My job during the SEMA show is to find the coolest diesel truck builds and broadcast them to you guys here. Although the show was virtual via SEMA 360 this year, that didn’t stop people from building up their trucks and showcases them online. It definitely didn’t stop Logan Davis as he spruced up his 2011 RAM with all kinds of goodies.
This two-tone 2500 Ram is fitted with the 6.7-Liter Cummins engine. Davis got it two years ago when he purchased it from a private seller. “I was in the process of becoming a rig welder and I needed a full-size truck that could haul my welder and possibly a camper,” he said. “While online one night, I stumbled onto this truck that had just been painted like this by the owner.”
Davis, an Omaha, Nebraska native, knew the work was out there and needed a truck he could rely on. One of the features the truck had to have was a manual transmission. Davis stressed that shifting gears with a manual transmission is unlike any other. It’s just what he wanted. “I’ve always driven manual trucks and this one checked all of the boxes,” Davis said.
This paint scheme may look familiar. It was done up to resemble Laramie Longhorn Edition trucks, but this one had its own twist. “The paint they used is a very high-quality brown flake that will grab your attention when light hits it. The metallic copper two-tone finish is like no other and there were no corners cut in this process,” said Davis.
