Picked up some rims for the Ramcharger...$75 for the set. Couldn't pass em up....  I will soon get a chance to work on it..  I did strip the old tub, going to cut it into short iron & turn it into a trailer load of scrap.  :headbang:   Next is make the body lift & get the tub bolted down, then I can start on the wiring issue. :tard:

so do you have plans to make a working A/C in the new truck?

I would like to someday not be the only one that gets made fun of for having A/C  :laughing7:

Well, I just ordered a 3" body lift & new body bushing kit for the old Ramcharger.  I have come close to making a body lift using 3" pipe collars, but then since it will eventually be on the highway I figured better be safer & do it right...  Should be delivered February so within the first few weeks of the month I hope to have time to make it happen.  Seems like every time I get a day off & want to work on the truck it rains or its butt cold...    I still have so much to do, its almost depressing..  When I lift the tailgate, It looks like a complete truck piled up back there..LOL

As of today I have received the body lift I ordered, but the body bushings just shipped today... maybe by Monday I will have what I need to start puting this beast back together..   I did go & cut some sheet metal to patch the small rust hole in the driver floor... Cleaned out the other pieces from the back & organized it some... Found the roof hatch leaks so I pulled out the old rubber floor & all the wet insulation stuff so maybe it will start to dry out... Seems like every Ramcharger I have ever owned leaked at the rear hatch. but that's another project... Gotta get this critter going....
