    Recently I picked up an decrepid old 93 W250. This poor truck was a mess. The only pannel on the truck without any dammage was the hood. Origianally I picked up the truck for parts, but after some inspection I decied to put some time and work into it. Even after all the abuse the old Cummins will start with the tap of a key. The truck mecanically was good other than the broken frame!!!

    Will be getting the truck from the body shop in a few days. My friend has replaced and staightened everything. At first I only wanted a kick and fill. For some reason he has decided to treat the truck like its going into a show and shine. Guess it pays to get your truck fixed during the slow season. In fact instead of taping the windows he decided to remove them!!! (doesn't like tape lines on rubber):eek:

    Here is a short list:
    • cut and remove roof replace with rust free one
    • two front fenders
    • new drivers door
    • new rockers both sides
    • new cab corners

    Will post some before pictures below. After to come mid week.I

    If you have an interesting story please share. :)

    Sorry, thought I loaded the pictures last night. In fact the pictures show the truck to be better than it was. They dont show how mangled the box was or the million dents up and down the body.

    Did I mention it is going to be white.

    I wish mine was as solid I would have one Club and one Reg cab, I'm using parts off the Club for the regular cab. Watch out Daff once you add ballast and some good tires you will quickly find nothing will stop it.

    Just got back from seeing the truck. The paint was still fresh and the truck looked almost new. Just add the windows and the rest of the interior. Truck will be finished on Wed. Pictures to follow. Can't wait to take the new 1993 truck for a ride. Thinking on a mild lift larger tires and turning up the injector pump and of course a pair of 4" stacks.

    Great truck. I look forward to seeing the after pics. I do have do voice my opinion though and say if you are gonna do stacks, 4" is pretty wimpy. 5" minimum, but 6 inch would be awesome! Not my truck though so...........

    Man makes me want to revive my old melting 93 Club, but you had something to work with, mine is truely rotten to the core, it's a shame really. On a good note you will love how awesome the long wheel base beast will push, get some wings for that plow, with a sander or ballast that thing will move a mountain of snow. Looks great!

    To be honest, if was going to do it again I be looking for a truck from the south. Sure the old truck looked decent but inderneath laid a monster can of worms.

    Seems to drive decent. Still needs tires and alignment. The OD is not working (no cuisecontrol) and there is a seal gone in the air pump. As of now the oil leak is benificial for the aspect of rust but it is worse at higher rpm.

    Have the salter on the W350 at the shop. Will move it to this truck when I feel it is dependable. All I know is the engine will start EZ but the rest of the drive line has been sitting way too long. Time and miles will tell.

    Also at the shop sits the exact plow but a 8.5'. Will have wings on both in time.

    Those older Dodge Rams are tanks! I had a similar model and the thing was unstoppable. Take care of it and it will treat you well for a very long time!!

    How many miles are on the old truck? You would never tell it was the same from start to finish
