    I've wanted the infamous crew cab SRW K30 since I was wee-high. One poped up for sale just down the street from my grain mill. Paid $4350 for it, it's got 93K original miles, 454ci, new Th400 with 5K on it and has some sort of nice shift kit, 4.10 ratio, and I don't think I need to describe what is in it for drivetrain parts.:wink1:

    If you look real close you can see there is no giant gas guage, thats over in the "four" where it belongs with the tach where it belongs.:D

    The truck will look completely different in about 10 days...;)

    Nice find. Those ute beds are great for storing stuff, but look ugly, and suck if you want to wheel it. Keep posting progress pics

    Well... Paint is a for sure thing, I mean look at it, it's ugly! :haha: The paint is actually in really good shape, since it was kept inside and only used as a camping truck. I think that is why there is zero cracks in the dash. The same dash in my K5 looks like a road map, there is so many cracks in it.:doah:

    With that, it's getting paint. What color is still not quite decided.

    Wheels and tires for sure, it's getting something that is aluminum with rubber thats slightly taller and a smidgin' wider. Although, with the 31x10.50's cranked to either direction, there isn't much room left for a much bigger tire.:doah:

    Lights, it going to get an orange light on top the cab like tow trucks have.

    It's going to get a small portable gas powered welder and an air compressor. Torch setup, and all of my tools that are in my other service truck(anyone want to buy an F600?):D .

    I actually think it will look pretty good having the 'ute bed and some decent wheels/tires under it. It will have a "go anywhere and work on something look..":haha: But yeah, utility beds aren't the cutest things...but I never would have bought it with a standard bed.

    It won't get wheeled, just some mushy ground here or there to get to equipment.

    I dont care what others are saying, I would do the same thing and make it a sweet repair tow rig. I love the ute bed.

    What I'd like to do down the road, depending on the oil usage of this current engine ( it is 25 yrs old), I eventually plan on a 6BTA Cummins repower.

    No way, it's getting the Silverado chrome fender trim added along with the new paint, and a nice set of basically stock size tires. It's not a 4wheeler, it's going to be a clean work truck. Fender trimming and "clean" are at two different ends of the spectrum.:haha:
