I like Dodge Cummins powered trucks. I really like the older noisy clattering Cummins. The new quiet diesels just don't sound right. :(

How big is the fuel tank?
As long as your at it put in a real big one for that TEOTWAWKI?

Holy crapskis! Nice.
My last Dodge truck was a 1962 D200 crew cab.
The Blue Beast.
I've got to figure out how to get pics up.

Looks good Cindy. I have a couple questions. Looks like from the pics the rear is spooled and the front has the Ox???? We use air lockers a lot in rocks but I would be concerned the air line would get pulled out plowing thru mud??? I pulled mine loose a couple times even in rocks back in the day when I ran an ARB up front. Also give a report on the Transfer case when you get it going. I run an Atlas and they have served me well over the years and they have the best customer support of all but that Ox is a good looking case. No one in our group has tried it though?????

Damn. I used to carry water, oil, brake fluid, and a water pump. Had a slightly bent crank, wore the pump out about every 10k. Never hurt anything else and I could swap it out in about 20 mins. without pulling the radiator. At the expense of a few skinned knuckles.

Won't ever forget the the first ooh ficial off-road trip I went on. Throwed lunch and a few tools in and drove the jeep to Poteau OK and back. Now the Jeep is loaded down with tools that includes a CO2 bottle for airing up tires and running air tools, loaded on a trailer behind a 1 ton dually Dodge that in most cases you couldn't fit another wrench in the back and still don't always have what I or someone else may need. Have not had to start carrying a spare water pump yet though.
