    No, but we ought to, it really needs a converter, and sticky tires. It feels like a good 440. Maybe me and her and our son’s should compete at the strip this summer. Maybe at the strip where we met each other many moons ago.

      You do realize, that I had an alert this morning that Sam had quoted me and we were discussing weight of trucks. Your first post here today (1054) was "tar and feather". I just want you to realize that when mud flies, you usually threw the first pie. :)

        Well, when I say death knock, I mean it knocked terribly for 12 miles and locked up as I pulled to a stop in our driveway. The old Mopar always got me home.

                Our cold spell snapped today and we hit around 38*, so I did start it up today and let it fully warm up. I also shoveled most of the snow out of the bed and the bed looks rock solid, but still some ice that I couldn't get out with the plastic snow shovel :D . Lights, blinkers, dash lights, wipers, stereo, dome light, back up lights, brake lights all work great. Supposed to be even warmer tomorrow :)

                  It snowed here today. Suppose to be in the 40s tomorrow. Got my truck back from the shop last night.
                  They replaced the front cover gasket the water pump the lower radiator hose the thermosat and the by pass hose.
                  Now it has a low coolant engine code and won't built any pressure in the system.
                  The hits just keep on rolling.

                  Sounds like that truck is too nice to cut up.

                  Clean it up, put a street friendly 360 or SB stroker in it and drive it.

                  Keep searching for a candidate you can cut up without cringing.

                  The only cutting I'll do is cutting out some rust spots. For now it is ligher because of the missing metal.

                  It already has a 5.9 magnum that is running good it just is being a pain in the butt with the cooling system.

                  I would maybe add some cam and headers and do the intake mods. A stroker would great.

                  It is a nice driving truck but sometimes the four wheel drive does not engage when you first try.

                      Sorry I was excited by your post.
                      I'm planning to meet 318wr at the track with my truck against his beast. Just for fun.

                              You're the one who first mentioned hacksaw blades and stuff to get it light enough to do 10 seconds...
                              Actually I thought that was the whole reason you were buying a cheap vehicle to begin with was to be able to hack it up...?..

                                Stick a for sale sign on it for 1500.00 more and maybe some sucker or I mean buyer will grab it. That wouldn’t count against your 5000.00 as that’s just smart horse-trading.

                                I'm confident I could put a decent set of 2nd hand tires on it, pressure wash it and make a good profit on the truck. But, were not selling it, we like it. We have no regrets buying the truck whatsoever. We'd rather go 11.9 in the truck than 10.9 in a Diplomat
