Ram Trucks know how to get the job done, especially the biggest jobs, like hauling and delivering heavy loads. That’s where the 5500 Chassis Cab with Dump Body comes in. The 2012 Ram Chassis Cab features a proven, easy-to-upfit frame and is ready to modify for your business. Here are some of the reasons to dump your old work truck and ride with Guts and Glory:
Workhorse Power: Proven Cummins® power is durable, efficient, quiet, and clean on the worksite, and it’s the only diesel that meets stringent Air Resource Board (ARB) state emission standards, thanks to the diesel exhaust fluid system. This means Chassis Cabs can idle indefinitely at a jobsite so you can use their HVAC and electrical features.
Heavyweight Hauling Champion: Ram 5500 Chassis Cabs are built with an industry-standard seven-pin wiring harness and feature Best-in-Class front-end tow hooks.
Long-lasting, Best-in-Class Brakes: Ram 5500 Chassis Cabs feature the largest front brake rotors (390 mm) and calipers (66 mm) in their class, providing greater stopping power and reduced wear on your brake pads. Chassis Cab also boasts a standard integrated exhaust brake, which reduces brake fade and helps to prolong brake life even further and standard four-wheel disc antilock brakes.
Tandem Power Takeoff Pump Capability: Available Power Takeoff (PTO) capability can run tandem pumps. This, along with the locking torque converter in PTO mode, allows the Ram Chassis Cab to have even more flexibility in powering upfits.
Go Farther with More Fuel Capacity: Ram Chassis Cabs come standard with 52-gallon fuel tanks, giving them Best-in-Class standard single fuel tank capacity. An auxiliary fuel port provides easy connections for auxiliary fuel-driven power sources. The available 22-gallon mid-ship auxiliary tank better accommodates rollback carrier upfits, and a B20 biodiesel package is also available for fleet customers.
Exterior styling: Ram Chassis Cabs have big-rig styling like chrome mirrors and door handles on Laramie® models, available polished aluminum wheels, and a louvered hood with a tall bulge to accommodate the legendary Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine.
