1968 Dodge Charger Charger With Dodge Durango Drivetrain on 2040-cars
Warren, Oregon, United States
Feel free to ask me any questions about the car : firstname.lastname@example.org .
Custom built 1968 Dodge Charger. The previous owner, after watching an episode of the Dukes Boys in which the
General Lee was turned into a 4x4 to chase some Jeeps decided he wanted a 4x4 General Lee of his own. So he found
a Charger body that was missing its floor....as well as a few other items and grafted it to a 2000 Dodge Durango
4x4 complete floor pan, frame, firewall, all running gear, seats and digital dash. The donor vehicle has fuel
injected engine, abs brakes, disc front brakes, air bags, cruise, tilt wheel, a/c, heat, 7in monitor with
cd/dvd/backup camera capabilities,Bluetooth capabilities and 10" subs with 750 watt amp. The tires are Dune
Grappler tires ordered straight from Nitto and a brand new extra tire in trunk. Engine is a 4.7 V/8 Auto
The ending result is the style of a classic car, but the drivability and comforts of a new one!
It is autographed (and cleared over) on the trunk lid by Bo(John Schneider), Luke(Tom Wopat), Daisy(Catherine
Bach), James Best(Sheriff Rosco), Sonny Shroyer(Enos Strate), Rick Hurst(Cletus) and Ben Jones(Cooter). The car
also comes with a compound bow with fake sticks of dynamite is also signed by Tom Wopat and John Schneider.
Since I have owned the car I have gone through most of the suspension bushings, front shocks, replaced the a/c
compressor, built a custom bumper that is powder coated and recently replaced the top vinyl decal. I purchased a
complete decal set for the car so it comes with spare decals for the doors, trunk and the General Lee for the roof.
The car also comes with various new door and window seals. I also replaced the door hinges with new and doors
close very nicely. Also has a new battery. Currently there is 135000 miles on it and it runs flawlessly. The car
is very presentable and nice looking from any angle. There are a few small bubbles on the car and body filler used
as gauged from a magnet. The only real gripe I have is that the 4x4 shifter linkage was modified and likes to
argue to go into 4 wheel drive. The transfer case is fineÖitís the linkage that binds.
Driving this car brings a great big smile to your face....not to mention all those people you pass. There isn't a
day that I drive the car where I don't see a camera phone pointed in my direction....so you had better be a people
person if you buy this car. The exhaust has a very nice sound. Car is titled as a 1968 Charger and the title is
free and clear.

How to turn a Dodge airport tug into a trail slayerSun, 16 Nov 2014
Sometimes, having a ton of fun requires takes a ton of work. Just nine days before the so-called Ultimate Adventure 2014, the folks behind 4-Wheel & Off-Road had 40 tasks to complete in order to turn the ratty truck pictured above into a machine that could excel on treacherous off-road trails while still being able to handle highway jaunts. Much of process behind the build was chronicled on the latest episode of Dirt Every Day.
The team's vehicle started life as a 1990 Dodge tug truck that spent part of its life hauling around airplanes. The builders hung on to the Cummins six-cylinder diesel, but they tossed out practically everything else for the project, with some seriously heavy-duty replacement parts for the transmission, transfer case, axles and a whole lot more. The process was certainly a ton of work, but the end result looks like a fantastic crawler.
Sure, it might have been easier to bring a truck that was already prepared, but where would the fun in that have been? Stay tuned until the end of the video for a few glimpses of the completed Dodge and peek at some of the punishment it goes through.
How Dodge dealers are earning the right to sell HellcatsWed, 10 Sep 2014
We all hate the idea of the dreaded dealer markup when it comes to buying a highly anticipated new car. Take the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, for example. You might spend hours reading about its supercharged V8 and speccing the model just right in the configurator, but when it finally comes down to laying down the cash, the dealer adds thousands of dollars as a "market adjustment" on the muscle machine of your dreams. As it turns out, when the Hellcat starts hitting showrooms in the third quarter, Dodge is trying to make sure that's not the case.
Dealer orders for the much-hyped Hellcat recently started, but Dodge boss Tim Kuniskis has put some special caveats in place to ensure that the Hellcat makes it to the road quickly. The initial allocation is based on the number of Dodge products that a showroom has sold in the last 180 days, and a second allotment in December is based on the last 90 days of sales and 30-day turnover. "You sell a lot of Darts for me, Journeys for me, Durangos for me, I'm going to give you the rights to this one, too, because this is a halo of the brand," said Kuniskis to Automotive News.
Furthermore, how quickly the Hellcat sells is also going to decide whether showrooms get more of them. "If you want to market-adjust the car, that's your right. But if your days-on-lot goes above what the other guys that are selling them at MSRP is, they will end up earning the allocation because their days-on-lot will be lower," he said to Automotive News. Obviously, this doesn't prevent dealers from marking up the Challenger SRT, but the strategy certainly discourages it.
Dodge engineers trying to shoehorn Pentastar into Dart?Tue, 19 Nov 2013
The fact that the Dart's launch has been a pretty dismal affair isn't what we'd call secret. Judging by its mounting inventories and poor critical reception, Dodge's successor to its unloved Caliber has struggled since it hit the market. And while both of those are difficult problems to address, at least their cause is well known - the powertrain.
Even Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has acknowledged that the powertrain options in the Dart are substandard, admitting at January's Detroit Auto Show that the powertrains are "less than ideal." Leading with the 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder found in the Fiat 500 Abarth left a bad taste in the mouths of consumers thanks to the laggy engine and dead throttle response (to say nothing of the manual and dual-clutch gearboxes that needed more refinement). The addition of the 184-horsepower 2.4-liter Tigershark in the Dart GT has helped matters some, but apparently Auburn Hills doesn't think it's quite enough.
If rumors are to be believed - get that salt ready - a possible solution may be in the works. A report from Allpar is claiming that Dodge is considering fitting a Pentastar V6 into the Dart's engine bay. As the Mopar-obsessed website points out, the critically acclaimed Pentastar is available in three different sizes - 3.0 liters, 3.2 liters and the original 3.6 liters. We don't get the 3.0 here in the US, but the 3.2 can be found in the new Jeep Cherokee and the 3.6 has been seemingly fitted to every model Chrysler can shoehorn it into.
