Introducing New Mexico Backroads' [new] full-sized adventure rig, the NMBR Prospector - The American Expedition Vehicles built 2016 RAM Power Wagon Tradesman is equipped with 3" AEV DualSport SC Suspension, AEV Front/Rear Differential Covers, AEV Splash Guards, AEV Front Bumper, AEV Raised Air Intake w/ Pre-Filter Assembly, AEV Heat Reduction Hood, 17x8.5" AEV Salta HD Wheels, BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires, and AEV Leather Seating.
The NMBR Prospector's first backroads outing involved 350-miles of fieldwork through southern New Mexico's roughest and most remote territory. Initial impressions: The ride quality is incredibly smooth and stable at low to high speeds. Over washboard and rough road sections, minimal vibrations and noise are evident. Ground clearance, approach/departure angles are suitable for most terrain and road conditions encountered through NMBR's overland guiding and remote fieldwork. The RAM 2500 platform is considerably more nimble than expected with excellent steering response and control manners. The 6.4-liter HEMI power-plant, paired with 4:10 differential gearing, are well suited to handle 37-inch tires. Immediate conclusion: The NMBR Rubicon is going to have some serious sibling rivalry issues.
