She's Big And Old And Reminds You Of That Every Time You Fire It Up. — 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 so It's a bolt in deal. Big block power and small block mileage.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: LOTS of interior and Cargo space.
Old school style
Solid build
Elegant in it's simplicity

Cons: 2x4, bad news on winter roads
360 gasser, power and mileage nothing to write home about.
I get a Christmas card from the Saudi government every year.

Great Old Work Truck. — 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 the job done. Looking to model it after the red dodge in the television show Smallville.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Good work truck. She's old but runs like new.

Cons: I wish it had more power. It seems lacking.

It Gets Me Places — i only got the 225, but even that is enough to have some fun with it. secretly tho i hope the engine will blow so i can swap it with a 318 haha. unfortunately however, these 225s just dont die. you cant kill them. its basically the toughest engine known to man.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: made in america

Cons: its a dodge

Excellent Truck. — this was a great starter vehicle! the 318 was strong and teh POSI rear end was very nice! the truck had been kept good care of since it was origanally owned by the city of medicine hat. other then the gas it was a beautiful truck and i really wish i hadnt sold it long ago...*sigh* but i guess if i hadnt i wouldnt have been shown the wonders of imported cars :P the truck was very origanal tho being a base model truck but no big problems with the interior. everything workd the way it shouldve!

Pros: good work truck. very reliable!

Cons: terrible gas milage...
