    live in Washington. i have a 78 w150. that i want to restore to daily driving condition. it is, well a piece of crap. but its my only mode of transport at the moment. so just little bits and pieces at a time. i bought it for 600 bucks. its got the stupid all time 4x4, NP 435 4 speed, and a 318 small that is stock apart from bolt on's. its a regular cap short bed. and I'm trying to source a step-side for it, cause that's what it originally came with. but it has an old rusted out fleet-side now.

            Welcome aboard from NJ. I worked on some 78 trucks when I worked at a Dodge dealer way back when. I also owned a 76 Trail Duster with that same combo, 318 4wd with the full time transfer case but it also had a sure grip rear. When I put that mother in (locked) 4wd you couldn't stop it. I went through snow that was over 3 feet deep with no trouble. I didn't care much for the fuel usage; it was a thirsty SOB! Good luck with it and as already noted; please post pics!:D

              I've had that combination also but with a 360, loved I had it for twenty five years. Oh yeah welcome to the forum.
