1982 Dodge crew CTD 5spd

Another crew in progress, hopefully with enough time (and money) it will be as nice as some of these ones on here.

Here's getting it home last summer, 2800km round trip from Kamloops, B.C:

Possibly, I've owned it for about 8 months now. There is at least one more identical to this one, both were ex-Alberta forestry trucks.

Hey Ashley.....................looking good. Can hardly wait for the finished product. We'll have to meet halfway for coffee or something!!!

Is that Hemi orange?

With the 4 inch lift, what are planning for tires and wheels?

They seem to weather quite well out there, mine is very solid.

Hey Ron, coffee half way sounds good and thanks for the compliment means a lot coming from a guy that built one of the nicest ones out there.

Its Chrysler orange which is very close to C5 ford/arctic cat orange which will be part of the exterior.

Going with 35x12.5x17 tires mounted on ATX artillery chrome wheels. Tires will either be kumho venture Mt's or Toyo open country Mt's

Used a right angle drill to attach the clutch bracket, worked perfectly.

The old gas tank

New tank installed, had to use heat to re-mold the top of the tank to avoid conflicting with the cab. Also dropped the tank 1/2" to help clearance. Redrilled mount holes on the front bracket and molded a plastic shim for the back bracket to drop it.

Stripped down the rad support while waiting for help to hang the doors today, did get the LE doors hung but no pictures yet. Tried to install front driveshaft but the 5spd shaft I bought turned out to be for a auto. Tried to install new rear carrier bearing but had the wrong size, always something!
