We've built some pretty cool Site Commanders over the eight-year history of this program, but this year tops them all by far. That's because at every stage in the project, everything just clicked together: the ambitious mission, creative ideas, coordinated process, and seamless teamwork. And as you probably know from your own projects, when that happens, you've set yourself up for success.

As you check out the customized work truck concepts we've included throughout these Dodge Ram 5500s, you'll see a theme that ties the Site Commander features, technologies, and new products together: innovation and leadership.

From LENOX's new T2 cutting technology, to the powerful computer and communications gear from Dell and Sprint, to the customized Reading Body, to the new all-terrain jobsite Segway, you will see the most innovative application of technology ever combined into a work truck by industry leaders. And along with breakthrough products from Werner Ladder, Georgia-Pacific, Therma-Tru Doors, and Carhartt work wear, the Site Commander offers time-saving jobsite solutions you can use tomorrow to add power to your own business management and growth, and increase productivity, quality, and safety on your projects. We're proud to bring you this year's Site Commander--the ultimate work truck.
