YouTuber Does The Unthinkable But Right Thing To His New Ram TRX

What is done to this brand new 2021 Ram TRX is shocking and extremely entertaining at once


  • With less than 1,000 miles accumulated, the TRX jumps more than 40 yards and survives.

  • Pricing for the TRX starts at $70,00 in the US, $94,000 in Canada.

  • After the jump, Bilstein reached out to get its used shocks in exchange for new ones.


YouTubers are a special breed, to put it nicely. Some do their “jobs” to inform, but most are out to entertain and outdo the others. One such specialist took delivery of a brand-new 2021 Ram TRX only to drive it home and quickly find out what it’s made of.

There’s no way we can recommend that anyone do what he did with his TRX but admittedly, we are hooked. Like most of you, we are completely under the supercharged 702-horsepower Ram TRX’s spell and love everything about it. We especially love the fact the Ram is not shy about the truck’s abilities thanks to its build and components, including the all-new Bilstein Black Hawk e2 shock system.

Although Ram tested the truck before its launch, we don’t think they ever imagined anyone ever launching their TRX as Mike from StreetSpeed 717 has. What’s more, it’s what he does with and to the TRX after the jump in subsequent videos.

Interestingly, Bilstein contacted the TRX’s owner after the launch to see if they could get their hands on the suspension components for evaluation in exchange for a new set. That pretty much confirms that even the TRX was not intended to be abused to this extent.

If you chose to watch the follow-up videos, be warned as what happens to the TRX is not for the weak at heart.
