An Optima Red Top battery is mounted in the corner of the bed using a Camburg battery tray
Speaking of tires, the truck rides on 37x13.50R17 Toyo, Open Country mud terrain tires that are wrapped around a set of heavy duty TrailReady, true beadlock wheels that are as strong as they are beautiful. Two additional spares are carried in the Atomic-built bed cage that also incorporates the upper shock mounts for the King bypass shocks.
Tucked into the corner of the bed is a Red Top Optima battery secured by a Camburg battery tray. The truck leads the way with an Atomic-built bumper and skidplate that protect the front end of the truck as well as the pair of Soltek, Baja Designs HID lights. The entire package works flawlessly, just as intended. The Glassworks fiberglass fenders and bedsides blend seamlessly into the body and along with the factory silver paint give the truck a subtle unassuming look. Just like the AMRAAM that the truck is named after, you might not see this truck coming until it's too late.
