This is a brutal truck. It looks the part and drives like a maniac. Three tires versions to choose from. And you can add a snorkel, garage crate for garage points, roll bar or toolbox with repair points. The texturing on the truck looks really good, giving the truck a nice aggressive look. The baja tires are best on hard surface, all terrain tires are a good balance between mud a hard surface handling, tractor tires have the best grip in the mud but worse grip on hard surface.
SoD did a good job on this mod and you will not be disappointed when you download this.
If you download the zip open it and go to ST14 – SoD dodge ram 1500\Media\textures\trucks\SiD dodge ram paint jobs\ to see three paintjobs by SiD. Availiable are Rusty, Digital Camo and Two Tone Black. Copy the files to SteamApps\common\Spintires\Media\textures\trucks\SoD-1999-dodge-ram-1500 and clear cache to make the new skin active.
Package updated with a xml that included the Kamaz, Zil and Ural tires sets.

mickey martinNov 15, 2014 11:15 am
nevermind it seems it spintires itself sorry about that
KuszlykNov 18, 2014 7:22 am
Would it be possible to make a white paint job for this truck? But a very good mod!
Spintires.nlNov 18, 2014 8:28 am
You could do it yourself with a bit work. Why not try it?
SKULL0FD3ATHNov 19, 2014 11:47 am
maybe next update (far from now though) there are some texture templates in the trucks texture folder, you’re more then welcome to use the black and red skin as a starting point if you like.
mitchellJan 02, 2015 11:52 pm
since installing this truck my game will randomly freeze up an i gotta close out an reopen it
Spintires.nlJan 06, 2015 1:29 pm
And now (after the recent updates to ST)?
SKULL0FD3ATHJan 07, 2015 12:40 am
im updated the truck to work with the recent stable version hoping to have that done tonight.
CJJan 10, 2015 4:08 pm
is anyone else having problems with the mods having a solid black “box” around the ground on the truck, and no its not the shadow.
Spintires.nlJan 11, 2015 1:46 am
You probably need to upgrade that mod. Relatively easy.
HEADBUSTERJan 21, 2015 1:04 am
i seem to be having a problem where the windows are a solid opaque black and there is a black rectangle under the truck even after ive upgraded the mod. Any help ?
Spintires.nlJan 21, 2015 8:13 am
When you are done drop me a dropbox link or something like that 🙂
Rav3nJan 22, 2015 4:56 pm
Has anyone updated this mod yet? The ’99- body style is my fav of all the Rams.. and it’s OPness is perfect for my impatient nature. 🙂 I would do it myself, but I don’t have the time right now. Maybe tonight if nobody else does…
Rav3nJan 22, 2015 10:33 pm
I have edited this mod to (hopefully) work properly. I am away from my gaming PC right now, so I cannot test it. If there are any issues let me know and I will look through and attempt to fix them. 🙂
Rav3nJan 22, 2015 10:47 pm
Bloody hell… I forgot to link the dropbox… feel free to moderate the crap out of this triple post…
Spintires.nlJan 23, 2015 7:12 am
Thanks for doing this. I’ll check it out asap!
Rav3nJan 23, 2015 7:27 am
I can confirm, it works awesomely. A couple things to note about this truck: It’s very powerful. In 1+ gear it tries to wheelie. It is also extremely light, which causes it to bounce a bit. Finally, the snorkel does basically nothing lol. With a bit of tweaking it is my favorite modded truck so far. 🙂 Even beats out SID’s ’68 Blazer. If I can get permission, I would try to tweak it a bit and upload a more ‘balanced’ version of it for the challenge-seekers. 🙂
Spintires.nlJan 23, 2015 8:11 am
I uploaded the repack file now. Only thing that i needed to do was the windows. They are now transparent again. Thanks again. And if you go on the Oovee you can send SID a pm.
skullFeb 09, 2015 12:51 am
you can if you wish to, i don’t mind
tylerJan 22, 2015 11:49 pm
the dodge ROCKS
AustinFeb 20, 2015 12:22 pm
Da it’s a DODGE
Rav3nJan 24, 2015 12:09 am
Alright. I thought the black painted version of the truck was supposed to have limo tinted windows. Also, I spaced fixing the other skin/textures so if you want I will attempt to fix them aswell tonight or tomorrow.
AARON DAVIDSONJan 24, 2015 10:12 pm
okay, so i might just be stupid, but how exactly do I get this truck in game? and which vehicle does it replace?
AARON DAVIDSONJan 24, 2015 11:02 pm
Yeah no matter what i do i cant get this truck in game, if someone could help me… that would be great 🙂
StevenFeb 06, 2015 6:28 am
I do apologize for bothering , if I am , and please direct me to another thread if there is one. My son loves and plays the game adn recently watched a youtube video about this truck. I’ve downloaded the files from the URL on the youtube video, but I can’t seem to locate them. Elite Unzip doesn’t show files when I open it … anything I’m doing wrong aside from being inept and rutarded?
I would appreciate any help. thank you ! 🙂
StevenFeb 06, 2015 6:34 am
I’m attempting to download and install this truck, but it’s not going well. I’m looking for a little assistance. I have downloaded the truck mod from the URL, but the Elite Unzip doesn’t show any files. I’ve never worked with Elite Unzip before, so maybe I’m just naive.
However, do I need to download or install anything else before hand? My son plays the game and watched a youtube video with the truck and would like to play with it. Any help is much appreciated ! 🙂 Thank you.
Spintires.nlFeb 06, 2015 7:26 am
You 7zip to unpack the zip, i downloaded and checked to make sure and the file are in the zip. Drive safe!
Rav3nFeb 11, 2015 11:33 pm
Skull, sorry for the trouble, but could you send me a quick confirmatory PM on the Oovee forums.. just to be 100% sure it is you. I’m Arya Suun on there. 🙂
Spintires.nlFeb 12, 2015 5:31 am
Why not send skull a pm yourself? And what for?
AustinFeb 20, 2015 12:18 pm
Hey man can you tell me how to delete the cache on windows 8.1 so I can get the digital camo for the dodge
Spintires.nlFeb 20, 2015 12:21 pm
That should help you with what your question.
ConradFeb 25, 2015 9:38 pm
What vehicle does this mod replace, if it does?
Spintires.nlFeb 27, 2015 4:30 pm
Classes/trucks. Replaces whichever default truck you name the xml. Zil.xml for example.
xcaliber360Mar 08, 2015 4:05 am
why do the shocks seem so jumpy in the mud.
karetakerMar 10, 2015 1:36 am
so how hard is it to have a mod work for multi and working achievements? just asking there alot of nice vehicles on here that i would love to mess around with but for single player i hate. always like to mess around with a friend. thanks KT.
KakuMar 11, 2015 12:38 pm
Have the latest xml and filename standard.
trentApr 19, 2015 7:31 pm
i moved the media files over into the steam media files and went into the game and couldn’t find the truck is there something im not doing right?
trentApr 20, 2015 10:40 pm
i keep downloading mods trying to get them to work. i download the mod i want ten move it from my zip file to the media file in spintires go into the game and cant fined any of them any tips on where they might be or anything i need to do different
25_Cans_Of_BaconNov 28, 2015 10:49 am
I like the look and feel of this truck, especially the sound, but the gear ratio on automatic relegates it useless. Even on the flattest of off-road surfaces with no mud or rocks that any 4 x 4 should easily fly over, it goes for about 5 feet, then tries to shift into 2nd, then stalls. Repeat. Unless I’m on a paved road. I have to be in 1st constantly, and then I’m crawling which takes hours to get anywhere.
I’ve noticed this on other mods as well. Many of these trucks are nowhere near accurate representations of their RL counterparts. They should have no trouble reaching respectable speed on flat and even moderately sloped terrain. This one goes, stalls, goes, stalls, goes, stalls. It’s pointless in anything other than 1st and manual unless you are on a paved road. Too bad, as I really want to use this.
Yes, I have the parking brake off.
@trent: have you tried using JSGME?
FamousTrickzFeb 14, 2016 3:08 am
How do I install trucks into multiplayer? Without using steam. If there is any way.
JaredApr 21, 2016 12:37 am
Does this mod still work and if it does can you tell me how to download it.
Spintires.nlApr 28, 2016 7:19 pm
