Hey what do you guys thing about this. I just baught a 1989 dodge 150 le power ram Mountain tough series. its a short box regular cab with a rolbar from the factory. its gotta 318 throttlebody and a 4 speed standard and a np203 or 205 transfercase all in mint condition. 4;11 gears front and back with a posi in the back The trucks in mint shape besides the clear coats coming of. i paid 2700 for it you think that was wise and also do you think its worth it do some work . like body and suspesion lift 38 mud terrains and possible convert her over to propane. Or just maybe drop a hemi in. THe guys at the dodge dealership confirm that dodge made a select few mountain toughs.

why is it a poser truck?
one ton running gear is a better point to start. but you can impress the girlfriend with the mountain man stuff. take it out wheeling and find out what you need.

1/2 ton, don't go bigger than 35's. Dana 44 front, 9 1/4 rear, NP208 t-case more than likely. Lifts are for one thing only, and that's bigger tires. Bigger tires are for one thing only, more ground clearance. Do anything for looks only and we will rag you endlessly. Stay away from body lifts, go suspension. Converting to propane is STOOPID. Don't bother. Hemi, yeah good luck buddy, you have no clue how much money you'd be in it for. Just build a stout carb'd 360, it'll make you more than happy and bolt right in. That 318 is definetely underpowering a truck like that, especially with TBI...

06-19-2006, 10:54 PM
youve never seen mine larry. and shaun, you know i whooped your ass on saturday i dropped you 4 times, josh had to keep stopping it so go take your dodge and push that pile off a cliff.. and yuo say yours used 400 in gas for may long? io call; bullshiit my straight six uses like 20 for a day driving all day
06-19-2006, 11:09 PM
saw it at tysons place. bag of shit.
i have a straight 6. it costs 15 bucks to go from vernon to kelowna and back. so i know you are full of shit right there. 16mpg on 33's on the highway with 3.55's.
the 318 puts out more then a 300, or a 302 in stock trim.
how the hell could you possibly use 400 bucks of fuel in 4 days... i've driven from here to prince george on less then that.
