GeigerCars is a leading German tuner and importer of American performance cars. This time around, they got their hands on a new Dodge Ram 1500 Rebel with a 5.7 liter HEMI V8 putting out 401 hp.
The sporty truck is given a 20" alloy wheels with large off-road 35x12.5 tires. Spacers are added to increase track width by 36 mm for better balance and stability. GeigerCars adds their offroad suspension kits which give a full 10 centimeter (about 4 inch) clearance between the wheel and the flared wheel arches. The kit does not affect the height adjustment feature of the factory air suspension.
A strong rollover bar at the front of the cargo bed gives additional protection, and a slim LED auxiliary light bar on the roof gives additional lighting when far from civilization.
GeigerCars also has an LPG (liquified petroleum gas) Autogas system for those interested in running this fuel alternative

The new Dodge Ram 1500 Rebel lives up to its name as an antidote to the run-of-the-mill SUV establishment. Now available from US car specialists GeigerCars.de, the 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 Rebel announces its XXL presence in Europe.
• Raised ride height and off-road tyres on 20-inch wheels for maximum off-road performance.
• Roof mounted LED light bar and load platform mounted rollover bar.
• 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with 401hp - also available with LPG Autogas system.
The rugged appearance of the Rebel leaves you in no doubt that this 5.82 metre long crew cab pickup was born for hard use. This impression is reinforced after GeigerCars.de take the luxuriously appointed US heavyweight to the next level of tough with some choice in-house components.
First off, US car legend Karl Geiger and his team equip the Rebel with a set of aggressively treaded 35x12.5R20 off-road tyres mounted on 9.0x20-inch alloy wheels. Spacers increase the overall track width by 36 mm for enhanced stability, and an even more purposeful stance.
Next, GeigerCars.de reinforce the mud-plugging theme with their off-road suspension kit, which increases clearance between the wheel/tyre combinations and the bolted wide wheel arch flares by 100 mm, enabling the Rebel to tackle steep ascents, deep water and mud. Importantly, the height adjustment feature of the factory SER air suspension is unaffected by this conversion.
Rounding off the Geiger Rebel’s outlaw appearance is an LED auxiliary light bar on the roof, and a rollover bar mounted on the cargo bed aft of the passenger cab.
Powered by a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine with 401 hp, 548 Nm of torque and an 8-speed automatic transmission, the Dodge Ram 1500 Rebel is available from GeigerCars.de starting at 56,900 euros.
In addition to engine tuning conversions for the enthusiast, GeigerCars.de also offer an LPG Autogas system that helps to take the sting out of long-term running costs.
