  • 74 Power Wagon swap

    I have a 74 w100 shot bed with drum brakes and divorce transfer I'm restoring. Just curious would you guys rebuild this set up or go more modern. Have a 85 ramcharger with disk brakes, axles and good transmission and transfer to swap out. My son will get his license in a couple years and will be driving it
    Thanks

    It all depends on what you want and how you intend to show/use it. If you want to restore it, I'd keep it stock, if you are looking to drive it and want the improvements the 85 donor offers, then go for it.
    I drive a DODGE, not a ram!

    Thanks,

      Purists often regard 1974 as the zenith of old school civilian power wagons. Last year before small bolt pattern hubs, married t-cases & eventually auto-hubs & CAD took over. Personally I wouldn't do any swapping. Any reason why your son couldn't drive the ramcharger?
