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.

Painless Wiring Harness!
Trailer Brake System!
Complete Brake System, lines included.
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.*

Chrysler has announced that it will issue three separate recalls that will cover as many as 1.2 million Ram pickup trucks for "steering-system tie rods that may have been misaligned during assembly or steering-system service." The vast majority of these trucks were sold in the United States, though some trucks in Mexico, Canada or overseas will be called in, as well.

The largest of the three recalls covers an estimated 842,400 model-year 2003-2008 Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks. Two smaller campaigns will bring 294,000 model-year 2008-2012 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups, chassis cabs and 2008 Ram 1500 4x4 Mega Cabs; plus 43,500 model-year 2008-2012 Ram 4500 and 5500 4x4 chassis cabs into the dealer to be checked and repaired if necessary.
This is a very large recall, and Chrysler says it is "casting the net wider than necessary to identify those vehicles that require repair." The automaker estimates that "as many as 726,000 may not need repair."
For nine years, Diesel Power magazine has run the Diesel Power Challenge, this year's grindfest being "a week-long torture test that features seven events, nine trucks, 8,000 horsepower, and nearly 15,000 pound-feet of torque." The road to being crowned "the most powerful truck" starts with a dyno run, and then continues through the completion of a CDL-style obstacle course, an eighth-of-a-mile drag race while towing a 10,000-pound trailer, a quarter-mile drag race without a trailer, a fuel economy test in the mountains and finally a sled-pulling test through a 300-foot-long packed-mud pit.

What kind of trucks get into such a fight? Last year's winner, for instance - who upgraded his truck this year to prove he didn't "luck into the win" - drives a 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty with a 6.4-liter Power Stroke V8 upgraded with a custom intake, Elite Diesel triple turbos and a two-stage nitrous system. Another competitor has a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 powered by a 5.9-liter Cummins inline-six, upgraded with Garrett turbos, dual-stage nitrous, a seven-inch exhaust stack and twin fans built into the bed to cool the Sun Coast Omega transmission. The numbers on that truck: 1,255 horsepower, and 2,063 pound-feet of torque at the wheels. Naturally, as the image above might suggest, things don't always end well.
You'll find all five videos covering this years challenge below. A scene in the dyno video sums it all up perfectly: a competitor leaves his nitrous on too long and the crew is treated to some ominous poppings, he leans out the window, throws both hands up and shouts, "Amer'ca!"
So far, whenever we've seen the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT with its 707-horsepower, supercharged Hellcat V8, the muscle car has been smoking its tires. Dodge is finally proving that the SRT can do more than ruin perfectly good sets of rubber, though. In it's latest video, company CEO Tim Kuniskis hands the Hellcat off to the guys from Gas Monkey Garage to show how quickly the automaker's most powerful model can make it down the drag strip.
Of course, the only fitting contender to race against Dodge's latest top muscle car is its grandpa - a Hemi-powered 1971 Challenger, in this case. Before getting to the main event, the hosts also show off some of the SRT's unique features like the blanks in the grille that feed the intercoolers. We'll go ahead and spoil that the Hellcat makes its pass in the 10-second range, and the video admits the tires on the production version would take just a touch longer to cover the quarter-mile. However, you have to watch film to see just how quick it actually goes. Scroll down to see a classic example of American muscle drag racing against its modern legacy.
