there was one of these on e-bay that might make a good prts trk for someone--I imagine those rear doors are very rare. I think it was in junk cars and parts. I looked at it for a bit but seven is enough for now!
hey, mopar1 the mechanic I bought my power wagon from has a crew cab long bed just like that for sale! In fact it donated its tail gate to replace my tacoed one (oops) If you live in or around ca. and are interested tell me and I'll post some pics.
I guess it does not have many options AM radio (still there, doesn't work) It's an Adventurer camper special. 9000# GVW, 400 BB, Had the dual gas tank option (got rid of the gas tank inside.....something about 25 gallons of fuel sloshing behind the back seat with my kids straped to it didn't seem safe to me ) first year for front disk brakes. Power steering and brakes is it. Next year I will be adding A/C without a doubt! Maybe a radio sooner IF I get tired of listining to the big block and dual exhausts For now I am just getting it ready for my daily ride. Pictures of the body work in progress will be coming soon! Thanks for the encouraging words
Nice project!!! I am currently building a 1983 Crewcab duallie, I am swapping in a cummins with a 618 auto trans. That 165" wheelbase is awesome on the highway, even unloaded with a 1 ton suspension, it floats along like an Imperial! Do you know if anyone has succesfully swapped in power windows in the rear doors of a Dodge crewcab? Its a project I want to try. I will take some pictures and post them soon. Good luck on your project. Murfman
FYI A 1st gen cummins is a bolt in swap into your truck, you may need to modify the core support for the big radiator, but everything else fits! If you are considering a cummins let me know, I have done a lot of research on the swap Murfman
Thanks PowerWagonGreg for the kind words! I have been driving it in a lot of snow lately, It does real good for a 2WD. I have been through 8" of non drifted snow with no trouble and some snow drifts too. I am shoping around this area for a 4x4 to use as a parts truck so that I can get the 4x4 system for my truck. Thanks again
Wow, I found my truck's post back on page 12. Last post was January 3rd 2003. Thought I would bump it up and post a newer picture of it.
I finally got most all the parts to convert over to 4X4 but I don't think that I will do it now. Seems like too much work to change the engine crossover and everything else.
Besides 2wd's are cool too. I just need to get it up in the air some because it sets too low for my liking
I just so happen to have an unmarried transfer case with crossmember that would bolt right up under that truck, along with a front axle.... (minus hubs, minor detail) everything you'd need to convert it to 4x4 cept the front driveshaft.
