cover to protect everything from the weather and stuff like that. The Ram is much easier when it comes to preparing it for shows.”
The literal boatload of audio gear the Ram has to haul around is just the precursor to the party. On top of the massive box in the bed is a 60-inch Vizio LED TV, which can lower and raise in and out of the box. Orion's team usually plays music videos to complement the beats the truck is pumping out, but they've often tossed on the game and had a killer tailgate. Also, in the rear door on the driver's side is a Pioneer DJ console. The console can be used to just plug in a playlist, or have an actual DJ setup and mix on the spot.
When both the console and TV are used together, however, that's when the party really kicks it into high-gear. That's right: karaoke! Those who are drunk enough to think they can sing are able to hook up some microphones and go to town, while following along with the lyrics on the 60-inch screen. We weren't lying when we said this Ram is a mobile party.
For Cedeno, what really matters is how people have enjoyed themselves when they're around the truck. He loves hearing people's reactions to the thumping fun factory.
“The feedback from people is that it sounds like a really good concert,” Cedeno says. “Once you play it loud, the reaction from people is unbelievable. No one has come up with a concept like this before.”
It definitely is a one-of-a-kind concept. Have you ever heard of a Dodge Ram that carries a 4,000plus pound party on its back that puts out 33,000 watts of clean, loud power? Well, once you have heard it, it's not something you're going to forget – no matter how much you've had to drink.
