The orange truck is a 1986 W150. I found it on a Facebook Dodge truck trader page. It was being sold as a nearly perfectly restored truck, with a small ignition problem needing to be addressed. Let’s just say that was as far from the truth as possible. The truck was a complete mess, with so many mechanical problems it wasn’t even funny. Sadly, it was an internet sale that was paid in full. Live and learn. After getting it home from Lansing, KS, I was able to get the correct wheels and tires back on it. That’s when ... read more >>

I got my 1975 Dodge D100 about 3 years ago. It was an old Forestry Service vehicle, so it probably had all its scheduled maintenance. The engine is a strong running 318 with the original 2bbl. It has a 727 automatic transmission. It’s pretty much a stock truck. When I got it from a tow yard in the Bay Area of California, it had no keys and was hot-wired due to it being abandoned. They put together the lien sale paperwork on it and I was able to drive it home, though it had some wiring gremlins. The amp ... read more >>

I’m a full time firefighter who does residential and commercial construction on the side. A truck is a must have for hauling materials and tools. As far as trucks go, I’ve owned one of almost all the manufacturers over the years except Toyota, but I did have an old Land Cruiser. This Dodge is my second and I have no complaints. Aside from work this truck is a great family hauler with plenty of room for everyone inside and all our gear for the great outdoors. I also have a little cycling problem, and with some strategic placement I’ve ... read more >>

My 1984 Dodge Ram Marksman 1000 is a very special vehicle. We call her Old Blue and she has been with me since birth. She was my father's truck and it was bought the year I was born, 1987. I'm now the proud third owner. The truck served as my dad's company pickup hauling tools, dirt, rocks and logs and then retired to our barn for almost 10 years. Deep down I always wanted her as my own and my sweet father noticed. Then one year he surprised me with her as a Christmas present! I was so overjoyed! ... read more >>

I have loved Mopar since I learned to work on cars. I was always too broke to fix my own so I learned how to wrench. My first rebuild was a 1985 Daytona Turbo Z. There’s nothing like jumping in the deep end feet first! From there I have owned 3 Dodge Shadows, a Daytona IROC, the Durango, and I just bought a Jeep. The Durango has been my daily driver since 2006 when I became the second owner at 65,000 miles. It now has 198,000 on it and is still driven daily. I have kept up the maintenance ... read more >>

Bought it in Tampa, FL, in March 1973. Took it to Fairbanks, AL, for three years where we drove in -60 degree temps. Brought my daughter home from the hospital in this truck. Went to Texas for nine years and then to northern Maine where we drove in extremely deep snow. I retired from the USAF in 1988 and returned to Texas where she brought home my daughter's baby from the hospital in 1998. There's no power anything on my truck. It has "arm-strong" steering, brakes with vacuum assist, 4 speed with Granny gear. Everything is original except the ... read more >>

My current truck is a 1993 Dodge Ram W250. I've been into the square body Dodge trucks ever since I was a kid. My dad had an '81 D100 that he bought in the early 80s. In '88 he traded it in on a very nice two-tone blue '85 D100. This truck would come to be known as "Old Blue." It has over 300,000 miles on it and we're still running it! My journey with these trucks started in 1995. I was a junior in high school when I bought my first Ramcharger, a 1986 black and silver two-tone. ... read more >>

1982 Dodge W350 – Ethan Bystrom

This Green Machine is a 1982 Dodge W350. I'm an 18 year old kid that spent the majority of his free time restoring it throughout high school. The truck was originally purchased new by my grandfather in 1982 for the purpose of pulling fertilizer spreaders and stock trailers. It has remained in the family and I was excited to get my hands on it. It was in poor shape after several times around the odometer (3-4 times, not sure exactly) and was plagued by hacked fixes on the body and copious amounts of cancer. I started work on the ... read more >>

This truck and I have shared some amazing journeys since I bought it new in 1982; as it turns out, it’s the sentimental journey that has been my favorite. I was a single firefighter in Arizona when I picked her out of the lot. We spent a lot of time in the four-wheel drive with my Golden Retriever, Rusty. There were many dove and quail hunts. I can still see Rusty in the pickup bed, soaking up the sun and enjoying the wind in his face. He was just a pup back then. Eighteen months later, I drove her ... read more >>

This is my 2003 Dodge Ram SLT 4.7 V8. I recently inherited this truck after my father Jeff’s untimely death on September 21, 2015. A little backstory on my dad and this truck. This was my dad’s first truck that he bought a few years ago. It was his daily driver, his pride and his joy. I swear that he loved this truck more than his kids most days (he has five daughters, so let’s just say the truck was like one of his kids). Just before his death, he began to work on the truck to bring it ... read more >>

This all original paint 1983 Dodge Ramcharger was headed to the scrap yard when I saw it on a rollback. I stopped and asked where it was headed, and he said he was junking it because the transmission was out of it. I bought it for a scrap price, took it home and started disassembling it. I put in a Dana 60 front and rear big block motor transmission and transfer case. I replaced every bolt and part on this truck in the drive line with help from LMC. I made it look pretty. It was quite a journey. ... read more >>

This is the story of my Ramcharger. I first purchased it in in 1996, lifted it, painted it and really enjoyed it. As fate would have it in 2004 my family outgrew it and I had to, with sadness, sell it. Fast forward 10 years and my son became old enough to drive. I was going to give him my current vehicle and look for something for myself. Surfed online, went to car lots but nada... Then one day I was surfing Craigslist and low and behold I find my Ramcharger for sale upstate. It was in a sad ... read more >>
