Our 12 Year-Old Boy's Dream Chad wanted a truck since he could talk. When he turned 12, his stepdad found him his dream truck. It needed a little work. This 1978 W200 Dodge pickup was left on a reservation in Moab for 20 years in the red sand. It had 56,000 miles and no rust, a 400 c.i.d engine, and a lot of sand. A donor truck supplied the parts needed to convert it to a 4-speed. Chad and Gary (stepfather) have worked on it for years, pulling the engine, rebuilding it, and learning along the way. Chad used ... read more >>
Lucky Adventurer Day We wanted to purchase an older truck that we could eventually restore and enjoy, with the intent of passing it on to kids down the road. We had looked at several trucks, and missed out on several 40’s-70’s trucks. My daughter and I were on the way to the dentist one day, and weren’t real happy about having to take a detour onto a secondary country road (we were running a little bit late). After we turned onto the road, about 1/8th of a mile on the right hand side of the road, we saw this ... read more >>
I had never really thought about buying a truck, even though I had a 1990 Ford Bronco previously. When I saw the styling and design of the 1999 Dodge Ram 1500, I fell for the unique "non-boxy" body styling and the large fold-down center console that could fit a laptop! On top of that, I thought the Deep Amethyst paint color was pretty cool. I ordered the truck new through the dealer's fleet group and could not wait to pick it up. I enjoyed the 48 mile drive home in my new truck. Over the years, it has served ... read more >>
My First Truck I'm 35 years-old. I have always wanted a truck but to be honest, have never wanted a brand new truck off the lot. My brother and I rebuilt a 1979 K5 Blazer 15 years ago, all with the wonders of LMC providing every piece needed. I have always, and still to this day, wanted that Blazer. Well, I finally got the truck I wanted! That old big body truck with the world for space under the hood, carburetor under that old intake cover! I'm so excited. Now granted, my first truck is not a Chevy, not ... read more >>
Prairie Dog Survivor Found in the panhandle of Texas on a prairie dog hunt a year ago. It had been sitting in a rancher's fence row for 16 years. Thanks to LMC and lots of hard work, it is back on the road today. We use it on weekends, tailgating at the river. Someday, it will be my great-grandson's, whose picture is seen sitting on the hood.
I purchased this truck in 1990 when I was 19 years-old. It had around 9K miles on it. Immediately, I put a 4-inch lift on it and 35-inch tires. I ran in several mud bogs and spent weekends on the beach playing in the sand. Later, I used it on the farm hauling hay, sawdust, and lots of firewood. I parked it in '08 for 10 years. My son and I decided to wake him up last year. We stripped him to the frame and started over most everything new. New engine, rebuilt the tranny and transfer case, 5:13 ... read more >>
Road Trip! I got this from a lil old lady (original owner) and proceeded to convert it to a mini RV: electricity, TV, laptop, microwave, bed, etc. It started out pretty rough but after some attention, it got many compliments! Homemade billet grille, custom paint, and custom interior.
The Other Guy's Mopar I bought my truck from Brad the Mopar Dude (great guy). I drove it from Kansas to California trouble-free. The truck is a super sweet ride. I have lowered it and put new rubber and glass in it. Next, is a 360 HP engine from ATK. I also added the bumper from '72-'82. You have to use the same year's brackets. Thank's to LMC for the bumper.
My story began when I first started looking for my first car or truck. I wanted a project that I could build and be proud of, and my dad kept telling me I could buy a nice car or truck cheaper than I could build one. So, I found some projects. Then it seemed like something always went wrong. Then my dad found this 1977 Dodge Adventurer. It was an all-original, one-owner truck and I knew I had to have it. So, I traded off my other projects and I got the truck. ... read more >>
Boo Radley My truck is a 1996 manual 3500 dually that my dad got me to haul my horses when I was 15. I remember seeing that truck drive around Belen, then seeing it on the lot. At the time, it had dual stacks coming out of a custom bed and a pristine paint job. I remember DROOLING over it, 'how cool would that be?' Being a truck driver's daughter, the stacks and the roar of the engine appealed to me a lot. So, we came home a day after my birthday and there it was in our yard. ... read more >>
