    Dodge Ramcharger.

    Indeed, the front bumper will be changed out , the 33" tires sure fill the wheel wells, might just build up the spring packs for now, also the running boards will be removed too. Going to try and keep it not lifted,

    Dodge Ramcharger.

    Figured I'd start a build thread for this, its not home yet, but its paid for. Its a 1984 Ramcharger . 318cid, 727 torqueflight transmission, np208, d44 front diff, Chrysler corp 9.25 rear diff. Its all factory at the moment, except for the tires, it is wearing 33" federal courgia mt, not lifted, The plans are to clean it up a bit, some minor sheet metal repair, install a winch from the ford and wheel it, I'm not going to be as aggressive as when I wheel the ford, but will wheel it the same as I did the xterra. I really like the ramcharger , and my family does too , much more comfortable than the ford. Mods list include installing a 9" Ford rear axle and a spool. Also might revamp the rear bumper and tow points a bit. But thats all the major plans

    The Ford

    Retiring the ford from wheeling, and driving, Will be now a yard/Plow truck. I have a replacement truck, I'm going to wheel a bit more conservatively, hoping to refrain from body damage as much as possible. Family is getting bigger, as in growing physically bigger, not as in adding family members, and the new rig should fit comfortably. And Chuck Norris Drives one. Iv picked up a Ramcharger. Here are some pics.

    New pickups

    XLT Ford trucks we have a fleet of them with the 5.0 engine and 10-speed Transmissions, they are all having issues with oil consumption all five of them 2017 and 2018 models one of them got a complete short block one of them got a pair of heads and the other two haven't been diagnosed yet and one is still in the oil consumption monitoring stage so that's five trucks all with an oil consumption issue the one that got the short block was using a leader a day with City driving, also the 10-speed transmission sucks it's always hunting never in a gear with up shifts and downshifts Skip shifts it just never seems to be in a gear it's always changing gears, I don't think any of them are over 20,000 or 30,000 clicks yet

    So, moving things around the stable, said good bye to my Black TransAm, and made room for this, should be fun, when the weather clears I'll have it at coffee, There is a lot of meaning behind my new Truck and this New to me car. 2019 is shaping up, the last 2 years have been a wild rollercoaster of financial stress, home problems, and some uncontrolled life changes, but now things are slowly taking shape, seeing clear direction and am getting it all together now. I'm now engaged, To my kiddos Mother, Mrs , Powerram, will be moving from the west and we and our kiddos will all be together again, Iv had my trans am for 13 or 14 years, lot of memories, but its time for fresh start, new memories and good times to be had. So introducing the little fox, a 1986 Capri RS, it has a stroked 351w, few goodies, its almost together , hopefully be together and ready to rock when the weather clears. I got it from a good Friend of mine, he put his heart into building this car, but found we both needed a change. So with a few tweaks, couple finishing touches it should be ready to run soon, Mrs Powerram is pretty excited too, there a lot of background info of what this car is going to mean for our family and what it will do for us. Being a car and off road loving family.

    Thanks, I like it Yep, the manual trans the main reason I purchased it, I have the trailer too, just had nothing to haul it lol Leave it as is and just drive it, I got a lot of junk to haul for salvage, and also a lot of reno junk. Always had a big diesel truck , but the last few years were a bit different, but slowly getting stuff back on track.

  12. Was a good run, I sustained some carnage, backed into little tree and broke a taillight, had a rad fan broken wire right at the start, rolled the tires off the beads a couple of times, tore the fuel lines off under the frame, broke the transfer case, now on the way home there is a slight engine drivability issue.

    The Ford

    Yep , would have been bad, that was the only steering piece transfered over during the swap, every thing else was replaced new, so now it all is 100% new for steering. I knew better too, but also have been keeping a close eye on it. The suspension is pretty well worn out on the rear too, rear spring sag , also the main leafs are starting to take the " s " shape. And the rear shocks are done. So the next couple if weeks , planning to grab the rear leaf packs out for f the superduty, and install on the red ford, should level it out again, the rear springs in the ford are the ones it came with new, in 1986 haha.
  14. Getting excited for wheeling , woo hoo, looking forward to checking out this trail!! Can't wait

    The Ford

    Did some repairs, had a front wheelbearing failing, parts warranty covered that, also caught a bad steering adjustment coupler/sleeve. Rusted too thin and was one pothole away from disaster. So installed new tierod, new tie rod end, and a new coupler/sleeve
