Thought id throw some pics up of my dodge, even tho im abit overwhelmed by the cool and awesome rams on this forum hehe, but this will be cool later on.










Plans for it are to make it 4x4, jack it up icelandic style and throw on some 38'' inch tyres. Ill transplant a 5.9l cummins into it later on, but first things first, clean the rust and paint it pearl white. So, what do ya think?

I agree, your truck is already cool! I hardly even see any of the older ones anymore, just makes me miss my D150 that much more, thanks for sharing your pics! :smileup:

Plan is to modify it, but firstly clean the rust out of the body and chassis. I want to get a 5.9 in it and bigger tyres. The RWD doesn't work good during winter here, so i want to make it 4WD. using the D44 and D60 housings.

Sorry for low updates, but I've been looking for a bigger shed too work in, and finally found one that im using now. So I started too rip the front off (will update more as it goes.)

Newest plans with this car is too dope up a 318 V8 with 360 heads, maybe even change internals and stick a turbo on there for the heck of it. I'm painting it pearl white, and i hope in the end that it will look like a dragster pickup.

Some photos:

Did A bit of tearing today...

I´m taking pics everytime i go into the shop to work on the car. I've finally decided a name for him.

Jötunn.

Jötunns are Ice giants from the old norse mythology, and I think it suits him good. hehe

Looking good man.. I just finished a full restore on a 83 ramcharger at the beginning it feels like your not getting anywhere but keep at it and you will be happy you did totally worth it.. And when all said and done you will have a sense of pride towards that truck cuz u know you did all the work on it.. Also I'm glad u got a first gen your doing up not to many around and probably the best years of the dodge trucks in my opinion..
