1994 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 Project Jinxy - Part Seven Of The EndPosted in How To on September 1, 2009 Comment (0)
As much as I wanted my truck to be done and ready to drive three months ago, I'm really glad we took the time and finished this truck the right way. I've owned Jinxy for thirteen years, and after waiting this long, it would be dumb to rush to complete the build. This is the end-the final build for this '94 Dodge! Sure, I may try a different tire or something in the future, but this truck for the most part is going to be a driver and play toy from here on out. Jinxy's ongoing project truck status is quickly coming to an end.
But before it's over, I still have to get some spiffy new red paint thrown on it, finish up some miscellaneous wiring, test the suspension to make sure the shock valving is correct, and give the truck a good shakedown run. New exhaust has to be made as well since the upper suspension links in Off Road Evolution's front four-link were going to get into the old exhaust routing when the suspension compresses. It sounds pretty good with open headers actually, but I'm not sure I'd last more than a day before the fuzz nailed me for a noise violation.
This month Off Road Evolution finished up all the final welds and last little pieces on the suspension, sent out all the suspension links and bumpers to be powderocated a textured anthracite, and we added some neat goodies to make off-roading trips just that much better.
Off-Road Evolution has done an incredible job (and had incredible patience) with Jinxy's build, and I'd just like to say thanks again for finishing up the red truck that was never quite done. I can't wait to hop in it and spend a bunch of hours behind the wheel driving north towards Canada.
In a couple months, I'll touch back on this truck after it's been on a couple off-roading trips, and we'll let you know how it's working out....
