DODGE RAM ROD SHOWS OFF SPECTRAFLAIR PAINT

The all new 2002 Dodge Ram showed up in a number of iterations during this year's SEMA show but one in particular caught our attention at the DaimlerChrysler display.

Stunning is about the only word that can be used to describe the SpectraFlair paint job on Performance West's Ram Rod show truck.

A new light diffractive pigment, created by Flex Products, creates a rainbow hue in the paint coating that is very distinctive and smooth without being harsh like other iridescent paint jobs. The rainbow is created with microscopic aluminum particles.

According to a Flex Products spokesperson near the Ram Rod, this paint job might be offered as an option on future Rams.

The Ram Rod also sports looks inspired by past Dodge concept trucks, the PowerWagon and PowerBox. Along with a similar color paint job to the Power twins, the front bumpers and lower fascia have been resculpted with an edge and integrated fog lamps. 23-inch wheels add to the concept feel.

A Kenne Bell supercharger kit adds power to the Ram Rod's looks.
