More Details & Pictures

78 Southern california ramcharger 100% rust free. Built by Lyons racing. The only thing un touched is the original 318 which runs fine. The truck features fuel rims and Faulkner tires. The paint is pale agave it turns from silver to pale green depending upon the light. I had two of these trucks years ago, and had a list of the modifications I would do givin the finances and time…

We took the drivetrain from a low mileage 1993 1/2 ton ram pickup. In 93 the 1/2 ton had the NV4500 the same 5 speed tyranny behind the Cummins. We used the NP 241 transfer case front and rear differentials

The clutch was replaced. All the breaks, rotors and calipers are new. As well as all the lines. All the ball joints, tie rods, wheel bearings and front end components are new. The shocks and leaf springs and all the u joints are new. We replaced the steering box and did a cross over steering conversion we adjusted for the lift.

This involved cutting the welds on the steering knuckles and tilting them back to compensate for the increased drive shaft angle. Hardly any one does this it’s a pain, but the only way to get the older trucks to track straight and not wander all over the road. Evey bit of body rubber was replaced and we used line-x on the interior floors. All the gauges are new VDO even the speedometer works.

This covers a lot of what was done,but not everything. It has a bikini top and I have the hard top stored. I don’t need to sell it,and the price is firm. Text me so I know you aren’t a telemarketer.
