1988 Dodge Ram W100 — Does not have the acceleration that it should from a V8, handles and drives great though. Constantly makes noises, i have stopped trying to figure out wat they are all from. Body starting to rust, underbody covered in surface rust. Gas mileage not too bad for the age of the truck. Pretty fun to drive although with the 4 wheel leaf spring suspension it does make for a rough ride.

Big Ugly Blue — I have been rebuilding this ugly monster for a few years now. So far I have rebuilt the engine and some of the drive train. The 1969 440 has been built specially for propane and is giving me 500 hp! Very difficult to get stuck, trust me, I've tried! I need to finish the interior, it's mostly all out of a ramcharger, then it's off to the paint booth. I haven't decided on a colour yet, any suggestions?

Pros

She's gotten me from A to B and even in between many times, and she's still kicking.

Cons

She likes her gasoline, that's really the only bad thing.

She's My Baby. — She's a 1988 Dodge Ram 100, 4x4, got a 318 V8 under the hood and, despite the outward appearance, solid as a rock. I'm her third owner. She's got a set of 31" tires on her. The engine has around 180, 650 miles on it.

She's Big And Old And Reminds You Of That Every Time You Fire It Up. By Nolan

Why spend 70,000 on a new Truck when I can build one for a fraction of that? A conversion to a 4x4 Cummins machine is down the pipe. The 'Million Mile' diesel came out in the Dodges a few years later ... Read More

Great Old Work Truck. By Dylan

The power in this truck is on the weaker side, but that's were the fuel mileage comes into play. It gets on average around 20 mpg. Not to bad for an old pickup. Its not the prettiest but it'll get t... Read More
