My mighty dodge 85 Ram 50 2.3 Turbo Diesel

Been meaning to throw these pics up for awhile.. had a accident at work, and been outa commission for a while but here they areSo goes the title, its a 1985 Dodge ram 50, with a Mits. 2.3L turbo diesel. Bought the truck from a farmer in Cherryville last spring for 700$ Flatdecked it back to kelowna, the thing barly ran and was covered in rust. all was stock with the exception of a beefed up rear bumper, anyhow went over the truck the motor problems ended up being a clogged up fuel filter. i figured while i was in the rebuild process id rebuild the turbo, being as it was speewing oil. after that it was just body work and making it trail and road worthy, took me most of the summer and alot of blood, sweat and beers but things came together in the end.after the body work n stuff, i ended up crankin the torsions,3 inch BL, and sat it on a set of 32's sourced from a local pawn shop. also ran it straight pipe to a 3 and a half inch stack. also running a 1000w rockford 12' via my getto try of a blow thru setup but it work and sounds crazy,any way its still a work in progress and i havent seen to many around so figured post this up hope ya enjoy! cheers

thanks man, yeah thats the stock battery location, kinda strange, its always in the back of my mind when im in rough terrain, i know that one of these days the petty rusted metal try holding it is gunna give out then fly under my back tire.. im considering relocating it up to my box with the rest of my dual batt setup.
