Project Trucks: Hammerhead Armor RAM
Hammerhead Armor has been in the business for a number of years, manufacturing quality bumpers and offroad armor for everything from full-size trucks to Jeep applications. Based out of Bay Springs, MS these southern boys build their products right here in USA. In an industry where most manufacturers tout their latest products on decked out company rigs, Hammerhead was in need of a new truck to use for dealer stops and display at events. After getting the green light they picked up a brand spankin’ new 2015 RAM 2500 Cummins and worked on plans to turn it into a bad ass show piece, something capable of performing up to the high standards their bumpers are built to. Initial plans called for a lift kit, larger wheels and tires, body armor, and performance mods and with that Project Armament was born.
The first step to this truck’s transformation was the body armor. A Hammerhead pre-runner front bumper was fitted along with a Warn M15000 winch and Rigid LED lighting. Out back a matching rear bumper was installed along with recessed lighting. Along with that a set of Hammerhead running boards were installed for rocker protection and easier access into the cab. With this truck spending so much time traveling around the country the guys needed a smooth ride and predictable handling so anyone could drive it with ease. To accomplish this the guys went with a BDS 6” 4-Link Conversion System with Fox shocks and dual steering stabilizer which opened up plenty of room for 37×12.50×20 Toyo R/Ts mounted up on 20×10 BMF Novakanes. Bushwacker extend-a-flares were fitted to help keep the body clean and the bed received the full line-X treatment. Up top a roof mounted 50” Rigid light bar was installed for extra trail visibility and a Trex x-metal mesh grille was fitted for a custom look. The axles were regeared to a 4.56 ratio from Nitro Grear & Axle and a new high capacity rear diff cover was installed. The stock 6.7L Cummins received attention in the form of an Edge Products juice w/ attitude cts programmer, AFe cold air intake, AFe intercooler tubes and a MBRP exhaust system boosting the output to around 500hp and 900lb/ft of torque.
With the vinyl wrap installed this 2015 RAM 2500 is a head turner out on the street and a bad ass calling card for Hammerhead Armor. We’re looking forward to seeing it our over the next several years at shows and events touring the country. For more on this rig head to BDS’s Facebook Page or check out Hammerhead Armor.
