Well I will change out that big rear bumper for a lighter one.



Nice score! Don't you need that bumper for ballast?
Are those rims aftermarket?

nice score! happy birthday stumps!

If you're gonna race it, more weight behind the rear axle is better than less, find places up front to cut weight!

I shaved right at 200 pounds of the front off my truck by wieghing what came off and what went back on.

swaperd out power steer to manual steer,power brake to manual brake,ditched the A/C-heater core,ditched the 35 gallon saddle tank,ditch the cast iron intake/WP housing/WP on the 440 engine.

I could drop a few more pounds by removeing the inner fenders, lighten the core support and full interier bench seat,gut the doors and bed.

I got it down to 3840 with me in it so far.

Happy Birthday Richard.


Nice truck. I have a spare cattle guard in the shed if you need it. (just in case one of those guard rails at the track jumps out in front of you again)

Looks like my twin! This one is a '82 Ram, but was a slant six 4speed, plain jane.

I see that one had AC!

Actually that metallic brown is a pretty sharp color! Sable brown I think?

When I can afford it I'm going to paint it back the original color. This one even has the rams head still on the hood.

Hows the new truck coming along? Are you parting your old one?

New truck is up and running great. Only things left to do is swap rearends and install the carpet get the final exhaust work finished. Another week and it will be race and road ready7. I used all the running gear and tires etc. on the new body. I pretty much took anything good off the old truck before I sent it to the crusher.
