Defiant Dodge 2500 4x4 - We're Not Gonna Take It

Posted in How To on June 1, 2006

Just when you'd almost forgotten about parachute pants, mullets, and gratuitous guitar solos, we decided to dredge them back up. If you weren't there to experience it, trust us that music, clothing, and trucks have all taken several turns for the better -- at least we think so. While tastes in music and clothing are both subjective and debatable, we don't think there's any question that today's trucks soundly eclipse the offerings of yesteryear.

One of today's trucks that bridges the gap between current and retro is the Dodge 2500 4x4. The time-proven solid front axle is suspended via a four-link and coil system. Under the hood is a thoroughly modern Cummins 24-valve Turbodiesel with electronic fuel injection. The gasoline version of the Ram sees the newest version of the storied Hemi engine in place of the Cummins. Both incarnations are winners.

Meanwhile, let's get back to the bad music theme. A recurring idea during the Era of Spandex was the freedom, nay the inalienable right, to do whatever, whenever, without fear of negative consequences. We like that kind of freedom when we're in the dirt. Defiant Truck Products offers a simple, sturdy, and stylish way to help your Dodge play off-road and live to tell about it. Back away from the hair spray and keep reading.
