Congrats to @MK82 for the last TOTM win of 2021!!

Here's some info/pics from the owner:

Since I’ve had it, I drove it daily for a little while, had the xfer case rebuilt due to some leaking seals. Replaced a water pump and thermostat, intake and valve cover gaskets. I stopped driving it a year ago due to both front and rear main seals leaking pretty bad. She is currently awaiting a brake job (locked up front right caliper), and I think I’m just going to pull the motor and go through it. My plans for the truck are to basically restore it like I would have bought it if I could have back in the 70s. I have purchased a period correct Hickey roll bar for it, hickey folding side steps, and I’m on the look out for a Hickey grill guard. I’m going to keep her the same factory colors, and I have a set of the factory wagon wheels. She’ll get a CB, and I’m going to try and find a swing gate from an old Ramcharger or trail duster so I can mount the spare tire behind the tailgate and get a bed from a truck with dual fuel tanks and install that set up.



I do want to thank ya'll so much for the nomination. It really means a lot.

Congratulations! I love the old school plus you have 2 newer Mopars parked beside of it which puts the icing on the cake for me. Can't wait to see it after it is freshened up!

Love that PowerWagon. Had a '78 for a while but after lending it to my brother-in-law and he returned it with a burned out clutch, I sold it cheap.
My '79 Ramcharger has the same paint scheme but definitely not as nice.
