This truck was originally purchased by the US government for military use. From there, it was loaned to the WV division of forestry, who then loaned it to the Gauley Bridge VFD which is why it now has a light bar that is included and does work. The truck has like like new 16 inch tires, and like new shocks which I put on. The mileage is unknown because the cluster was messed up when I got it, so it had to be replaced. However, I believe the mileage to be low, like it is with most of these old gov trucks.
The truck runs good, but it does smoke on start up (valve seals) and the transmission shifts good. It has the 318 with the 727 automatic transmission. It also has power steering, many of which do not. The body does have a little rust, but the cab is 95% solid, and the bed only has rust on the driver 1/4 panel that is not all the way through the bed. This would make a great work truck seeing as it has the 2500 lb payload, or a great hunting truck. The price can be lowered if you do not want the 16 inch tires. They can be replaced with some 16.5 inch rollers This truck does have extra leaf springs to make it 1 1/4 ton, instead of a 3/4 ton.

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is probably one of the hottest cars of the moment mostly because of its insane, 707-horsepower supercharged V8. However, there are conflicting reports coming out that the powerplant might be having problems with its emissions compliance and may be capable of even more power.
Wed, 23 Jan 2013 17:50:00 EST
Jalopnik says that an unnamed source within Fiat Chrysler Automobiles told it that the Hellcat was having problems meeting emissions standards at its 707-horsepower tune. The person claimed that the automaker has been testing the V8 with different types of sensors, possibly to make it a bit cleaner in the future. Autoblog spoke to SRT spokesperson Dan Reid, and he said about the claimed poor emissions, "It's totally speculation."
The source also claimed that the Hellcat had been dynoed at a monumental 825 horsepower, internally. Based on the other rumor, though, it's hard to imagine the engine being emissions compliant like that. Autoblog also asked Reid about this speculation about more power and was told, "They are totally speculating about that."

Autoblog Podcast #317:
While it's not seeing the drastic facelift of its brother, the Charger, at the 2014 New York Auto Show, the 2015 Challenger is packing some upgrades of its own. It wears even more retro-inspired styling cues, and there are new 6.4-liter Scat Pack and Shaker trims.
If you thought the Challenger looked retro before, Dodge is taking things even farther with inspiration for the refresh coming from the iconic 1971 model. Up front, it has a new split grille, a larger power bulge in the hood and projector fog lights. At the rear, the classic inspiration continues with split LED taillights with Gloss Black trim, and a rear valance panel redesigned to make the 2015 model look wider and lower.
The '71 motif is carried inside as well with a high-sill center console and aluminum gauge bezels. There's still more than a touch of modernity, with an available 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system and 7-inch customizable display between the retro-inspired speedometer and tachometer. For better safety, the Challenger is also now available with forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross path detection. Stability control and electric power steering are standard across all models too.
