the back with room to spare! With the decked drawers and rooftop tent capable topper it makes having the truck ready for camping and overland at a moments notice that much easier.”
