FF54 toy build
 
Guess the title says it all. I bought this truck at the time because I wanted a four wheel drive for playing since I have my work truck which I normally drive. 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 Sport. 318, 5 speed, 4x4. Stanard Cab short bed. This is the first dodge I have owned. This picture is the closest I can get to when I bought it. I built the front bumper and had taken the stock 16" aluminum rims off and put on Cragar Soft 8's 15x8 inch rims with 33x10.50 BFG All Terrain TA/KO's.

Here is another view of the bumper.

Then I built a flatbed and pipe rear bumper.

Next on the agenda was cab corners, rocker panels, and fenders. Here are some before shots.

Next up was an engine swap. Took the tired 318 out and put a 360 with some goodies in.

Installed some Corbeau Baja RS suspension seats. The red has since been painted black in most of these pictures too.

On the NY State line in Warren County. Thanks for the compliments guys. I got more to add, but I got tired of being on the computer for the day when I did this.

I'm just cross the way in Tioga County on the border of NY. Can't wait to see the extra pics. Definite rep points for this build man.

I would have posted pics tonight but after workin twelve hours at my day job we got called out for a brush fire and I just got back from that. Starting again on the fire tomorrow morning, dodge will be out to play.

Today we got called to assist our neighboring fire department with a structure fire. So we sent an engine, a tanker and an ambulance. They established a water supply in a very remote location using two portable pumps and were having trouble keeping up with the tankers that were filling at the water supply then hauling the water to scene to dump. So they called for our trailer pump and since I was late showing up I was still at the station. So I brought it. This was after I had drove ten miles back of rain soaked roads but when we were up at the location, the truck/pump were absolutely covered in mud.
