80W150 is on a distinguished road

Gotta admit, you all have some nice trucks. Wish I still had my PW. But, mine wasn't anywhere near the caliber of any of your trucks.

Mine was a 1980 W150. First year for part time 4x4 in half ton. Lock outs, non CAD axle. It was a custom package so had bucket seats and console. 318 4bbl. I went through the top end. Did the valves/seats, rv cam, new springs, timing gear/chain, edelbrock 4bbl (I'll never do that again), dual exhaust, rebuilt the trans myself. 31x10.50 Cooper discoverer stt's.

It ran good. Couldn't hardly get the old tank stuck. (even though I did sink it twice) Shifted hard which was great in the mud but on pavement it could be a little harsh.

Only reason why I got rid of it was the frame had rotted in a few places so I decided it was time to retire it. Sad day indeed.

Here's a pic.

If Dodge trucks are a sickness I don't want the cure.
