    Came across a 1990 GMC C7000 (along the lines of a Top Kick) with a 8.7L Detroit, a 5 speed tranny and Marmon-Harrington 4x4. Any idea what kind of drive train this is? Anything suitable for our rigs?

    yes and no

    as far as overkill goes, thats it

    marmon harrington is like 36 thousand pound axles.. too much for a k5 or pickup, unless you want it skyed out on 60" rice and canes
