with the length of the van, you could get away with a Titan molded tank (if they make one), they are over 50 gallons each and you may be able to get one on each side tucked up in the frame some, so you dont have those other tanks hanging down.

Maybe something a bit shorter and cleaner like the storage compartments on a Class A motorhome? Or a support structure like this:



with hinged horizontal and/or vertical panels to cover tanks, generators, etc.

3208 runs FOREVER but is 100% gutless.....After driving a C15 KOH it's hard to get into anything C12 or smaller in a medium duty or heavy duty truck. The 5+2 might make it somewhat better but it's tough to say. 3408 would be of major interest....

They didn't put cummins' in dodges until '89 and if someone had swapped it that usually is a major selling point and would most likely have been mentioned.

Why the heck did dodge do that. They had 440's. When I was looking for cc dually's I saw a metric ton of fords and chevy's with big blocks. Not one dodge with a big block. They all had 360's and some even had 318's.

Last year of the 440 in a truck was 78 but the motorhomes continued past then. Why they chose that year is beyond me since everyone else made them for a lot longer.

and that was when i knew i would have an affinity for manufactured homes and scrap yards.

i was thinking that with a van full of my wife/children/dogs, id not like side hung fuel tanks. both of my car wrecks were high speed Tbones, from people running lights/signs.

so i thought weld a C channel sructure down from the frame, hang your side boxes outboard for easy storage access, convenient step/running board look, and some streamlined wind-skirt action. mount the fuel tanks inboard of the toolboxes and make one diesel, the other one veggie. put the filler neck for the veggie tank inside the sidebox so DOT cop never notices/dips your untaxed fuel tank.

That's fantastic! The way they designed that interior makes it look pretty roomy.

Even though it's in really nice shape, it's still a 12 year old truck with 200k on it.
