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

2014 Dodge Journey Crossroad soldiers on in the Chi

Thu, 06 Feb 2014 16:20:00 EST

Introduced to the market in 2008 and updated in 2011, the Dodge Journey crossover has had all the freshness of a retirement village in recent years. Filling a potentially important niche for Dodge as an affordable, family-sized vehicle, the Journey has gotten one last mild refresh here in Chicago. Feast your mild-appearance-package-loving eyes on the 2014 Dodge Journey Crossroad.
We can't be sure if the inspiration for the Crossroad appellation was the 2002 blockbuster film, Crossroads, starring Britney Spears, or the 1986 cult-classic, Crossroads, starring Ralph Macchio, but based on the CUV's newfound boyish charm, we're betting on the Karate Kid.
Dark finish 19-inch wheels, platinum chrome accents and a manly new front fascia tell the world that this isn't the Dodge Journey that they've long since forgotten about. In fairness, the Crossroad is easily the best-looking iteration of the Journey to date, and should be better to live with, too, considering its revised cabin, leather seats and standard Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system.

Old vs. New: 2014 SRT Viper takes on upgraded 16-year-old Dodge Viper

Fri, 08 Feb 2013 16:58:00 EST

It's easy to play the "Would you rather have a New X or an Old Y with a bunch of upgrades?" game more often than we care to admit, but the crew at Car and Driver have taken bench racing to the next level with their latest video. In it, the magazine pits a brand-new 2014 SRT Viper against a highly modified 1997 Dodge Viper GTS. There are 16 years between the time this particular GTS rolled off the production line and when the new car bowed, but that doesn't mean the old snake's owners have been sitting on their hands.
Thanks to a spate of modifications, the GTS offers up a better power to weight ratio than the new machine, but is that enough to overcome the technological leap forward represented by the 2014 Viper? We won't spoil it for you. You'll just have to check out the full clip below for yourself.

Total auto recalls already on record pace in 2014

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 18:30:00 EST

If you've noticed that there have been more recalls than usual this year, you may be on to something. According to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the US market is on pace to break a record for recalls. In 2013, 22 million cars were recalled. We're only a third of the way through 2014, though, and we've already halved that figure, with 11 million units recalled. That's wild.
Considering the past few months, it shouldn't be a surprise that General Motors is leading the charge, with six million of the 11 million units recalled coming from one of the General's four brands. Between truck recalls, CUV recalls and the ignition switch recall, 2014 hasn't been a great year for GM.
Other recall leaders include Nissan (one million Sentra and Altima sedans), Honda (900,000 Odyssey minivans), Toyota (over one million units in a few recalls), Volkswagen (150,000 Passat sedans), Chrysler (644,000 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs) and most recently, Ford (434,000 units, the bulk of which were early Ford Escape CUVs). So while it's been a bad year for GM so far, its competitors aren't doing too well, either.
