What you see here is a 2005 Dodge Ram 3500 that's quite a bit more special than a normal, everyday Dodge Ram. It's a heavy-duty Dodge Ram Laramie that's been converted to have three total axles and ten total wheels: eight in back and two up front. Then it was draped in a patriotic motif.

We'll start from the start. The description for this Ram starts by calling it "the only real cowboy limo you'll ever see," and then notes it's a 6-wheel drive truck, with the first two axles accounting for the propulsion; the third axle isn't powered. In order to add the extra wheels, the owner had to stretch the bed and rear fenders, but the ad says this was done flawlessly, with a factory look -- and the photos seem to support it. The ad also notes the truck won't do more than 70 mph due to its gearing and large tires, so let's hope you don't plan to take this on any long highway trips.

According to the Carfax report, the truck was sold new in Arizona, and likely driven by someone unsuspecting of how it would end up. The current owners bought it in 2016 and probably modified it then, adding the extra wheels, the longer bed, and the American flag theme on the side. The current owners also likely added the smokestacks in the bed, which are described as functional.

If you're interested in the ultimate heavy-duty Dodge Ram, this one is offered by a private seller in the Phoenix area for $125,000 -- big money, but then again, this isn't your regular, everyday Ram 3500.
