    Rides on AT 31" tires and just put the canopy on to protect the kids riding in back (due to wifes crewcab being down right now). I bought it with 90,000 original, one owner miles. Great truck so far... But arn't all GM's /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Yes extremly clean rig. Been in dry desert enviroment all its life. My plan is to keep it stock while I build my 60's trail rig right now. It gets 15mpg and that makes it good for my daily driver right now.

    After I get my 60's trail rig built then I am off to build up my 1954 IHC COE car hauler, then Probably repaint and restore the '79.

    350 V8, 4 bbl rochester, SM-465 4spd, Np205 T-case, 10 bolt front, 12 bolt rear w/ 3.73 ratio, 31x10.5 -15 tires. 15 mpg is my Highway average as I drive 250 miles one way to work every week (stay near job during the week then drive home on weekends). At least till I move at the end of this month. So if anyone wants to come to Central Oregon and clean out all my parts trucks out of my yard I am giving away alot of stuff I dont need just to get rid of it (RV chassis, 77 K20 Frame and leaf springs, 73-87 front bumper, 57 IHC Dump truck for parts, 1984 suburban diesel radiator, um...) cant remember everything... need to make a big list.

    Very good and stout set up on that truck. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    BTW, on the parts trucks, do you have any t-case skidplates? If so, PM me your asking price so we can get a shipping quote figured out. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
