Well the word is out. Mopar unveiled their off road racing program today at SEMA. KORE's Hemi stock full truck, and Collins Trophy truck will represent Mopars return to desert racing.

Here are a few pics if you follow the link.

Dang, I wish I could be down south to see those trucks in action at the Baja. Unfortunately, I won't have my passport in time.
Good Luck down there!

Kersten,

I am pretty sure you don't need your passport unless you are flying in and out of Mexico. That will change in 08. So come on down and watch several Dodges tear it up...

I think it's a little tougher for us Canadiens to get in and out of Mexico.
When does the race start?

We are excited about the whole thing. It's going to be great to have any help we can get to promote these awesome Dodge trucks, and show what they are capable of. I guess the unveiling they had yesterday was quite the spectacle, pretty cool. Mopar is excited about racing in the dirt again. Stock full doesn't get quite the attention that the trophy truck guys get, but it has tremendous value for representing the manufacturers. It's great to see our truck right up next to the Collins trophy truck.

I will post some more pics when I get them.

Excellent. Stock Full needs some more competition.

Do you have any tech data on what they're running in 867? Looks like 4 shocks in the rear. What do they have up front?

Is it a Hemi or a Cummins?

Is the radiator in the front removed?

I'd imagine it is tough to see out the back due to the radiator and bed cage. All you see out the back is probably a cloud of death.

I'm guessing that the suspension on this truck is just a pinch more expensive than the Recon I have on my truck :)

KORE Hemi front shocks

Here's the shock setup for the Hemi.

The front sports a 4.4 5 tube bypass, and a 3.0 4 tube bypass on each side. Things have changed a little since Kersten took those pics. The rear has 3.5 5 tube bypasses on the outside, and 3.0 3 tubes on the insides. A lot more than a Recon system here, ha ha.

Radiator is still in front. Those are two tranny coolers, and one engine oil cooler you see behind the cab.

Anyone ready to upgrade????
I will be upgrading my Recon in March, but I don't think it's going to be that extreme! Those trucks are impressive!!!
