this rig has sentimental value,the gf and i joke, that inside this truck is where we concieved our first child,even in its current condition i would not think of parting it out, someday it will drive again,i really need a truck to tow the cage,actually the motor still starts, i just cant get the power to the ground without the tranny and t-case, if i had an extra 700 bucks layin around ::) there is a 75 power wagon fer sale at one of the junk yards with 360/manual trans(not sure which)and 205 t-case,a HD front 44 and dana 60 rear, that starts and shifts gears ,i also have a 76 for parts but all needed parts went into the cage too, i'll have to take a pic of it to put on to see if anyone wants to trade body stuff fer trans and/or t case,it is alot straiter than my 79 too cause the drivers door of the 79 is pretty hammered from the time i had to drive thru a chain link fence to get out of a ditch ,but that was another story

Dodgeman - I am hanging with you! By the sounds of things, the stories you have would be worth the many beers I would donate to get them out of you!

The fishing thing reminds me of that old saying.....

"Give a man a fish and he eats for today, teach him how to fish and he will drive his Ramcharger in the middle of the lake, sit on the back and drink beer.........."

;D

Or in my case, the ex tried to take my RC with her. NOT!!! She's gone but the RC stayed, hence the name Victoria. Cool RC!!! ;D I'm going to have to show your pic to a friend of mine who owns a '79 RC and loves (lives) to fish.

aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh the good ole days , maybe some day i will be able to take my boys out in the lake to fish too, we didnt start catchin any til we were out a few feet ,just couldn't cast far enough to get the bait off the ledge which was out about 25 feet from shore so a few beers later and we decided to drive in , it really paid off

Was it lifted? If not how much fender did you need to cut to fit the 36's?
