Hello and thank you for looking at my monster! I had hoped to restore it completely but I can't take her with me when I leave and I can't leave her here, so...
I've done so much work to this truck...had the rear end, transmission and transfer case gone over and everything checked out really nicely. Mechanic said the rear-end looked brand new. It does have the floating axles, and the lockers on the front are made by Warn. It is 3/4 ton and will definitely pull and haul, the frame is in really good shape.

Painless Wiring Harness!
Trailer Brake System!
Complete Brake System, lines included.
We put the windshields in, repaired the floorboards and sealed them and then put in leather bucket seats (VERY comfortable). I also have the big mud tires for the buyer to enjoy. I have the door panels and some other odds and ends also that are not in the pictures. The body has a little to be desired but is decent and functional as it is. It has some issues in the normal places such as rockers, bed corners, etc, and has been painted before.
The engine runs great and the truck does everything it should. The problem it does have is that we have not cleaned and sealed the fuel tank, so the truck will eventually suck up junk and stall. This is the only mechanical problem that I know of, but because of this it will have to be trailered to its new home.
*I've got more than $5,000 in this truck and I know I'm going to take a loss on it, but in this economy that's just the way it is. But, if the bidding gets up to $4,000 I'll throw in the D100 'parts truck' for free!!! The parts truck has a great body and would run with a new carburetor and it only has 30,000 original miles. If the Power Wagon does not sell for $4,000 the winning buyer will have the option to purchase the parts truck for $700.*

Chrysler has announced that it will issue three separate recalls that will cover as many as 1.2 million Ram pickup trucks for "steering-system tie rods that may have been misaligned during assembly or steering-system service." The vast majority of these trucks were sold in the United States, though some trucks in Mexico, Canada or overseas will be called in, as well.

The largest of the three recalls covers an estimated 842,400 model-year 2003-2008 Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks. Two smaller campaigns will bring 294,000 model-year 2008-2012 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups, chassis cabs and 2008 Ram 1500 4x4 Mega Cabs; plus 43,500 model-year 2008-2012 Ram 4500 and 5500 4x4 chassis cabs into the dealer to be checked and repaired if necessary.
This is a very large recall, and Chrysler says it is "casting the net wider than necessary to identify those vehicles that require repair." The automaker estimates that "as many as 726,000 may not need repair."
This past June I spent an excellent day hanging out with Joey Ruiter, driving and discussing his Reboot Buggy project. Before heading home, I let him know that he was more than welcome to keep me abreast of whichever new automotive project he'd get into. You can never have too many car designers and one-off fabricators in your Rolodex, right?

Ruiter recently made good with the follow-up, emailing me with details on this Dodge Challenger A/T Untamed Concept that pushes a lot of hot buttons for the muscle car and off-roading enthusiasts.
This all-terrain Mopar is a lot more than a Challenger body dropped on a truck chassis, too. A materialized version of the A/T would included a completely new, long-travel suspension, skid plates, body armor and rock sliders, and obviously flared fenders to help accommodate a hellacious set of off-road-ready tires. The dramatically revised underpinnings would be topped with a slick graphics package and a killer lower light bar, all making the A/T look quite cohesive in its own, radical way. And the result would be a car no longer limited to mere road-driving.
Judging by his collection of cars, blues musician Kenny Wayne Shepherd (shown above, at left, with fellow musician George Thorogood) is an enthusiast of classic Dodge muscle cars, so it's no surprise that he is an active member of Mopar-related online communities. When his 1972 Dodge Charger turned up missing from an LA-area warehouse last Wednesday, Shepherd took to the forums of Moparts.org in an attempt to get the word out in hopes of recovering his custom classic.
The Charger was stolen along with four other vehicles, and Hot Rod reports that two women have been taken into custody since - but still no word on the car. With its blacked-out appearance (including custom Foose wheels), this car is definitely hard to miss, but Shepherd also said that the car might be even more distinguishable now due to some body damage that may have occurred as it was being driven from the warehouse lot. Shepherd's website has a full gallery of images for this '72 Charger, which also has a modern 392-cubic-inch V8 under the hood and a six-speed gearbox pulled from a Viper.
If you're in the LA area and happen to see this car, Shepherd asks that you call the LAPD West Valley Division at 818-374-7611. Here's to hoping this one-of-a-kind Charger turns up unscathed.
