No intake or carb but still a great deal and sounds nice and healthy.

So I've been making a list for the car for the remainder of the "off season":

Fender Rust Repair - moparmike will be fixing the rust in the front fenders, though I still need to take the damn fenders off and deliver them to him.
Stereo - new headunit, speakers, etc. Stereo might not be big to some people in a classic, but I would like to be able to at least listen to the radio in the car.
New motor - still looking for direction on this. Had been planning a Magnum swap, but now am thinking G3 Hemi might be more worthwhile, we'll see.
New Steering Box/Reservoir - it seems mine is leaking from one of the two. I'd rather not do the box right now because if I do it I want to do the Borgeson or Firm Feel upgraded one and I don't know if I want to pay for either of those right now. But we will see once I explore the issue more.

Now you've just gotta work your plan.

Me? I don't even have a plan.

Been looking hard for a motor to swap in.
I haven't been considering the stock 318 as a viable candidate to remain happy and reliable next year as I began to have stalling issues with it at the end of the 2015 season.

Lots of cheap Mopar magnum motors out there in junkyards, but not a lot of good complete trucks like I'd like to find to make that swap easier.

In looking at G3 Hemi motors, I am having trouble finding anything that is affordable for me right now. Surprising to me what those motors go for.

I might have to accept the 318 as the motor for now and spend some time figuring out what is causing the stalling issue.
I was secretly hoping to have gone to EFI by this year, but oh well.

There's got to be a complete Magnum-powered truck out there somewhere. I was checking Craigslist for a while to see about an engine for my Ram with less miles on it. In your case, look for one with a 360 (I guess they were called 5.9s at that point). They're out there.

Here you go. A little pricey, but you could probably sell the frame to recoup some money.

That's way to much money for that. There was a 2003 ram with the new 5.7 hemi in it for that price and you got the whole truck for $1500
