1985 Dodge W250 with 318, 4 speed stick.



Aside from the cab floor being stove up from rust it's pretty solid.





If I kick the high beam I think my foot will fall through the floor.



Fuses? We don't need no stinkin fuses! Also the PO decided a marine battery was the best way to get more terminals to wire her up all mint.



Can't decide if this pump bracket is a legitimate Fisher(tm) part. There's also an odd piece of allthread that goes off to somewhere on the intake manifold. It's nice that it's a 100% hydraulic system so the lights don't dim when I crank the plow all around.



Michelin tire with 2000 date code and no cracks at all!




If this thing rocks in its first winter I see this bumper getting some LED light bars!



Measure once, drill twice:

Fix that truck up.There is a big demand for that 70s/80s generation Dodge.Way tougher trucks than the later Rams that came along (94-up).Me personally,I would have no issue at all with obtaining a D150 shortbed for daily use....

Leaf springs the whole way 'round! That's some conestoga wagon tech.

Ha! Good one!
Is it good enough if I write "PASD ENSPEKSHUN" on an index card in green crayon?

How's the clutch in it?. I had an old willy's pick up and my knee was killing me after my first plow job with it. I guess the extra holes for the mirrors was just because the new mirror holes didn't match up with the old holes.,,

Clutch is light and works like an on/ off switch. Figuring with limited traction and 4-lo that's not all that bad.

-5 points for real sheet metal on the floorboards and not having stolen road signs
-10 points for tires w/ tread
-15 points for having an actual seat and not a milk crate
+5 points for ratchet strap battery holder but I would like to see bailing wire instead


Life's little problems can be solved with a shovel and silence.

Back in the 80s, this company was still taking baby steps and it ALMOST looks like something they would've had in their catalog.
