    because it shares the same body lines as our trucks a dually Chevrolet bet would make that truck look 100% better

    be a good buggy tow rig if ya sold the lame dodge bed, extended the wheelbase some, put a huge/long flatbed on it and some ramps. Throw the buggy up on the flatbed and you're set. :)

    It cant be a 6.2 unless some yahoo put it in there, thats about the same as the trucks we have had at work, anywhere from a 350 in one of ours, to a 366 big block or 427 big block. It would of had a 4 speed manual if it was a deisel but I cant remeber the diesel that went into these trucks, the only one at work we had that WAS a diesel was converted to a 350 when the diesel blew, the rest of the gas trucks were either a 5 speed manual with a auxiarly tranny with 1-2-3-OD or a 5 + 2 manual
    I like the truck with the auxiarly tranny. It had a 427 that ran like a top, it was a twin screw too(two rear axles) you couldnt get that thing stuck anywhere tendering and there were some plenty wet drive ways :D

    It could be something other than a chevy 6.2. I think I have seen them with detroits or cats in them.
