    Hi all. I recently bought a 1977 Plymouth Trailduster. I am in the process of rebuilding the engine. I am putting in a better cam, endlebrock intake and carb, headers, new pistons(.030 over stock), and some rebuilt heads. I put in a 3/4 ton GM 14 bolt full floater rearend, which now i have to get my driveshaft shortened by 1.25 inches. I also gutted the inside and spread bedliner in the whole tub and cab.

    My plans are to finish the engine, put a 4" lift and some 36x14.5x16.5(or close) rims and tires. I am wondering if anybody else out there has a similar vehicle they are working on? Id like to get some ideas. I would like to put a 3/4 frontend, and am wondering what would be best for those size of tires? I dont mind cutting the fenders, even if i had a brand new truck. :>

    The vehicle has everything i want: 4x4, AC, and removable top. :D

    Sounds like a great older truck.
    Have you checked out Ramchargercentral.com?
    There is lots of Mopar info there. I go there sometimes after I get finished reading all the posts here.
    Just wanted to give you a heads up,

    I've got a 79 Ramcharger (Same Truck, Different Name) that I use for plowing, and I am thinking of buying a Trailduster 2wd this summer as a summer vehicle (Removable Top!!). [:)] I doubt that you'll need to cut your fenders, especially if you're putting in a lift kit. I've got 32" tires on my truck with no lift kit..and there is plenty of room left over.
