Fiat Chrysler Automobiles designers Ralph Gilles and Mark Trostle asked homebound enthusiasts to submit sketches of the "wickedest and most outrageous designs for a Ram truck."

The winners — their creators didn't really win anything, other than fleeting social media stardom — included a Ram-Challenger mashup (chosen by Trostle) and an electric rover with a see-through front end (chosen by Gilles).
