Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But by 1993, their weren't many people beholding Dodge trucks. Dodge had only 8% of the full-size truck market, and the only reason they still had that much was because of the Cummins diesel.

Polky1 Let's see it!!!!
I've got a 83 318 4spd od 83/4 rearend lowered 3" front 1" rear. Maybe someday a 440 swap.
IMO Original 440 trucks are just cooler( if that's a word)

mine is of course not an original 440 but it sure was a great addition to the truck the funny thing is i only did the swap because the motor came with the 727 trans i was tired of shifting gears then i did the manual valve body so im shiftin gears anyway but i got the motor trans for some trade work it cost me about 65 bucks seems like a fair trade i'll have some pics next week
