Youngest Dodge 4x4 that you have seen

Hi;

I'm looking for a winter project and am wondering what the newest year Dodge 4x4 with an aftermarket 4x4 system under it was. ie not home brewed. I have found a 1977, but am sure there must be a more recent vintage floating around out there.

Thank you.

Gavin

Re: Youngest Dodge 4x4 that you have seen

I've seen a late 80's model 4x4, but I cannot say that it was not home brew. I think SalemKroger offered it into the late 90's, but even on their website they steered potential customers into a Ford conversion because of the chassis.

That said.... A '77 Dodge van is still the identical chassis to a 2000+ Dodge van. No changes were made, except for the engine/transmission offering. In '99 (I think, give or take) Dodge extended the nose a bit, but the chassis did not change any, except for the engine subframe.

Shawn;

Nice looking rig. Front coil suspension I assume. Where did you find it? Have you seen a newer dodge than your 95?

Re: Youngest Dodge 4x4 that you have seen

There were a couple for sale on ebay around 18 months ago. They were professional 4x4 conversions done for a California telecom company. I don't remember the exact year but they were certainly more recent than '95. Someone on the forum thought they were done by Salem Kroger. Ask them when they stopped doing the Dodge conversions. That should be the most recent model available.

Hah! From his photo gallery I can see why he might be heading to 4x4. Not sure I want all that glass, a penthouse roof, and four wheel drive on the same unibody chassis.

Thank for the info.

Re: Youngest Dodge 4x4 that you have seen

Yeah its front coil suspension.

I have done alot of looking and have never seen another Dodge that was converted by Quigley in the 90s. I know they are out there though. I have seen some done by Salem Kroger and Im pretty sure they will still do a 4x4 conversion on a Dodge. Because of the Dodge subframe design though it is more costly to convert to 4x4. I think people usually go with a Ford because of that.

Ive only seen 1 that was newer than mine and its for sale right now....Dont know about the conversion. I know it isn't Quigley though. http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/dak/c ... 77257.html

My van spent most its life in California. The guy bought the van from a dealer, sent it to Sportsmobile in Cali for the camper conversion, then to Quigley for the 4x4 conversion. I purchased it from the original owner.

Re: Youngest Dodge 4x4 that you have seen

The 96 Dodge 4x4 was just posted today. How'd you know???? Nice rig. It's the second 4x4 van he's sold this year.
