  1. Sold other vehicles so the Ram Raider will stay.
  2. Yeah, was sad to see it go, however, going to focus on keeping the Raider.
  3. Sold this truck today, going to a good home.
  4. They are a pretty awesome little rig. They are re badged Mitsubishi Montero / Pajero / Shogun imported for dodge. Doesn't actually say dodge anywhere on it other than a Raider Ram badge on the fender, and a "Imported by Dodge" emblem on the rear door handle. Extensive racing history with wins and top ten finishes in the early 80's Dakar Rally Race. The Dakar rally race was a 9884km race through the desert and jungles with no rest days. Out of all entry's, only 32% got to the finish line. The first race for the Mitsubishi Montero was a basically stock Montero, 2.6L gas and only safety modifications in 1983. Pics below are of 1983, 1984 and 1985 Dakar races. I used to have every years race on vhs from 1983 thru 1986 but not sure where they are now. The creator of the race died on course of the race in a helicopter crash in the desert mid race. The race went on, but atmosphere had changed.
  5. Gonna be more difficult to spot you in traffic now

    Dodge Raider

    Sadly selling my dodge raider project. Zero rust and great condition. Stored inside The bad it needs an engine. The good is it has a complete parts rig with it. The pic of the raider in the driveway is the good one, Pic of the raider on the towtruck is the parts rig. Asking $6250 for them, and some extras not mentioned to be included. Located in Ardoise, 902-329-3440. THANKS
  7. Yep, I hear ya there, my projects have been ignored due to busy schedule, but things are happening and hopefully will get back on track
  8. Nice!! Good to have steering and suspension stuff tight.
  9. Welcome to the site, nice Heep, there is a wealth of knowledge of the land and trails in here, however it's not openly posted on public to protect the land and land owners, come check out a meet on Thursday evenings, or a club run, and go from there. Sometimes a few club members will post some exploration dates , not an official run, but rather a small group of 2 or 3 rigs go and check some less traveled areas or visit some of the traditional wheeling locations. Usually every weekend there is some kind of activity. See ya out there,....as soon as I get a wheeling rig back together lol.
  10. The last of my steering and suspension pieces came today, except the tie rod, they substituted it with a paper oil filter!? Anyway trying to get that sorted out. Also got some new warn premium hubs too. Almost ready to pull the trigger and start yanking wrenches on this rig.
  11. WooHoo , shiny stuff showed up today
  12. Haha yep, still waiting on the next wave of parts, anything that is replaceable or rebuildable in the suspension is getting it done , that list is just what showed up so far, but not enough to start on yet. Still need a pile of stuff to show up before I can start Lol, I'm kind of curious myself how fast or slow the rebuilding and upgrading of the chassis is going to be
  13. First load of parts showed up, more coming
  14. Just too small for Recovery work, it would just be a toy, And it's still here , iv got a few parts hoarded for it Yep, setting it up to be able to hook into anything, wheels or not, big or small I'll haul them all, putting an old style wrecker boom in the back that way if some leverage is needed or just to pick something up or...? Possibilities are endless. It's going to be built the way iv been dreaming of building an off road Recovery truck.
  15. Will also use this as a off roading rig, be back in the woods again
  16. Most of the parts to rebuild the chassis and suspension are ordered, Still need to look at driveshafts and such, I'm not there yet, but been thinking about them, going to do 1410 series u-jounts in the front and rear driveshafts.
  17. Here are some pictures of the parts iv been accumulating for some time now. It all looks like junk, but it's all pretty solid , and has the right amount of beef. First pic is the frame I'll be using, I have to add a couple crossmembers to it and put the new cab perches on it. The front suspension will be removed and tossed, it's TTB d44 HD and of no use. Next pic is HP d60 front, nothing special, will be adding a leaf to that set of springs along with new bushings, and total rebuild, adding a locker and regearing. Tossing the 4.10:1 aside and installing 3.55:1. Next is the 8.25r16 military tires on steel wheels Picture of the black truck, it will give up it's front clip, hood, fenders , grille etc, Pretty rust free bed, and a super hard to find rare rad support , it's the HD version for the front end I'm using, a 1 Year only piece, and it's rust free And the white cab I'll be using. Power is coming from a Ford 6.6L inline 6 turbo diesel, backed by a Eaton fuller 6 speed and a divorced np205
  18. GOING OFF ROAD! Here is an Update on the towing, and looking at expanding the business. Towing has been going well, thanks everyone for the referrals, much appreciated. Iv had several calls now for off road recoverys, some iv had to turn down due to lack of equipment. Well , not any more. Now for the off road Recovery build. Iv just ordered a s#!t ton of new parts, including a grizzly locker for Dana 60. I sold my go fast adrenaline rush to fund this build to add to my dream. Starting with just a bare frame sitting on dirt and blocks. More to come . .. Stay tuned......
  19. Yep, snow was about 10" and it was a questionable winch fest by ourselves. I had Tracey and the kiddos for support lol
  20. I did it in the winter with the Xterra and open diffs lol
  21. Road cruza RA1100 are good, affordable all terrain tires and come in suv sizes. I had them on our caravan and loved them, we took that van all over dirt roads /mild trails and lived in the country with it. Was awesome. On my trucks I run Road cruza RA3200 which is more of a MT than an all terrain.
  22. Also got a new shop toy to play with, a very used but functional tire machine. Iv always had access to tiremachine, but since iv gone self employed I don't have that perk anymore. So here it is, tried it out on the spare tire for the Nissan, remove and reinstall lol. I'm happy with it, sure beats swapping tires manually lol.
  23. Not much of an update, but iv replaced the driver side door and a couple of little things,
  24. Something I do on bulb sockets on all my vehicles , is plug the socket full of dielectric grease, then stick the bulb into it, iv had to change alot of burnt out bulb sockets and pigtails, but never one iv " treated " to the grease , I think it helps cool the socket and wire contacts and prevents any corrosion too due to trapped moisture.
