Truck is a turn of the century Dodge half ton.
I hope the rifle gets a little beat up before the truck stops moving

BURN!!!

In all honesty, I've abused that truck hard. I'm at 178,000. Last 50k have been majority off-road, was my feed truck when I was working on a big ranch and I'd put 1800 lbs in the bed.

Knock Dodge all you want, but I replaced the dash, added a twin ARB and earlier this month replaced a ground wire that was corroded from driving through high water repeatedly. Son of a bitch just runs, but I've been recently paying attention to gas mileage and it's taken a dive. I haven't done a tune up in 10 years, probably could benefit from plugs, wires, rotor, a higher amp alternator to support the ARB.

ARB Twin draws 50 amps. I have it under hood mounted and routed to a 3 gallon tank.

I don't need it for my lockers as I've had an Eaton Electric in the front and a Detroit in the rear for at least a decade. But if I decide to go full air in the front and rear all I have to do is run the manifold.

I had a dodge of that era with the 5.9 that ran great with almost 200k but it was a rusty pos by then. I think they were built better than newer dodges are.

Meh, I dont see the point, its literally the most prolific and proven firearm out there, except maybe the AK. It's been proven. But whatever tickles your fancy, have fun...

I'd probably keep a piece of tape over the end of the can.

Can isn't part of the deal. ONLY when I'm shooting.

No point in doing it with an AK. The AK would bounce around in the truck for a month and come out looking the same but shooting a little better.
