1949 Dodge Diesel Truck 4×4

1949 Dodge Truck Cummins Diesel Power 4×4 Rat Rod Tow Truck
Engine Features:

Cummins Turbo Powered 12 valve from a 1990 D250 truck with roughly 200k miles, no blow by, no issues, starts right up, lots of power and very fast. The engine has slightly larger injectors and the Rotary pump has been turned up a tad. This truck tows amazing and is very powerful and fast. This truck gets 20 miles per gallon and its very cheap to drive because you can run 50% used oil with 50% diesel fuel or 50% used trans fluid with 50% diesel fuel. Will also run off Kerosene.

Trans & T-case:

Brand New 3 speed auto trans with brand new converter and has a 1 year warranty. Replaced rear main engine seal when we did the trans. The T-case is a 205 and works great, the 4×4 works awesome and I recently used it when we went off road to go shooting. Both shifters are on the floor.


Front axle is a D60 and the rear is a D70. I am not sure what gears it has inside the axles but the truck takes off very fast and also goes 75mph easy with lots of gear left to go upwards of 90mph. It has 42″ Michelin Military tires with a weight rating of 7100lbs per tire. The wheels are 20″ custom made to fit the truck. Power steering easy to drive and power brakes easy to stop. Big Aluminum radiator never over heats in the Las Vegas hot weather.


I bought this truck as a work in progress, we went through it all and replaced what was needed to make it a safe reliable truck. I do own a Diesel Repair Shop in Las Vegas, so the truck was gone over very good by all my techs and myself. New windshield glass was installed, it has wipers but are not hooked up, all the lights work and are new. It has runners, blinkers and working tail/brake lights, the battery is good and located behind the seat inside the cab, tool box is included, dual 4″ exhaust stacks, flat bed with goose neck ball, custom made rear bumper and hitch with electrical plug, SONY stereo deck with a old speaker that plays music good, the speedo gauge works but is not accurate so I just use GPS on my phone or go with traffic flow. There are no other mechanical gauges in the truck. Under the dash is the old display gauge set up from the 1990 D250 which throws lights indicating Diagnostic problems, if your in 4×4, etc etc and tat gauge panel works. There are no codes or errors showing on the gauge panel. This truck fires right up every time and is very reliable. The semi truck steel fuel tanks on the sides are for looks but can be plumbed for fuel if you wish. The old side steps came off the same semi truck we got the tank from. All the pin striping and the distressed logos were done in Las Vegas, NV by Magoo. I have never seen one of these trucks like this on the road in driving condition with a Cummins diesel engine, this is truly unique and very fun to drive. This truck turns heads and I get thumbs up all the time! It runs clean but you can make it blow smoke if you want. Will only blow smoke if truck is under a load or at full throttle. Under normal driving conditions it does not blow black smoke and runs clean. Trans shifts firm and smooth with no hiccups or issues. I am 6′ tall and 240lbs and I fit great with more room to spare. Lots of room in the cab for 2-3 adults or 2 adults and 2 small children.
