Well I finally decided to start my CarDomain blog after many months of procrastination. I first aquired my truck when I was 16, and had just finished grade 1... Show more1. From what I know, the ram was used by a family friend to haul their 5th wheeler. I was also used as a hunting truck. Then it was passed down to my cousin who abused the heck outta it. It went a year without and oil change, and was rarely if ever serviced by both owners. When I finally got to it, my cousin was planning on sending it to the scrap metal mill (Not the scrapyard). After working out a deal with him, I not only found out that for one this truck had tons of life left, but secondly it was in better shape then most of the other second gen rams that were under $3000. I mean the body was bent to shit, but after replacing the exhaust gaskets, timing cover, and water pump gaskets, the thing ran like a charm. However I was not done there. About a week later I started painting it. After repainting the thing like 5 times, I decied I'd black the whole truck out, and add lime green accents. Most people think of their first car as a basic means of transportation, however that is not the case for me. I have so far added only a airaid cold air intake, and anzo headlights, kenwood stereo and 600 watt amp, along with crappy rattle can paintjob, and smoked taillights. I will be starting the Dana 60 rear end swap, and dana 44 front axle soon. And the engine performace rebuild. But since my name is RustNBondo, don't expect the thing to look clean, because as the name states, it's far from it.
The humble begining of my truck after sitting for 2-3 years.
Started on the matte black paint.

And finally my truck currenlty. Its going to be taken off the road for the next 3-4 months so i can start the rebuild.
