    I'm sure some of you saw THIS post where I said I was getting a tow rig and then things didn't go through. After all of the crap last week I got it after all. It's a '93 K2500, 350 auto, silverado with only 82K on it. Here's a couple of pic's. The first one is what it looked like when I got it home, the second one is with my BFG AT's off of my K5 on it. I'll swap the rims after I get back from Texas next month.

    Thanks, I hope it gives me many years of good use. The way it runs and sounds I don't think that will be a problem. :D

    Not at all, $5800. The guy bought it a couple months ago for his kid who will be 16 this summer. He saw what it cost to fill it up and freaked out and decided he wanted an economy car since he didn't have a job yet. I saw his paperwork in the glovebox, the only thing he made off of me was what he had paid on his loan so far, which was only a couple hundred bucks. :D

    One more thing, the tires on the aluminum rims are 33-12.5-15 BFG M/T's. So now I've got a good set of mud tires for wheeling too. :thumb: I'll leave the A/T's on the '93, but I'll switch the rims out when I get back from TX. :D

    Thanks Jeff!!

    this one's got 3.73's in it. I'm going to go back to the stock tire size when my A/T's wear out. :D
