    I bought this \"interesting\" K30

    I bought this for the axles, but now I am thinking it would be fun to put some big tires on it the way it is. Hmmm. I do have a good 350 and a TH350/NP205 sitting in the shed.
    Some of you have seen some pics of this thing before.

    Is it an illusion or has the body been narrowed? The cab seems too skinny side to side and the tires seem to stick out too much. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Re: I bought this \"interesting\" K30

    i dunno id use the Cab for somethin. Youd have one of the more Different Rigs out there... Looks like youd have your work cut out for you.

    Im curious though.... It doesnt look like the person who built it was making a trail rig... (bumpers still look wide as hell) Why did they decide to narrow it like that? and how long ago did they narrow it?

    I remember seeing a picture of that thing awhile ago, The cab was sitting in a field.

    Yeah, I'm sure no one here would have paid anything for the 60 front. And believe me, I know what it would take to make it go.


    It was modified to use as a sprayer. As in to spray various pesticides and other chemicals on the Cherry trees in the orchard. The body was narrowed to fit between the rows of trees - they are trimmed up high enough that the tires do not matter. It had about a 500 gallon water tank and a sprayer that consists of a 6 cylinder International engine that runs a big pump and a big fan to disperse the spray all mounted on the back of the chassis.

    Re: I bought this \"interesting\" K30

    This may sound kinda odd, but I'll take it off your hands after you get the axles out. I can't believe some of these guys, that thing would ROCK!!! Nice and narrow, 4" of lift, 44" tires, it would be PERFECT!!!!!!

    BTW, I'm fairly serious about wanting that cab and front clip. Shipping would be a bitch, but I would take it in a HEARTBEAT!!!!!!!!

    Re: I bought this \"interesting\" K30

    Yes, it is the original windshield with a piece cut out of the middle. I think they just ground the edges smooth and put some sealer down the seam. The back window is plastic though.

    Well, not exactly out of the middle.

    Re: I bought this \"interesting\" K30

    Will that thing seat two people, or is it a single seat rig? It is rather interesting in its own way, it looks factory, whoever modified it did a good job. It would make a good trail only vehicle, but looks like a lot of work to get it going. That would be worthy of a magazine shoot when you were done with it though /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
