    OK, so here's the deal. I am not sure what I am going to do with "the Dodge" but I am certain I no longer need to own it. I forget the mileage, but it has a 400 C.I. V-8 (only appeared in a coupe of PW model years), full time 4WD, canopy and a professionally sealed (clear shower silicone?) sunroof that was 100% amateur installed.

    Runs strong, has lots of character, no trailer hitch.

    Make no mistake, if you are looking for a cherry ride...keep looking.

    First $1500 cash would take it but I'd entertain trades valued as low as $500. Engine is probably worth that.

    I'd really like a trade, as it seems fitting to me to get something cool for the old beast, rather than $. But $ always works :)

    Trade possibilities...Switch rods, reels, fly tying materials, lines, and any combination. Unless you have all your gear made by omar the tent maker, clothing (jackets, waders, etc.) is probably a non-starter. Put together a list of things...make me an offer!

    The legendary Dodge power wagon. Goes whereever it wants to go, does whatever it wants to do. Paint color: uncertain. But bad to the bone 4wd. This vehicle ought to be in Maupin hauling driftboat and raft trailers from Harpham Flats to Mack's Canyon.

    Year?

    Mechanical condition?

    Mileage estimate, within 50k?

    How many miles on current set of tires?

    Can you provide some more photos (interior, exterior).

    And how is it possible a venerable towing rhinoceros of a machine of this esteemed vintage and international reknown has no hitch and hitch wiring? There oughta be a law...

    Indeed. I think, technically it has a hole in the bumper for a ball and some form of mutilated wiring dangling from the rear.

    Answers to Q's...(well response...)

    Mechanical condition? -- Starts, runs, drives. Dead headlight, but I have two new ones. If I am not mistaken many of the gages do not work and the dash bulbs are mostly out. Tachometer works, as does temp. Signals, wipers and heat is are all operational. Radio is not stock and there is a fair amount of wear an tear on the interior. Breaks work good as well. Tiers have some age.

    Mileage estimate, within 50k? -- I'm going to check in the AM, and get the Odometer reading. It works, so we'll have a real number.

    How many miles on current set of tires? -- No idea. They were on it when I got it. I'll get some closeups of them as well.

    Can you provide some more photos (interior, exterior). -- Absolutely. I'm not interested in anyone getting an unclear image of the state of "the dodge." I'll do a porn star photo shoot of the beast tomorrow and update this listing.

    O'L Al Bundy would sell his first born to buy that rig!

    Maybe graveyard carz could rebuild it.

    I've driven 4x4's for around 35 years and always tip my hat at the o'l power wagons.........
