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

Chrysler recalling 49K Chargers for headlight components

Fri, 14 Mar 2014 10:14:00 EST

Chrysler has issued a recall for about 49,375 2011 and 2012 Dodge Chargers with halogen headlamps due to a problem with the lights. The automaker says that there could be an issue with the jumper harness and other related components.
The automaker says that 43,450 cars are affected in the US, 2,850 in Canada, 375 in Mexico and 2,700 outside of North America. The vehicles will have their headlight assemblies, including the jumper harnesses and bulbs, inspected and potentially replaced. Dodge says that its engineers investigated reports of that were similar to what was found when it recalled about 10,000 police Chargers in 2012 for overheating light components. There have been no injuries or accidents related to fault, according to Chrysler.
The automaker will be in contact with affected owners, and schedule the service. Naturally, any repairs will be free of charge. Scroll down for the company's full announcement.

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.

2013 Dodge Challenger R/T Redline revs into Chicago

Fri, 01 Feb 2013 00:01:00 EST

When Dodge released the Challenger Rallye Redline last year, it brought a new dimension of styling to the car's classic muscle car lines, but it was only available in V6 form lacking the oomph to back up its sinister appearance. To remedy that situation, Dodge is unveiling the Challenger R/T Redline, powered by a Hemi V8 engine, at the Chicago Auto Show.
Other than the extra cylinders, most of the R/T's Redline package carries over from the Rallye model including the custom-look 20-inch black chrome wheels with red paint accents, but the R/T version of the package gets more of a retro look to the side stripes with graphite graphics featuring Redline lettering. Cars equipped with the six-speed manual transmission will get a performance-tuned, low-restriction exhaust allowing the engine to produce 375 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque; cars with the five-speed auto are rated at 372 hp and 400 lb-ft, but they do offer a bright chrome Mopar t-handle shifter and steering wheel paddle shifters.
The R/T Redline Group is offered only on cars painted in Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Bright White and Pitch Black, and it adds just $1,995 to the MSRP of the Challenger R/T (starting at $31,990) and the Challenger R/T Plus (starting at $33,990), which adds features like Nappa leather and Boston Acoustics speakers.
