While our Muddy Monday feature will almost always feature the full sized Ram pickup, this week we take a look at the rare Dodge Ram D50 tearing through the mud with a hefty dose of Mopar muscle.
The odds are good that many younger DF’ers don’t even know what a Dodge Ram D50 while our older members may recognize this Mitsubishi-built compact pickup from the 1970s, 80s and 90s. While the D50 came with a fairly uninspiring 4-cylinder engine that would hardly get it through deep water let along thick mud – this particular D50 is powered by a 446 cubic inch Mopar big block V8. Thanks to a host of other modifications which include a massive lift kit, a pair of off-brand differentials and a long list of engine mods, this is one unquestionably one of the nastiest off-roading D50 pickups that I have ever seen and oddly…Ive seen quite a few.
So, crank up your speakers and enjoy watching this 1982 Dodge Ram D50 in action!
