About

The Dodge D450 1978-1981 was a third generation, medium-duty chassis cab pickup truck. Part of the Chrysler-supported D-Series of pickups, the D450 featured options of 3.7 liter single barrel carburetor slant-6, or 5.2 liter two-barrel V8 and 5.9 liter four barrel carburetor V8 engines. The D450 also featured beefed-up suspension and structural reinforcements. Three speed automatic transmission was standard and the vehicle came with options of power assisted brakes and cruise control.

The maintenance routine includes engine oil and filter changes and tire rotation every six months, as well as annual brake lining inspection. A Dodge D450 1978-1981 repair manual from Haynes features detailed mechanical guidance for all experience levels, and includes over 600 photo illustrations.
