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

NHTSA investigating Chrysler for airbags, ignition switches

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 16:01:00 EST

Chrysler is being targeted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in a pair of actions that focus on over 1.2 million Jeeps, minivans and crossovers.
The first is a "preliminary investigation" that focuses on an airbag issue afflicting the Jeep Commander built in model years 2006 and 2007 and Grand Cherokee from 2005 to 2006. In total, 700,000 vehicles could potentially be affected. It's not entirely clear what the airbag issue is, with The Detroit Free Press simply stating that the restraint systems in the affected Jeeps may be "faulty."
The other investigation is what's called a "recall query" and it covers a problem that General Motors should be familiar with. In this case, there could be a problem with the ignition switches of 525,000 vehicles, ranging from 2008 to 2010 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans, to the 2008 to 2010 Dodge Journey crossover. Again, it's not entirely clear what sort of behavior prompted the 32 complaints that NHTSA has received on these vehicles.

Dodge Journey gets more SUV-like look with new Crossroad model

Fri, 31 Jan 2014 14:29:00 EST

Looking to play up its aging three-row crossover, Dodge will introduce a new model for its Journey franchise at next week's Chicago Auto Show. The 2014 Dodge Journey Crossroad will be a new trim level positioned between the SXT and Limited, and it will be distinguished from other Journey models thanks to a handful of styling add-ons.
Plucking a page right out of the appearance playbook of the Ford Explorer Sport, the Journey Crossroad gets a meaner, more SUV-like demeanor. The Journey has often straddled the line between tall wagon and crossover, but this new trim goes a long way toward skewing its visuals toward the utility vehicle end of the spectrum. That's thanks largely to the Platinum chrome exterior trim on its roof rails and side sills, unique fascias, smoked headlights and taillights and, of course, those black 19-inch wheels. Inside, the Journey Crossroad will get a similar treatment, with darker, Liquid Graphite accents throughout the cabin, and the model will also come standard with leather seats (which Dodge says are a new design), and Chrysler's giant 8.4-inch Uconnect screen.
The 2014 Journey Crossroad goes on sale this spring with a starting price of $24,995 (*not including $995 for destination) for the four-cylinder, front-wheel-drive model, but Dodge says that the model will also be offered with more power and capability from the optional 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and all-wheel-drive. Scroll down for the full press release, and check back next week for our live coverage from Chicago.

Chrysler celebrates 30 years of minivans with special editions

Tue, 03 Sep 2013 13:00:00 EST

It's been known by many names: the Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Caravan, Plymouth Voyager, Chrysler Voyager, Lancia Voyager, Volkswagen Routan, Ram Cargo Van... but the bottom line is that Chrysler's minivans have defined the segment for 30 years now. In fact, Chrysler says it has sold 13 million of them since 1983, helped along by the Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan that accounted for nearly half of all minivans sold in the United States just last year. So to celebrate this three-decade milestone, the Auburn Hills auto has announced a pair of new special editions.
The 2014 Chrysler Town & Country 30th Anniversary Edition starts the Touring-L trim and includes such special touches as 17-inch wheels, unique badging, available Granite Crystal Pearl paint and an interior decked out in black Alcantara and Nappa leather, piano black trim and all the optional bells and whistles bundled in.
The 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan 30th Anniversary Edition, meanwhile, starts off with either the SE or SXT trims and also upgrades with 17-inch alloys as well as color-keyed mirrors and an interior with silver stitching, piano black trim, power everything, and of course, those special badges.
