I could do with a pic of the passenger side just to show that it's not T-boned or something, lol.

One question...it needs ball joints, the driver's seat is shot, and those wheels suck.  Where does one find the parts to "fix" it?

On a side note...I like the Mexican RC's from about mid quarters forward, but that Caravan back end just plain kills it for me.  :(

Mexico, of course, lol. ;D Probably most of the stuff is the same as a 2WD Ram 1500 of the same year so it shouldn't be too hard to source parts.

Exactly. As the ad says, it's just a 2000 Ram 1500 Front end & chassis, so ball joints would be a simple find.

I want one. It'd look nice with a better set of wheels, lower it a bit, and get rid of the running boards.
4wd hasnt been a requirement in this country since they invented those things called roads. ;D

I take it that you live in a city somewhere? 4WD is still very much a requirement around here, especially in the winter, lol.

Why waste time with that? Just keep the truck and wheel it.

Maybe all the roads in Ohio are paved, they aren't here. Maybe they all get plowed too, not here. 4x4 is a NECESSITY in this country in the winter, not a luxury.

Suburbs/rural ;D I'll admit, 4wd is convenient, but if you have common sense and know how to drive, it really isnt necessary. Atleast around here. I know my truck is barely 1wd on a good day, so i know not to try and go places i know i cant go.

Lol, you guys obviously don't live in the mountains.  From my house I have to look up at least at a 45° angle to see the horizon in most directions.  There is no such thing as flat ground larger than a mile or so except downtown.  And we have it easy here since we normally do not get that much snow.  I bet the northern half of the US would shut down for weeks at a time if 4WD didn't exist.  2Wd and smart driving will only get you so far and then you need 4WD or better.
