Dodge Ram The Green Monster


Warner Robins, GA

About my car

This 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 was bought used from my dad's former boss, and before he died in February of 2011, my dad bought this truck for work until he started driving a company truck as his daily vehicle. When I got my license back in 2015, my oldest sister insists on selling me her Cadillac DeVille, it was being close to being sold, but the rack and pinion for the steering broke, and it was a costly thing to repair. My dad brought the Dodge down here for me to drive. This truck has been restored from front to back, I did the back bumper trim, headlights, taillights, and even the third brake light.

The unique feature about this truck is the transmission: It's a 5 speed and it's very rare to see a half-ton pickup on the road now these days with a 5 speed manual transmission.

It is my daily vehicle, and I'm planning to do some projects on it like installing flag poles on the back and have the US flag and a 2nd flag flying if I go tailgating or going to the beach

  • This car was made in 1996 and I've driven it since 2008
