The Ultimate 2003 to 2007 Dodge Sleeper Recipe

The 700hp Element Of Surprise

Text By , Photography by

If you’re like us, you prefer a subtle, even humble-appearing truck to one loaded down with chrome, wild paint, and other exterior accessories. You’d rather drive an average-looking truck with a 700hp surprise under the hood than own a show queen. If this state of mind suits you, you’re a sleeper fan. Because so many diesel owners prefer to have the element of surprise on their side, we decided to profile one of the best cases of truck deception we’ve come across.

Smoke-free Sleeper
Today, the mindset of your average diesel enthusiast is vastly different from what it used to be. The days of rolling coal through town whenever you feel like it are over. So even though the owner of this ’07 Dodge Ram 2500 wanted to make considerable horsepower, the driving force behind the build was to keep the truck as smoke-free as possible. The end result is not only a clean-running truck, but also one that spools instantly and makes more than 680 rwhp. If any vehicle represents an all-in-one package, this is it. It’s daily driven, sees 21 mpg on the highway, and tows regularly—yet would be game for hunting down a Viper or two if the opportunity presented itself.
