Carranzas Trucks 4 brothers that have always liked trucks! Fixing the first gens have been our favorite ones. We all work together on them. It is something that keeps us together. We each have one or two or 5 of them..
My Dad's Workhorse and Project He Never Got To My dad bought this truck when I was 14 years old it was 12 years old then and he always talked of fixing it up but life and kids always came first so he never got to it. We had a lot of memories in that old truck hauling fire wood and well water. My dad was all about us kids and always put his wants and needs last just as I do for my kids now. Dad lost his battle with sickness two years ago and I wanted to ... read more >>
Dodge Dream Truck When I was 18 I started working at out local Dodge dealership as a mechanic. That next year 1994 the 2nd Gen Dodge came out. I remember thinking it was the sharpest truck I’d ever seen. I always wanted one but it was never practical. Well now the kids are grown and I finally did it. I bought a 96 Cummins that will be my daily driver project truck. She needs a little TLC but overall is a solid truck. Can’t wait to get her back in shape.
First Truck I was not a truck person. Until the day I saw this truck for sale on Facebook. Then everything changed. It is not a very desirable or special truck but it is rare. It is a 1972 Dodge Power Wagon W200 extended cab long bed. It is a big truck... It was exactly a year ago. I bought the truck just by looking at the pictures the seller had sent me. Put the money in my pocket, borrowed my buddy's truck, thinking I would tow that back with a U-Haul dolly. What a mistake!! It would not ... read more >>

Rough Start I bought my 2001 ram 2500 from Florida sight unseen. Other than photos and videos and a promise the truck was in excellent shape. When it arrived in NJ it was far from excellent but it was too late because I love it. . Thanks to LMC and a bunch of money it’s looking and running pretty good these days
Piecing It Together Around January 2018 I bought a dodge ram D100, with a 5 speed manual for 1800 dollars. I was looking for a vehicle that I would be able to maintain fairly easy with parts that were easy to source, MOPAR fit the description. I was able to daily it for about 2 months until early March when a criminal that had several warrants out for his arrest crashed a stolen dodge journey into my truck parked on the street in the middle of the night. I heard it and thought a someones tire blew because it ... read more >>
Maggie I needed a truck real bad and being a disabled veteran, I couldn't afford too much. A neighbor of mine had this 97 dodge ram sitting in his yard, been there for 3 years not running. He said if you can get it to run, its yours!! Being a mechanic for 44 years, 7 of those at a local Dodge dealer, I said Ok. She needs lots of work, but she now runs great.
