I vote to part it out, since the auto trannys in older Dodges like that suck balls. (obviously)

Im between the 1st two choices.. Could prob build the trans since you've done it before and know it... then make some profit from selling it.. OR part it out and keep the stuff you'll need..

I choose "part it out" because I need things :tonka:
Plus, those Ram parts go for high dollar from what I've seen

That has never stopped me. :tonka: The truck doesn't have a soul, and doesn't care whether it's parted out or not. Weigh your options, what you want out of the truck (quick-turn cash, parts, etc.), and decide from there. There is no one right answer.

no i knwo that it doesnt have a soul. but the thing im thinking of is the dodges are hard to come by, and it would be a good truck if the tranny was in it. im not sure on what ill do yet. if ya need parts let me know i may spare it. um if i were to sell it it would me a min of 2 grand, for the money ill have to put in to it.
