Ramcharger, Trailduster & Power Wagon Grrrr!! Tough Trucks! The Dodge Ramcharger and Plymouth Trailduster were full size SUV's that had good looks and brute strength. The Dodge Power Wagon was comparable to them in toughness, but came in pickup truck form only.

Question Transmission swap

I have an 89 Ramcharger with the 318/ 727A combo but I want to switch to a manual trans. Which one is better to use? I have done a little research and found that the NP435 and NP445 was factory for these trucks but does anyone know if anything else will work?

Also, can I use a 4x4 trans on a 2wd?

Gotta have a 2wd trans. It has the tailhousing you need. (4x4 does not.)

As to which one... That, I don't know.
