Well with the injectors and such I got sick of constantly cleaning my rear wheel off. So I bought some 4" piping and moved the tailpipe behind the wheel. I like it a lot more. Plus I installed my light bar and KC daylighters. Well guys its finally getting where I want it

Cows it was originally for two reasons. First convenience, it was easy and cheaper at the time. Second I thought the sound would be louder (I like loud). For some reason it sounds louder to me now out the back than out the side. But I am sick of cleaning my wheel every time I take it to Morgantown. With all the goodies added it is a blast to drive!

Hey freight train,

Just wanted to say what a great build! Just went over your thread and I love your RC. And I was wondering if you had any issues on getting it titled as a diesel being that the RC is newer than the engine that went into it? I have an 85 ramcharger that I'm planning out a cummins swap for, so the year issue won't really apply to my swap. But I'm just curious, because from the info I've gathered it seems that to do a diesel swap, in California at least, the Diesel engine base to be newer than the vehicle it goes into. I'm just trying to get whatever issues there may be in titling figured out before I purchase a donor truck.

Thanks, and again great build!

Honestly I cant answer that for California. I can tell you that in WV I had no issues. We pay taxes every year based on the vehicles book value. When I apply to title a vehicle I need to go to my local DMV with last years tax receipts (even though I didn't own it the previous year) the vehicles title, and a copy of the vehicles newly acquired insurance card. Without one or the other it cant be titled and then registered. To renew my registration every year (when they are due) I need the insurance card and tax receipts.
To answer your question. No. In WV what engine is in a vehicle is not important. The DMV does not even see the vehicle nor does it state on the title what it came with. Only the vehicle class (or weight) and that the state gets your money every year. Good luck on your swap

I finally finished reading your entire thread. Great work with the CTD swap. I did something similar. Except, I swapped a 4bt into my 77 RC poptop. I love it.

I say it all the time. I wish now I would have been more patient and found a first generation RC. Not being a body guy finding anything that old without rust or beat to hell and back in my area is darn near impossible. My first car was a 79 RC with a 360 I bought from my uncle. He purchased it brand new. Neither him nor I ever had the top off of it. I drove it for about 5yrs. Now when I am loaded up in the RC headed to a WVU game with the wife and friends I think how cool it would be to be heading down the road (very early in the season mind you) with the top off. I will never understand why Dodge lost the removable top and the better tailgate/small hatch setup. But who knows, I just had my son. Maybe in about 15yrs he will be begging to build a Cummins first gen RC

When I was a teenager, my next door neighbor bought a brand new 78 RC, pulled the top, and I was always drooling over it. I have wanted one since. Just took me a few years to find one in decent shape.
Yep. About the only places you'll find an old poptop RC that isn't rusted to hell is in the southwest or in an old guy's garage. It took me 4 years to find mine and I was happy to hear that it spent most of it's life in Phoenix.
I pulled the hard top in 07 and have yet to re-install it. It came with a Bestop soft top that I use for Winter cover. I normally pull the soft top in April and keep it off until October. I keep in the garage when topless and have a new bikini top ready to snap down if it rains.
After looking up the VIN, I discovered it was originally a BB 440 truck. When I found it, it had a tired 360. The original plan was to find and install another 440 and matching BB 727. That is, until I came across a Jeep Wrangler with a 4bt. After that, I was hooked and started looking for engine, transmission, transfer case, 1 ton axles with lockers, and a ton of misc parts. It took 4 years to accumulate all the needed parts. I finally did the swap last Summer and have been very happy with the results. I can't get enough drive time with it. If it's a nice day, I'm out and about topless. Love it.

Okay with a 2yr old, keeping up my dads fleet, and working a lot free time for my own projects are going at a snails pace. I did get my RC cleaned up and changed a few things. Over the Winter I quickly learned that bias ply Super Swampers will rock your teeth out until they warm up. So I found a really vintage looking set of turbine wheels and a set of 35x12.5 16.5's Hoosiers. It really rides nice now. With Summer approaching I will probably throw the TL's back on Well what say you?

Man, your RC is SWEET!!! When i was a kid my parents had a mid 80s RC. I loved that truck. Was hoping to buy it from them when I was old enough but they traded it in on something else before I could scrape up the cash. Have wanted to get one ever since.
Looks great Frieght Train. Oh, your dually is bad a$$ too!

Thanks Kerry, My first car was a 79' RC. When my dad bought his first 1st gen in 92' I got hooked on the 6cyl rattlers. I always wanted to build a Cummins RC.
