Fairly new to the forums here. Just starting to get into the 4x4 scene. Have a 1993 Dodge w150. Looking forward to lots of information.

Yep. I bought it. Needs some work still, but I'm slowly getting it done. I have to put a new steering gear, repair the front cad system, put ujoints in the front driveshaft, and get overdrive to work. I recently replaced the VSS but still no speedo/OD so I'm assuming it's an electrical problem.

welcome, not too far from ya. I have experience in those old dodges if you need a hand just let me know. As far as the cad thing i would lock it to engaged position. I did it and it works well. Not too much of a fuel mileage difference if that matters to ya. Either way welcome

Okay, so what's the easiest way to permanently lock the front axle? I'm putting manual hubs on it soon. I have to try and get it to shift into OD, too. I replaced the VSS but the speedo still doesn't work so I guess I'm just assuming it's electrical since the trans shifts into all other gears flawlessly. thanks for the info guys.

I happen to say y'all a lot since I was born and raised in Tennessee. Sorry for the long hiatus, I've been insanely busy with school and working on my truck. How is everyone doing?
