    Yeah, the hood, grill kind of have that old 50's dodge look. But the axles are defiantly not Dodge, and this is way older than the 50's. I'm a die hard Mopar guy and I used to be pretty up on the old Dodge Brothers stuff. I've been sitting here doing searches of every truck I can think of and nothing has come up yet, Joe.

    It's a relic for sure. In my neck of the woods the old FWD manufacturing company trucks were used as 4x4 municipal plow trucks for winter snow. Elsewhere in the state they were used for other things like quarry work or logging. Good trucks back in the day. Kind of like the early Walter or Oshkosh trucks.

    Art, Jakers, Thanks. I had never heard of the FWD. I just did a search and came up with Seagrave, of which I had heard of, mostly building fire engines. Then I did 52 FWD and that pretty much looked like it. Can't believe those old style axles were still used in the 50's. Now I've got a place to start, Joe.

    Had to get a back up wood hauler last weekend. My old F250 is about to hit 200k. The one thing I'm going to miss is the 8 ft. bed.

    One of my friends had one , one rainy night in late February on his way back to work he saw headlights for a transport truck , what he didn't see was the log trailer 90* across a main highway as the tractor was backing into his driveway because the tractor headlights were on the opposite side of the road , no reflectors on the black trailer and the lights were covered with mud ..
    My friend hit the log loader leg going about 60 mph .

    20180210_104700(1).jpg 20180210_104708_3.jpg 20180210_104810(1).jpg

    60 mph to Zero in the distance of the front bumper to almost the windshield .
    All the airbags deployed , when he came to he could hear people yelling , he hit the power lock button and they pried the door open enough so he could get out , he walked around the truck and waited for the ambulance .
    He got banged up pretty good , a broken cheek bone , a broken sternum and a torn hip rotator cuff but was able to go back to work at the end of April albeit much slower .

    We chalk up the survival on 3 things ,
    #1 , The engineers were on the ball .
    #2 , Nissan's QC is and desire to make a good product is right there .
    #3 , It just wasn't his time .

    If anyone gives you a hard time about buying a "Jap" truck , I'll get you my buddy's number , he'll set them straight for you .
    BTW , his Iphone was on the passenger seat , it exploded when it hit the dash and there's a set of keys jammed between the dash and the center console .

    Nice "Jap" truck ;)

    I had a hard time straying from Ford. But the with the 5.6L, the Titan will get better gas mileage than the Ford 460 and I shouldn't have to worry about the tranny for quite some time. I did see where they are assembled somewhere is Mississippi. Sorry to hear about your friend. Glad he made it through that horrible wreck.

    Thanks. It's an 88. The rear main seal is leaking but the motor runs like a top so I'm debating on fixing it.

    #3 , It just wasn't his time... was just that. When it's your time, it's your time.
