the ram 1500 rebel otg (for "off the grid") concept may see the light of day if a patent filed by stellantis (previously fiat chrysler automobiles) with the united states patent and trademark office (uspto) is anything to go by. images attached to the document show what looks like a ram 1500 rebel wearing many of the mopar-sourced accessories the brand affixed to the rebel otg it built for the 2019 sema show.
while the vehicle in the patent images seems to forgo the likes of the otg's yakima bed rack, rooftop tent, collapsible awning, and bed-mounted slide-out kitchen, it does appear to sport the concept truck's snorkel intake, rear bumper with integrated led lights, and bespoke grille and steel front bumper, replete with provisions for a winch and driving lights.
whether this patent signals a new addition to the ram 1500 model line, a special mopar trim, or nothing at all is a bit of a mystery. we reached out to ram to learn more about this patent, but a company spokesperson would not comment on the matter.
that said, if we were the gambling type, we'd wager ram plans to use the otg concept as the template for its next limited-run mopar model, a special variant of the vehicle the brand is prone to occasionally building and selling.
as its name implies, the mopar special edition truck includes a number of mopar-brand accessory items. these special ram models are more than just trucks with the gamut of items in the accessory catalog attached to them, as mopar curates the pickups to create vehicles that stand out from their stablemates.
if this patent previews an otg-inspired ram 1500 rebel mopar model, then expect the concept truck's 10,000-pound warn winch (pulled from the ram 2500 power wagon), led driving lights, 2.0-inch lift, beadlock-capable wheels, and 35-inch goodyear off-road tires to accompany the aforementioned updates to the truck's front and rear bumpers, grille, and snorkel. then again, it's possible we're getting ahead of ourselves and the ram 1500 rebel otg concept remains the closest thing to a real-life version of the truck pictured in this patent.
