Alex Petersen's Farm Rams

Wheel Tire Motor vehicle Automotive tire Vehicle

For years, Alex Petersen of Redwood Falls, Minnesota, and farm employees have driven a 1988 Dodge Power Ram 250 to haul 150 gallons of diesel, seed, tools, liquid fertilizer, and hay bales (pictured are 33 bales weighing around 35 pounds each). Alex knew they needed something newer, and out a Ram HD onto the list, with a Hemi engine, long bed for a fuel tank and space, and regular cab with extra storage behind the seats.

Petersen bought his 2007 Ram 2500 HD in November 2012. For use on the farm, he appreciates the easy-to-clean rubber floors and stain-resistant seats. "The dash layout is uncomplicated and easy for any new employee to figure out," Petersen added. He has also had no hesitation driving the 5.7-liter V-8 truck in deep snow. "This truck is one snow machine! We've had it in 16 inches of snow and drove it through without hesitation."

Current upgrades include a two-inch lift, BF Goodrich tires, bushwacker fender flares, cold-air intake, grille guard, and a true dual exhaust system. A spray-in bed liner has also been added to protect the bed from the loading and unloading of heavy objects. Future upgrade plans include a full LINE-X rocker-panel spray to protect the body from gravel. "As a farm truck, this Ram should last the 24 years our old '88 did," Petersen said.
