Hi, New member with questions.

Post by cudabitten » Thu Sep 05, 2019 9:26 pm

Hi, I have been a mopar guy since I bough my first car about 40 years ago, which was a 71 dodge challenger. That's long gone but I restored a 74 cuda about 5 years ago and now I'm looking for a power wagon or power ram.
I like the style of the early ones, 72-80, but I think I'm going to get an 81-89.
What are some things I should be aware of ?
One thing I've learned is that the 75-80 is full time 4 wheel, which I don't think I want.
Also, I don't want one that's already done.

I'll take any advice.

Welcome to the Group! :cheers:

This forum focuses on the 2005 and newer Power Wagons.

Good luck finding a classic ride to restore. What are your plans for it? Weekend driver, show truck, work truck...

Welcome to the forum. :mrgreen: This forum mostly is for 05 and newer Power Wagons.

From 73 to 79 Dodges had the NP203 transfer case. It's a full time 4 wheel drive. They make conversion kit to part time 4 wheel drive.
