1976 Dodge Power Wagon Truggy - Supersized

For some people there is no such thing as too much of a good thing. Why have a small-block when you can have a big-block? Why settle for 1-ton axles when you can run 2 1/2-tons? This is the philosophy behind Jeremy Winters' '76 Dodge Power Wagon. From the fuel-injected 440 to the dual transfer cases to the Rockwell axles, everything on this vehicle is overkill.

After adding a hard-core drivetrain, Jeremy went a step further and narrowed the nose of the truck, heavily trimmed the rocker panels, and lopped off the whole frame behind the cab. This made room for exceptional tube work and allows the truck to fit through the narrow slot canyons found near his home of Reno, Nevada. The result has the power to scale dunes, tires to churn through mud, and gearing to crawl through the rocks.
