    according to that page the m1008 were only 8800lb gvw with 2900lbs of payload capacity, and with semifloat rear axle, my 83 K20 is 8200lbs GVW rating,



    what gives ?

    sounds like military ones were nothing much more than a painted civvy

    and then the military blazers are only 6400lb GVW, well thats only hair more than a civvy one of those too


    hmm..

    You read that wrong. the trucks have full floaters, the blazers are semi floaters.

    Yes the military trucks are just beefed up civi trucks.
