Cabelas Ramcharger back and on ebay
« on: August 31, 2020, 12:37:12 pm »
Years ago there was a lot of senseless banter about this vehicle.   It's not just stickers.   It has a lot of one off unusual accessores which amount to about as much as what you can buy that stuff for.   The important thing is, like a Cadillac being first registered to Elvis, this was a joint venture between DODGE and Cabelas to make a vehicle to DEMO the upfit-ability of a full size suv so Cabela's would sell more stuff.
With copies of the original Cabela's title and reg, makes it pretty cool.   And now that a shit ton of body paint and mechanicial has been done to it it is once again a loveable Ramcharger nicer than most on the road.

    Great exterior paint color scheme.

    Comparatively speaking though, not impressed with the interior. Appears all original stock. The engine compartment - for being a 'concept vehicle' - is filthy & straight stock. And, the wheels are original. Who ever uses stock wheels for a concept vehicle?

    And all the stickers everywhere? Really?

    Nothing really wrong with any of it. However, for the two large corporations being involved (???), I'm not at all impressed or overwhelmed.

    I'll be shocked if they get anywhere near their $21K asking price.

    It's not really a "concept vehicle", it's just one of a couple accessorized trucks used by a store to promote their brand.  There really isn't anything special about it and the only value added to it would be to someone who really likes Cabela's.  If I had it, it would get D60s under it, and a paint job and no one would ever know it had anything to do with Cabela's.

    So in order to do what you're saying, how much do you pay for an 'asking $21K' RC?

    Other than rust repair, (done right) painting has got to be one of the most expensive things you can do to a vehicle. Unless, some how, some way, you're into crazy customizing. It's certainly more expensive than a new motor!
