 Here is a super rare 1959 Dodge Power Wagon W300.  This is what they call a POWER GIANT.  Really cool old truck, it is 4 wheel drive.  It has a correct 9 foot stepside bed on it, the truck is from Colorado really solid, there is a place on the passenger side floor board that will need some patching, but there is no cancer rust on the body that i have seen it is really really solid, cab corners are good, above the windshield is good firewall is good. The frame has been blasted and painted black. The front sheetmetal is just sitting on it(that will explain the gaps in the pictures), i can bolt it on if you have it transported.I bought this truck to do a cummins conversion on it, just dont have the time to do it.  it has a non original 318 poly V8, it ran when i got it, i was not worried about the motor, since it was not original and i was going to convert it anyway, it can run if you want it too.  I have an extra set of front fenders to go with it because they are hard to find.  it will be a great candidate for restoration or conversion, it is really really RARE! I have more pictures if you want to see something specific please ask and i will send the pictures too you.  if you have any questions, please let me know and i will answer them to the best of my ability, if you have something to trade, let me know. Thanks for looking!

NHTSA probing Ram recall pace, communication

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 17:59:00 EST

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced that it's looking into Chrysler Group's handling of a pair of recalls affecting roughly one million Ram pickup trucks. Reuters is reporting that the regulatory agency is focusing on the availability (or lack thereof) of parts and "poor communications" from the automaker in its investigation.
"Customers have been advised in accordance with the regulations governing recalls," Chrysler spokesman Eric Mayne told Reuters via email. "We are continually replenishing our supply of replacement parts. Chrysler Group regrets any inconvenience our customers may have experienced."
NHTSA disagrees, arguing that the recalls, which affect 972,000 trucks from 2003 to 2012, are being delayed by the lack of parts.

Chrysler recalling 2009-2010 Ram 1500, Dodge Dakota pickups over axle pinion nut

Mon, 08 Oct 2012 17:45:00 EST

Chrysler is issuing a recall for the 2009 and 2010 Ram 1500 and Dodge Dakota pickup trucks due to improper installation of the rear axle pinion nut. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 44,300 trucks are affected by the recall, and there have been 12 confirmed incidents including one crash.
The issue on both trucks is that the pinion nut is loosening on some trucks due to a lack of thread adhesive, and it is causing the rear axle to lock up resulting in loss of vehicle control. NHTSA's recall notice says that eight incidents occurred at speeds over 35 miles per hour and most also exhibited driveshaft failures as well since the loss of the pinion nut would cause the gear to separate from the driveshaft. In one complaint, the driveshaft separated from the rear axle and punctured the gas tank.
Chrysler will begin sending out recall notices to affected owners in November, but scroll down to see the official NHTSA notice.
