Here is my crew cab dodge that I just bought. It has a 440ci engine, 727 tranny, dana 60 rear, and dana 44 front. Check back soon for more info & pics as I work on it. :)

Looks like you have a lot of work ahead of you, but that's the most fun part. Wish I had one

Just towed her to the shop!



Overall, the truck seems to be in good shape for its age. There are only a few small holes on it. One on the driver's side rocker and one on the driver's side quarter; both only about the size of a quarter. So far, I just tried starting it with no luck right off. The motor just isn't turning over fast enough. It does have spark though. I tried pulling the plugs and turning the motor over to get oil flowing and I double checked the firing order. Tomorrow I'll try a few other things. Wish me luck. haha

Well... today I fixed a few things on the truck but it won't run just yet. First thing was an oil change. Then, there was a fuel line leak out back and the carb was gummed up so I replaced it with a holley. I got the plugs to spark but I don't think they are sparking hot enough. The previous owner installed the 440 out of an imperial and it came with "Lean Burn" crap. Somehow, its all spliced together with the original wires. Blah!

Just a quick update:
  • I bought a set of 37x12.5x16.5 Goodyear Wrangler MT Hummer tires and some nice 10 inch wide chrome rims:)
  • The fenders, hood, grill, bumper, and grill guard are off of the truck and I am now working on replacing engine gaskets and detailing the underhood area.
  • Tomorrow, I'm going to try to fit the new tires on.

More pictures to come soon!

I just installed my new hummer tires. I can't believe the difference they made for the looks of the truck. :)

Thank you. I'm planning on lifting it at least 6 inches but probably more. It will be a combo of suspension and body lift.
