1978 Dodge W200 Custom 4x4. Automatic with the 400 engine. Dana spicer 44 & Dana spicer 60. This truck belonged to an eccentric WWll vet, (who has since passed), who had this vehicle prepared as his "the end is here, lets get out of Dodge" vehicle. He had the back of this truck packed full with the things he would need when he saw the mushroom cloud over Boise. The truck just sat in covered storage most of the time, ready to go. There are thousands of dollars in receipts for things he had done to this truck, for whatever reason. He had a heavy duty radiator put in, overload leaf springs added to the rear, a two stage shift kit put in the transmission, new exhaust system, trailer brakes, heavy duty rear tow bumper and more. The truck is sitting on new Michelin 10 ply tires mounted on beautiful chromed steel rims and has 2 fairly new (95%+tread) mounted 8 ply Uniroyal tires in the back for spares along with two extra Dodge rims. The body is really straight with the exception of two small dings just behind the passenger door, kind of visable in the pictures. There are minor gravel chips and scratches you would expect to see on a truck that has been driven this many miles. (I am presently driving this truck occasionally and expect the mileage to be around 32,000 by the end of September).  He installed a heavy duty rear tow bumper (the original chrome bumper comes with the truck). The canopy was built and purchased in Boise; it is in exceptional condition for its age, is wired, has working lights inside and comes with two locks on the canopy door. The whole back door wall of the canopy unhinges and is removable if you have a need to carry something large. With the condition of the bed I have to assume this canopy has been on the truck pretty much since new. The interior of the truck is hard to believe. Its got a working real classy :) push button am radio. The glass is perfect. There is no a/c. There are a few very small places on the truck that look like touch up paint but I don't know. The following description and pictures are some of what was left in the vehicle when I bought it. I'm not listing everything, but most of what comes with it is listed.
In no particular order: spare water hoses, 2 thermostats, 3 distributer caps, rotors, condensers, points, heavy duty equalizer hitch, 3 carburetor rebuild kits, 2 five gallon gas cans (full), 2 hydraulic jacks, 2 lug wrenches, 1 case of quarts of 30 wt Pennzoil, 1 large box containing brake fluid, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, 2 gallons of anti freeze and more, 3 control modules, jumper cables, 1 dip stick, 2 sets of spark plug wires, lots of spare belts, upper and lower radiator hoses, 3 radiator caps, Dodge service manual, carburetor service manual, 3 oil filters, 1 air filter, 3 alternators, 1 starter, 1 fuel pump, 3 fan clutches, spare fuses, various packs of bulbs, rolls of wire and I'm sure there is more.If you would like to see more pictures or come see the truck, let me know...Rick...208-866-1121...NO texting please. The successful high bidder must submit a $1000.00 non-refundable payment deposit with PAYPAL within 24 hours of the close of the auction to secure the vehicle. I will not take PAYPAL for final payment or balance. I will take U.S. or Wells Fargo certified bank check or cash in person only for final payment no exceptions. Buyer agrees to pay remaining balance due within 7 days of the close of the auction. All financial transactions must be completed before delivery of the vehicle. This truck is approximately 30 miles west of Boise, Idaho and is being sold in an as is condition. For anyone who flies into Boise to pick up this truck I will pick you up at the airport (baring unforeseen circumstances).

2013 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee

Tue, 12 Mar 2013

I can pinpoint the exact moment when I fell in love with this car. It was starting down a nearly straight entrance ramp at 15 miles per hour when I buried the throttle. In a moment, I was thrown back into my seat as the big SRT8's engine came to life with commensurate sound, fury and force, bringing me up to 75 mph in what felt like two blinks of an eye. This thing feels so much quicker than its 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque would lead you to believe. And mashing the right pedal never, ever gets old.
But beyond sheer speed, I found a whole lot to like about the Charger SRT8 during my week with the Pitch Black test car here in Detroit. And while the whole Super Bee kit isn't really my style, it's really easy to overlook those badges for a package that offers so much for so little.

NHTSA investigating 110,000 Ram 2500s and 3500s, one death alleged

Fri, 23 May 2014

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has launched an investigation focusing on 110,000 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups from model years 2004 to 2006. One death has already been reported, according to NHTSA, due to a potential fault with the clutch interlocks on manual-transmission versions of the heavy duty pickup.
According to the report, these trucks can be started without depressing the clutch. There have been three reports so far, and as we mentioned above, one very sad incident seems to have resulted in the death of a child.
"One complaint involved an incident that occurred when a child was able to enter the vehicle and start the ignition without depressing the clutch. The vehicle then moved forward striking another child resulting in a fatality," NHTSA said in the investigation bulletin, which you can view below.

2014 Dodge Durango priced from $29,795*

Wed, 14 Aug 2013

With all the new updates the Dodge Durango is getting for 2014, one thing that Dodge isn't changing on its big SUV is the starting price. Just like the current model year, the 2014 Dodge Durango will be priced from $29,795 (*not including $995 for destination).
This price is for the base SXT model, but the 2014 Durango is also offered in a new Limited trim level (replacing the Crew) as well as the sporty R/T and the luxurious Citadel. The Durango Limited starts at $35,995 (an increase of $800 over the 2013 Crew), while the R/T now starts at $38,995 (up $2,500). The top-of-the-line Durango Citadel will start at $40,995 - an increase of $1,000.
The many improvements made to the 2014 Durango include revised exterior styling, added in-cabin tech and an eight-speed automatic transmission (expected to return better fuel economy). Dodge is saying that the V6 models will get 25 miles per gallon on the highway while V8 models are expected to score 23-mpg highway, but there are no official EPA numbers to report yet.
