Hello and thank you for looking at my monster! I had hoped to restore it completely but I can't take her with me when I leave and I can't leave her here, so...
I've done so much work to this truck...had the rear end, transmission and transfer case gone over and everything checked out really nicely. Mechanic said the rear-end looked brand new. It does have the floating axles, and the lockers on the front are made by Warn. It is 3/4 ton and will definitely pull and haul, the frame is in really good shape.

We put the windshields in, repaired the floorboards and sealed them and then put in leather bucket seats (VERY comfortable). I also have the big mud tires for the buyer to enjoy. I have the door panels and some other odds and ends also that are not in the pictures. The body has a little to be desired but is decent and functional as it is. It has some issues in the normal places such as rockers, bed corners, etc, and has been painted before.
The engine runs great and the truck does everything it should. The problem it does have is that we have not cleaned and sealed the fuel tank, so the truck will eventually suck up junk and stall. This is the only mechanical problem that I know of, but because of this it will have to be trailered to its new home.
*I've got more than $5,000 in this truck and I know I'm going to take a loss on it, but in this economy that's just the way it is. But, if the bidding gets up to $4,000 I'll throw in the D100 'parts truck' for free!!! The parts truck has a great body and would run with a new carburetor and it only has 30,000 original miles. If the Power Wagon does not sell for $4,000 the winning buyer will have the option to purchase the parts truck for $700.*

I can pinpoint the exact moment when I fell in love with this car. It was starting down a nearly straight entrance ramp at 15 miles per hour when I buried the throttle. In a moment, I was thrown back into my seat as the big SRT8's engine came to life with commensurate sound, fury and force, bringing me up to 75 mph in what felt like two blinks of an eye. This thing feels so much quicker than its 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque would lead you to believe. And mashing the right pedal never, ever gets old.

But beyond sheer speed, I found a whole lot to like about the Charger SRT8 during my week with the Pitch Black test car here in Detroit. And while the whole Super Bee kit isn't really my style, it's really easy to overlook those badges for a package that offers so much for so little.
Students and teachers at a Washington community college are up in arms following an order from Chrysler that it must destroy the pre-production Dodge Viper that was donated to the school's automotive technology program ten years ago.

The Viper in question is said to be the fourth off the production line, based on its VIN, and has had its emissions controls disabled, allowing its ten-cylinder engine to produce 600 horsepower, according to a report from Yahoo! Autos. As one of the first Vipers ever produced, the school's AT instructors claim it could be worth $250,000 in a museum, while a local news report purports that Jay Leno once tried to purchase the car, but the sale was prevented by Chrysler.
As pointed out by our friends at Autobytel, though, there are a lot of things in this story that don't quite add up. Immediately noticeable from the news report embedded below - which shows the car at South Puget Sound Community College - is that the car in question is not a 1992 model. When the Viper went on sale in 1992, it was only available as an RT/10 with a (flimsy) soft top, like the red car shown above. But the car featured in the report from KING5 News (inset image) is clearly a hardtop Viper GTS, which didn't enter production until 1996. And even if, as reported by a local newspaper, the hardtop featured is a prototype, it doesn't explain the lack of another iconic feature of the first Vipers - their distinctive side pipes. This kind of pokes holes in the school's argument that this is the fourth Viper to ever roll down the line. At best, this appears to be a pre-production Viper GTS.
Dodge has significantly updated its full-size Durango for the 2014 model year, giving the seven-passenger hauler a fresh look and a well-rounded boost of competitive features as it enters its fourth year in the showroom.
Cosmetically, it is hard to miss the revised front end with projector-beam headlamps and LED daytime running lamps, "floating" crosshair grille, a taller front bumper and a new lower fascia. The rear end of the facelifted Durango has been redesigned with the automaker's now-signature LED "racetrack" taillamps and resculpted rear fascia. All of the wheels are new too, with 18- and 20-inch options for each trim level with a variety of factory finishes.
Inside the cabin, buyers can select the automaker's latest Uconnect infotainment system with a full suite of infotainment features and connectivity accessed through an 8.4-inch touchscreen. Other optional goodies include a heated steering wheel, heated second-row seating and a Blu-Ray player capable of running unique programs on the twin individual rear monitors.
