    The Macho Power Wagons were factory options, and the coolest Dodge trucks ever in my opinion.
    Here's some pictures and information on them:

    I see what you're saying now. It wouldn't be be too hard to clone the Macho trim over to a Ramcharger. I thought about doing to an '85 pick up, but painted it black since that was the original color and sold it before I got too carried away

    So, I tried to push the lightweight envelope even further and it returned a subpar result

    At this point I decided that what was here wasnt worth saving - best to start over, and best to go back to what I know, and do what worked so well on the chevy. Thats not to say I still cant push the envelope - I went with super low mass ribs this time

    Made a noticeable difference, enough to do a whole side of the truck isnt even enough to register on my scale

    Gave us a pre-skin weight of 4oz, not too shabby!

    and I think it looks cool

    Holy crap! 1st, love the grill, you've got some seriously steady hands Donnie! 2nd, that build technique even as a second attempt is seriously cool, much like aircraft building, truss like sub supports, light weight and it does look bad ass!!!! Going to be a very cool Toyo-Macho-Charger!

    Thanks Scott! I really appreciate it, it is definitely a time intensive way to approach it though, hopefully I can get an update posted monday

    Thanks for the encouragement! Seems like it is a lot more round than I thought it was when I started the build, it looks deceptively simple at first glance haha

    Thank you very much, heres hoping finished happens in time for ECSC lol

    I feel like its back on track now, and with a weight of 3.7 oz per side prior to hacking out wheel wells it doesnt seem as though ive added too much weight.

    The finish is much better than it appears at first glance too - I will need a bit of filler but for the most part its very straight.
