it seems like there were about 5200 or so ramchargers produced for 1993, which included all models. As far as the CS ramchargers goes, it seems like green was mos common, with red in a close 2nd....then white, and lastly black. I have only seen a couple of the black rigs...not common at all....

Fuel pump crapped out Thursday on my way to lunch; got it replaced it yesterday. Not a horrible job except getting the skid plate back on and trying to empty these new 5-gallon EPA/CARB-friendly gas cans. Ended up returning them after I was done as the spouts were horrible on them. Trying to get the standard spout/separate vent model from Canada (where they're made). :roll:

I've taken a few better pictures of the Ramcharger...

Since the fuel pump, it's received new Champion plugs, Bosch wires, Accel cap, rotor and coil, Denso O2 sensor, new window scraper seals (inside and out), Bendix brake booster, new ball joints, rotors and pad, and alignment!

A week ago I received a package from south of the border and got around to installing it yesterday while the weather was nice...

The hatch gate panel came from a Mexican '94-'96 Ramcharger Limited.

Next up (possibly today) are the '94-'96 honeycomb style grille inserts. Back in late October I cleaned them up and painted them satin black...

Thanks guys! It's definitely a fun vehicle to drive daily -- and the tailgate panel really does update it a little bit. :D

Anyhow, onto the honeycomb grille inserts -- I installed them yesterday, wasn't crazy about them, and removed them 24 hours later. It wasn't the radical transformation I was envisioning...since just about all '94+ trucks have them -- and I really liked how they looked on the '94-'02s with the painted sports grilles. :|

Anyhow, I have them up for sale -- only for what I have into them (cost plus shipping from Mexico to Colorado).

The past two days at the junkyards have been very fruitful! :D

One of the Denver yards said it had a '92 W150 and '93 D150 (that weren't there a week ago), but figured they'd have been pretty picked over by now (typically the case), luckily I was wrong as I hit the mother load for parts!

To start off with the '93 D150 hadn't even been touched yet and had a NEARLY perfect grille (with chrome headlight bezels to boot), 2 vehicles down from it a '79 W150 with a VERY nice driver quality quad headlight grille (planning for the girlfriend eventually getting a '79/'80 to make a white Macho clone)!

The D150 also gave up its cluster (only 102k mi showing on it -- ex-dealer parts truck), Dodge Ram mats, message center, glove box, steering wheel, hub caps, and tan (spice) trim parts I needed for the RC.

The '79 W150 had a really really nice speedometer showing only 2/10ths of a mile on the ODO (which is odd as the gauge is perfect but the rest including the housing were faded/trashed/broken so I'm assuming it's a NOS unit). I took its fender emblems too.

The '92 W150 (3/92 production) had a nice shift boot assembly that I snagged (NV4500 I think), a useable cluster, and a rear left fender molding (for the RC).

And, lastly, another AM/FM/CD/Tape from the local yard up here in Northern Colorado (only thing I could find -- no new trucks in that particular yard).

All-in-all VERY worthwhile trips to the yards! :D
