Delta Junction, Alaska, United States

Truck is in nice shape overall, see above for the probelems that I have listed,definatly needs some work. I am the second owner, was bought new by a guy that was a logger in Oragon in the winter and lived in Tok Alaska in the summer so it drove up and down Alcan a lot . He drove it all his life and I bought it from His son. It  should be 172000 miles or so the actual miles will change as I am driving it some times I listed the miles as unkown as it has the 100000 mile odometer and I have no way to verify that its on its second turn. These are some things that I have done, Last year new ball joints, and one tie rod end,new front shocks and coil springs with lift blocks, new front wheel bearings,calipers,and break pads and front break hoses. Truck was repainted last year ,not perfect but looks pretty good for a truck that's over 40 years old. Fuel injectors were rebuilt last year as well as the mechanical lift pump and primer that's attached to the injection pump the original fuel filter bowl cracked so  I have replased it with a Fram HPG-1 canister type fuel filter .  Has a propane injection unit on it with the tank in the pick-up bed also has an fs-2500 bypass oil filter.  As listed above the engine is worn out and burns a lot of oil athough it starts, runs and drives ok.  I would not recommend that the buyer drive this truck along ways as is .  The glow plugs are wired up with a push botton on the dash and it  it has a mechanical fuel shut of on the dash like a big truck. Glow plugs were replaesd in 2012 . Truck has a straight pipe exhaust. Tires are not that good and the transmission seams a bit soft,drivers door boes not always open correctly from the inside, door seals are shot and thare is a rip in the seat.  Bed mounted fuel tank and fire department licence plate do not go with the truck and will be removed when sold.  For more information you can call me  at 907-378-9697 please keep in mind that I am in interior Alaska and that we are 4 and 5 hours behind the east coast time so please do not call me in the midel of the night . Do not text me!!.   Buyer is resonsebel for shipping and this thing  needs to be gone by September as cold weather will complicate things.  $500  non refundebel deposite due in 24 hours by pay pal. Balance due in 48 hours no warrenty or returns.  Non paying buyers will get negative feedback.  Truck is for sale locally so I will end auction if it sells hear .  Thanks  for looking..l

Jeep Grand Cherokee, Dodge Durango to lose color options temporarily

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 09:29:00 EST

In the market for a Jeep Grand Cherokee or Dodge Durango? Well, if you fancy a more expressive color for your new SUV, you'd better get your order in, or plan on waiting until well into 2015.
The SUVs will be limited to just four monochromatic shades - black, white, silver and gray - until at least February, thanks to an upgrade to the paint shop at the two vehicles' Jefferson North factory. For the Grand Cherokee, that means it's losing more than half its color palette while the Durango is dropping two-thirds of its color catalog.
The loss of colors is inconvenient, but the upgrade will have a slightly bigger effect on the overall supply of SUVs, as Chrysler will need to end its relentless build pace at the factory for a three-week shutdown starting on December 22. The good news for fans of the SUVs is that once the work is completed, we should see a gradual expansion of the color palettes for both the Durango and Grand Cherokee, beyond even what's offered now.

Has Dodge stepped in it again with Scat Pack lawsuit?

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 09:28:00 EST

Lawsuits are an unfortunate part of doing business in just about any industry, so the latest complaint filed by a California-based aftermarket firm against Chrysler would seem to be nothing more than business as usual. But this isn't the first time the two companies have sparred over this particular issue.
According to a report from Automotive News, the dispute revolves around the Scat Pack name that Chrysler first offered on the Charger, Coronet, Dart and Super Bee starting in 1968. Scat Enterprises, a manufacturer of crankshafts and other components for Dodges and other vehicles, sued Chrysler for using its name. A few years later the Scat Pack disappeared from the Dodge catalog.
Fast forward to August 2013 when Chrysler applied to register the Scat Pack name anew. The US Patent and Trademark Office turned down Chrysler's application, but the automaker proceeded anyway, unveiling new Scat Packs for the Challenger, Charger and Dart at last year's SEMA show.

Indications of 825 hp and emissions issues for Hellcat called 'speculation' by Chrysler

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 11:00:00 EST

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is probably one of the hottest cars of the moment mostly because of its insane, 707-horsepower supercharged V8. However, there are conflicting reports coming out that the powerplant might be having problems with its emissions compliance and may be capable of even more power.
Jalopnik says that an unnamed source within Fiat Chrysler Automobiles told it that the Hellcat was having problems meeting emissions standards at its 707-horsepower tune. The person claimed that the automaker has been testing the V8 with different types of sensors, possibly to make it a bit cleaner in the future. Autoblog spoke to SRT spokesperson Dan Reid, and he said about the claimed poor emissions, "It's totally speculation."
The source also claimed that the Hellcat had been dynoed at a monumental 825 horsepower, internally. Based on the other rumor, though, it's hard to imagine the engine being emissions compliant like that. Autoblog also asked Reid about this speculation about more power and was told, "They are totally speculating about that."
