Chazdzl23 '95 Ram

1999 Dodge Ram V10 Storms Alaska - Darren Ballein is loads up his Ram and heads to Alaska on an All-American epic journey. Follow us along the entire journey.

Chazdzl23 '95 Ram

1995 Dodge Ram 1500

Here is Chaz's 1995 Ram 1500 4x4. It currently rides on 35" BFG Mud Terrains and has a 3in. body lift and 3" Rancho suspension lift. It has a Magnum 360 engine with a K&N filtercharger. It has a flowmaster exhaust with 2.5" pipes. Future upgrades include swapping the 3" Rancho kit for a 5.5" Superlift suspension. 39.5" Swampers are next then followed by 4:56 gears from Reider Racing. And if the other half allows it, a Paxton Supercharger.

Ron Bennington's '84 Ram

1984 Dodge Power Ram SE150

Ron owns a 1984 Dodge Power Ram SE150 4x4. The truck is powered by a 360 rebuilt in February of 98. The rebuild included a Holley four barrel, Edelbrock Performer intake, Mopar orange ECU, MSD Blaster II coil, Crane 8.5mm wires, Bosch Platinum plugs, Crane "Torque Beast" Cam and Auto meter gauges. Sounds in Ron's truck are provided by a Kenwood stereo with Infinity and Kenwood speakers. Other options/accessories include Borgensens needle bearing steering column, Dana 44 front with a Lock Right and Corporate 9.25 rear with sure grip, both running 3.21 gears, BFG 33x11.50 Mud Terrains, Superwinch hubs and Explorer Pro Comp 3000's. She may be ugly, but there is not much that she can't climb. The photo was taken in Hawaii were Ron is currently stationed. Ron was a little too far over to the right hand side of the rut and fell in. But with the help of the locker and sure grip he was able to back out about 5 feet and continued to motor up the hill.

Shawn Green's '92 Dakota

1992 Dodge Ram Dakota

Shawn bought his 92 Dakota in July 1997. It was a great find with only 28,134 miles on the odometer! It wasn't too much to look at when Shawn purchased it, but that wasn't going to be the case very long. Thus far, he has added a Gaylord hard tonneau cover, grill and brush guards, and EGR bug shields and side window deflectors. Recently, he added a set of Pirreli Scorpion A/T 30"x9.5" tires. Future plans include a 4" body lift and Scorpion 33" tires. It has been out into the hills in the San Francisco bay area a few times during the storms. It has never had any problems charging up the hills or through any mud piles. Once the lift and the new tires are added, it should make it even more exciting!
