  • Anybody Into Trucks?

    I just joined this forum. It looks fun.

    I thought I would ask if anybody is into pickup trucks. I have gotten to where I like lowered 2wd short bed pickups better than muscle cars. I see quite a few nice older trucks locally. I've noticed 80's Chevies and 70's Fords are getting more popular.

    I picked this truck up a little over a year ago. You see Fords and Chevies (nothing wrong with that), but you never see Dodges of this vintage. When I take it out, people notice it because most 70's-80's Dodges are beat.

    It is a slant 6 truck that has been converted to big block. It currently has a smog era 440 under the hood. I have lowered it 4"/6", swapped the wheels, and fixed a few small things. I am currently rounding up parts for a 451 (400 block/440 crank) build up.

    I also have this truck that I bought brand new. It is a 1998. In that time, I've only lowered it. I spent too much money building my 1985 Shelby Charger and didn't have the money or time for my truck.

        I love that '67 C. I'm a Mopar guy at heart, but I'm also a big fan of the 67-72 GM trucks. I've seen a few really nice mid 80's GM trucks that have gotten me to digging those too.

                  Nice Ranger. That 5.0 looks like it was born there.

                          sadly, it's dirty, and there's a tree growing out of it's snout... I love it, and it never got a chance to not be a truck:

                            I like a dodge ram, and have owned my fair share...but your vintage rig is light years cooler than any of the ones I have owned...

                            The lowered stance is killer...nice job man!
