1977 Dodge Power Wagon Sno Commander on 2040-cars
Jefferson, Ohio, United States
Up for auction is a 1977 Dodge Power Wagon Sno Commander with 360 automatic transmission, and Western plow. Has 70,511 original miles. Truck was a community plow truck in a development in Illinois. Bought it on Ebay April 2013 for the purpose of restoring it. Death in family forces sale of several items, including this truck. Never plated it, just plowed my own driveway last winter. It started right up when we had -14 degrees for a high in Northeast Ohio. Truck is really in incredible shape for it's age. It's going to need floor pans, has tin riveted down as temporary fix. Back bedrail rotted, tailgate hold bed together. Rear DMI bumper shot, seat needs reupholstered. All gauges work except fuel. Amp meter broke but aftermarket one installed. All lights on truck work. Heater fan only runs on high. Wipers work, as does window wash. Truck running on '99 Dodge Ram wheels, as the original split rims got accidentally scrapped. Power steering is amazing. Was having trouble with plow, however, it goes up, left, right without a problem, but going down was a problem frequently, slight exhaust leak around bottom of "Y" pipe. Haven't really looked into the issues with the plow after the winter was over. Sure I am missing something, but any questions at all please ask. Have a clean Illinois title, everything on the truck, is the way I bought it. I did nothing to it. For sale locally also. Good luck bidding

What do the Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger and Ram 1500 all have in common? Yes, they're all Chrysler products, and two of them are based on the same platform. And we're sure you could find more similarities between them all, but the common trait we're looking at here is that, while they all come standard in rear-drive form, they're also available with all-wheel drive. And it's the transmission in those models that's the subject of the latest recall notice issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Tue, 01 Jul 2014 16:37:00 EST
The output shaft on the eight-speed automatic transmission supplied by ZF to Chrysler for the AWD versions of the 300, Charger and Ram 1500 is apparently prone to fracture. That in the end could leave the vehicle without power and could, according to the NHTSA investigation, increase the chance of a crash. The vehicle could also roll away if even if left in Park without the handbrake applied.
That's why Chrysler is calling in 4,194 examples of those three models from the 2013 model year. Dealers will be responsible for inspecting the transmissions and, where necessary, replace the entire unit. See the full recall notice below for all the details.
Hold onto your butts. "600-plus horsepower" is what we were told to expect from the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT with its 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 engine. But as we've just learned, those were incredibly conservative numbers. Dodge has officially announced that the range-topping Challenger will hit the asphalt with 707 - seven hundred and seven - horsepower, making it the "most powerful muscle car ever."

Of course, 707 hp is only part of the story, as the Hellcat has also been confirmed to produce 650 pound-feet of torque. All that power will run exclusively to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission that differs from other Challengers. The new gearbox, 8HP90 (rather than the 8HP70) is "upgraded to handle the extra power and torque," says Dan Reid, SRT's manager of product design and motorsports.
We certainly hope you're prepared to spend a ton of money replacing tires.
As if driving the old Dodge Viper (not the fancy new SRT model) isn't intimidating enough, imagine trying to wrangle that V10 beast and then suddenly having the airbags deploy. Yikes. That's apparently what could happen to some 3,660 Viper models from the 2003 and 2004 model years, and as such, Chrysler has issued a recall.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, part of the car's airbag control module may fail, causing the bags or seatbelt pre-tensioners to deploy without warning while the vehicle is in operation. That's a dangerous scenario in any car, let alone one offering insane horsepower a near-total paucity of safety nannies should things get squirrely.
Owners will be notified this month about the recall, though a remedy is not expected to be available until later this year. Scroll down for the full NHTSA statement.
