An absolute beast!!
Sediment built up in the fuel tank, surged through the fuel filter, and seized up the fuel pump.
The drag-link became loose and wore out the steering components.
Wore out the wheel bearings, which I had to special order.
These trucks in 1975-79 came with a full-time built Dana 44, which goes through bearings like a b*****d, and the 1975 does not have any grease nipples, therefore making it a bad idea to drive it through water and mud. I wouldn't recommend lifting these or running nubby tires, because it will wear out the ball joints faster than you'll burn a tank of gas.
This truck is an absolute tank and has never stopped surprising me. Now over 33 years old, it still out performs any new truck! I have been places in this thing that most people couldn't hike to! Mountain tops beware, the Dodge is coming!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
