Hey folks, I wandered over from TTORA, ORC, and the Pirate Suzuki boards. Used to be a Dodge man, had an 87 Dak which ended up with 33's - really wasn't much of an offroader though, I was in my poser stage. Anyhow, I'm still a big Mopar fan and may have found my next Dodge - a 1979 Power Wagon. 318, 4 spd, married NP203. Has locking hubs on the front axle, not sure what brand. I guess someone installed a kit or a different frontend on it. Anyhow, I want to restore it somewhat, but it truck has to get me back into those hard to reach hunting spots. This one isn't going to be a trail rig, my Sammy is for that, but I do want something decent offroad, road worthy, and just an all around fun ride. Since my buddy bought this one, we've rebuilt the carb, replaced all the electronic boxes (2 on the firewall and one on the fender if I remember right) new, completely new braking system except the master cylinde, tires, all filters and fuel lines, overlooked maintenance. It runs great, once it's warm. Until then it gets a little fussy. It has 4.10's at least, it's geared low. I plan on doing body work, the bed needs both wheel arches replaced, some work in the bedfloor, and the tailgate. The other night I drove it and the headlights just went out. I waited a moment, tapped the dimmer and they came back. Also, the tach doesn't work. I'm thinking that buying NOS Mopar wiring harnesses from the Dodge Connection or MoparParts.com would set this truck up. Change the harnesses with factory stuff, do some body work and roll. I was hoping for some pointers. Also, the grill is beat up, but he has a 74 that I can have the grill out of, two vertical blinker lenses. Direct swap? He said I can have the 79 for 1000. Anything to look out for or tips for any coming fixes? Thanks much - I know this is a newbie question but it's been a while since I've been around Dodges. The guy I'm buying it from (Maybe) has 5 fullsize Dodges - parts probably won't be a problem. So whatcha think?
