    A good plow truck in the rust belt is supposed to be horribly rusty but very trusty. I hope this Dodge never gets exposed to salt because that would be a shame.

    With the factory plow set up you you got a larger radiator and tramsmission cooler. Unstopable in the snow

    That is a remarkable plow truck being almost 40 years old. There is a bunch of rust, though, just waiting to pop through. Just look at the rear fender well and that door bottom. If you drive it in the rain, it’ll come right out.

    Not the first year for declutchable hubs, they were there in the seventies and maybe earlier, my ’74 had them. Those buckets are from early eighties vans, I have the same ones in my ’79 B100. They out of an ’83. Buckets like in the Lil Red were first available in the early seventies on special order.

      I heard that it was possibly the first year WARN hubs got in the game with DODGE? Not sure though

    You do have a point.

    Anyone else would have taken the plow off before attempting sale.

    Power Wagons are pretty tough though and it looks like this one has lead an easy life.

      This is a snow commander a factory snow plow truck and is sold as is. Takin off the plow would be nothing short of a lie.

      Yep…the mileage certificate actually means very little, just as carfax…both are owner written with no true proof for mileage or in the case of carfax being
      accident free… Looking at the condition of the engine components I would be more inclined to say this odometer is on it’s second spin…I could be wrong but unless it belonged to myself or a neighbor I would be leery…

      ‘Little’ surface rust is a gauge of how much frame rust there is.
      little rust = a lot
      No rust = plenty of rust (we just don’t see it)
