Offroad '84 K10 The Animal

Overview

A good friend of mine bought this truck back in 1998 when we decided to move to Lake Tahoe and ski bum it for the winter. It served it's purpose back then quite well but after we moved back home it sat around mostly for the next 13-14 years. This last March he had to move, didn't have a place to store it so he asked if I wanted White Lightning since we always had big plans for the truck and I had the capabilities of doing it. Few days later I hitched up my flat bed trailer and drove the 175 miles where the truck sat under a tree.

84 C20 6.2L Diesel Cab (smog exempt)

The truck came with a few obvious problems including a cracked rear axle, 203 with a stretched chain, gas leaks near the tank, only one tank worked, rotted tires, blown u-joints and a few cosmetic things....

Goals are to make this truck a very capable offroad truck yet still be able to drive to and from the trails.
