Default Dukes of Hazzard --- Canadian style

this dodge truck showed up in the Kingdom last fall and the fellow wanted me to preform magic. but the cost of the magic is not worth it because it is a dodge, lol.

the torque arm supports are ripped down from the frame and trying to get them back up in place would be great fun. the dodge dealers have a great program on right now to purchase a new dodge full size truck so i think that would be the way to go, lol.

yup, straight to the salvage yard with that one! Those are called "torsion" (twist) bars, btw...

PS: looks like they had them cranked all the way up for more lift, adding even more stress to the frame...

Is that a moose ball(s) on the transfer case?

Once the suspension is torn out like that, even magic will have to be repeated regularly to keep it on the road.
Trade in.
