HEMI Swap with Jasper Engines Replacement 5.7 in a Dodge Ram 1500 on 37" Tires

Added by AutomotiveUploads
This is the official start of the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 HEMI truck project in the AutoEdits Garage! This vehicle was originally built by Fred Williams and Frank Allioto for Petersen 4 wheel and off road magazine for the SEMA custom auto show in Las Vegas several years ago. It has custom suspension by Edelbrock that just about fit the 37" Mickey Thompson tires at stock ride height.
There's a Randy Ellis Designs front bumper and Light Force lights. Custom interior by Katzkins and a very unique paint job... yes that is all hand painted details on this Ram.
The truck has been wheeled hard by many magazine editors and then given to the production crews at TEN or The Enthusiast Network to help support the shows on the Motor Trend You Tube channel like Roadkill, Dirt Every Day, Ignition, Roadkill Garage and Head to Head.
Once the engine failed, I was able to buy the truck from the company and had stored it in my driveway for several months until getting the Jasper Engines and Transmissions re-manufactured 5.7 HEMI to swap into this thing.
In this video, I attempt an engine swap on my side yard in the middle of a record Southern California heat wave that saw temperatures at 110 degrees for the entire week!
I picked the Jasper Engines 5.7 because they offer one of the best warranties in the business and have over 75 years of experience. Plus, the more I learned about the company, the more I wanted to support them. Jasper is an employee owned company and offers training programs for young mechanics and employs a many of our military veterans... I dig that so much!
So come along on this journey of breathing new life into this great Dodge truck and start it on it's new adventure.
