    I have often wondered what happened to my old truck. When I moved to Az. four years ago, my truck caught fire on the way. I was forced to total it out. I couldn't do anything to save it because of money constraints. Anyway, It all happened in Canyonville OR. I would imagine that my truck went to a wrecking yard in Eugene OR. It was an 85 K5, 4" lift, 33" tires (mismatch), 3/4 ton running gear, Pioneer Stereo w/CD changer, CB w/dual antennas, indy slot wheels, and a bunch more stuff. The paint was Tan top and botton with the red stripe down the middle. I had also painted the grill red to match. I had also etched a chevy bowtie in the back window. Like I said, it caught fire, in the engine compartment because the Tranny blew the main seal and sprayed fluid on the manifold.

    I know it is a long shot, but I was hoping to find out that one somebody was able to pick it up and save it. It would make me feel alot better to know if it was still around. This picture is before some of the mods above but, it will give you a good idea of what it looked like. Thanks for reading everybody. :laugh:

    Did it have a custom roof rack and a custom built 14Bff that was converted to 6 lug?

    Nope. It had a stock roof rack, and plain old D60 and D44. That is what it had when I had it. I'll try to find a picture.

    Like I said in my original post, "This picture is before some of the mods above but, it will give you a good idea what it looked like."

    I couldn't find a more current pic. I had a hard enough time finding this one.
