Transmission was rebuilt. new clutch, throw out bearing, pressure plate, and resurfaced flywheel. All u joints with less then 500 miles. This truck was lifted when I bought it, and it was a real botch job. No way it was anywhere near safe or able to pass State Inspection. So I replaced the leaf springs with new stock height ones, and replaced the shocks as well. I replaced the steering box, pitman arm, drag link, steering arm, tie rod ends, upper knuckle bushings and races, lower knuckle bearings and races, and knuckle felts and seals. Complete brake job including shoes, wheel cylinders, master, spring and adjuster kits, and wheel seals. All of the gauges work except fuel gauge.

Dash pad is still good, not cracked or ripped, Newer seat and headliner. The doors open and close properly and do not sag. All door handles and window cranks are there and work properly. Sits on American Racing rims with military tread. New custom exhaust, (this is a quiet truck) Included in the auction are five street tires mounted on stock Dodge 8 lug rims, as well as a complete (with tires and hubs), Dana 44 front differential. Body wise, there is a little cancer on the right side cowl, and the outer rockers need to be replaced. The inner rockers and floor pans, as well as the doors are in really good shape. Some plastic on the right front fender. Mechanically, it needs a water pump, and it smokes a little when you first start it up. Otherwise it is very dependable and runs well. This is a daily driver. All this being said, please remember that you are bidding on a 44 year old truck, which I doubt that the mileage on the odometer is original, so there is no warranty, either implied or expressed. I have tried to describe the truck as accurately as possible, so if you need more info, please feel free to contact me at 516 322-3849 at a decent hour. All shipping arrangements and costs are the responsibility of the buyer. Please note that this truck does not have a title, but does have a New York State Transferable Registration. Please check with your State DMV for compatibility prior to bidding. As the truck is for sale locally, I reserve the right to end the auction at any time. I will consider a trade out side the auction for a 2nd generation Dodge Cummins.

Striving for improved fuel economy, we already knew that Chrysler will begin using a nine-speed automatic transmission in some of its new products this year, but what we haven't known is that volume at which this gearbox will be used. According to Bloomberg, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has been quoted as saying that the automaker expects to sell close to 200,000 units equipped with this new transmission in 2013. Those gear-rich trannies will be spread out across three models, consisting of the redesigned Chrysler 200, the still-unnamed Jeep Liberty replacement and the Dodge Dart.

This transmission should play a pivotal role in making Chrysler vehicles more competitive in their respective segments. Just for comparison, one of the Dart's key competitors, the Toyota Corolla, still uses a four-speed automatic, and a previous report indicates that the next-generation 200 could get up to 38 miles per gallon on the highway, which is better than most non-hybrid midsize sedans on the market. Marchionne says that the new Jeep model is expected during the second quarter of this year, but there is no word as to when the new 200 or nine-speed Dart will debut, but clearly Dodge would like to have the transmission in its compact yesterday. As for that volume figure, it definitely doesn't seem out of reach since the Dart, Liberty and 200 combined for a total of more than 225,000 units in 2012.
How many more gears can we expect in future cars? Probably not many more, since the CEO of transmission-builder ZF, Stefan Sommer, previously stated that nine speeds was the "natural limit" for transmissions.
We have good news, and we have bad news. First, the good: It's now possible to get a brand-new Dodge Viper roadster, which is nice, considering we're in the dead of summer and many of us like wind-in-the-hair motoring. Now, the bad: This is not a factory option from the automaker, instead coming courtesy of an aftermarket company called Prefix Performance, and that means it's going to cost you some serious coin.

Called Medusa, this drop-top Viper was created without the knowledge or consent of Dodge, but that's probably fine because Prefix works with the automaker already for the final preparation of the American supercar, including paint. According to the company, the current, fifth-gen Viper was built with a convertible version in mind, so no chassis strengthening is required. From the looks of the somewhat grainy photos available, the conversion appears of very high quality.
Want one? Well, that means you're going to need to procure a Viper - Prefix has 10 units ready for transformation as it stands - and that's going to cost at the very least $102,485. Then, you'll need to write a check for an additional $35,000 for Prefix to surgically remove the car's roof. Thing is, for that kind of cash, a prospective owner could buy, among other very nice options, a Viper hardtop and a loaded Miata, or a Corvette Stingray convertible and several pockets full of change. Or, perhaps a new Viper hardtop and a used, first-gen Viper convertible?
This is why we love Ralph Gilles. While in Italy hanging out with a group of Viper Club members in Europe, the SRT boss took the time to respond to a question directed at him on Instagram in regards to the future of Dodge.
Recent reports have painted a bleak picture for Dodge, but Gilles defended Chrysler's full-line brand by stating that the rumors are, "all rumors, Dodge is here to stay! It may get more focused going forward but not killed!" The idea of a "more focused" Dodge brand could lend some credibility to reports that the Grand Caravan and Durango are on their way out, which would leave Dodge solely as a car, or car-based, automaker.
