Its an old Dodge, back when they were good lol.

Bought a rolling tool box today. Cheaper than a crossover and i can roll it to a jobsite. Even better, it was half the price. Ill have to get another to split metalwork and carpentry.

8-10? Really? Well thats kinda depressing. lol.

The truck we are getting from my brother is a 70s "m880" 4x4 and thats about the same it gets.
Ide love to get one of these trucks, but I would need to do what I can to try to get better gas millage lol.

Ide like to take the full time 4x4 transfer case out, Id like to think a different t case would help... Then Id Ike to do some modifications to the engine, not sure what all yet though.
Ide be happy if I could get 15mpg... 18 or so would be great.

love these body styles also love the 2nd gens, i hoping to buy a dodge poweram from my friend chris, it's got the 360 4x4 automatic with a selective t case, he has an extra rebuild 360 to go with it, he was asking a couple hundred, it was fairly straight, i think he said $800?

would prefer a manual, but haven't seen too many of them, 2wd woulda been nice also Razz

Havent updated this in a while.

Did an oil change 700 miles ago, running good so far.

The other week when I was driving to work I noticed my dash was brighter than normal. So somehow, magically, they started working again. Saves me the trouble of wiring in all the damn LED strips.

Before I did my oil change I got my cab lights wired. I just spliced them off my trumpet horn (behind the fuse), to a toggle switch and up.

Trumpet horns are wired. I wanted to have them so they worked off the steering wheel through an ON-OFF-ON switch, but I didnt realize the steering wheel was a ground not a positive. So to save me some headache, I just ran a lead off the battery, to a horn switch (leftover from my tractor rewiring, where i opted for a momentary toggle), then to the compressor.

My passenger mirror is driving me crazy since it doesnt match the drivers side. Might get a new one.

Planning a new fuel filter and new spark plugs this weekend. Hopefully this resolves my occational starting issues and will maybe boost my fuel economy a bit.

Radiator hose came undone today on the drive to work. Lost only about half a gallon of fluid. Got to sit in my truck in mid 20s weather for 15 minutes until my boss and good friend came to rescue me with some coolant.

Thats all I got so far.

First snow we got (beginning of December) I slid off of the road. Clipped a roadsign and lost my passenger mirror and broke the mounts on the taillight. Since replaced the mirror and just used a washer on the screw to hold the taillight on.
