C3500HD tow rig

Primary vehicle for towing trailers

Overview

Stumbled across this truck on the local ads and couldn't pass it up. 1995 C3500HD with 6.5 diesel/NV4500. Pretty low miles at a little over 141k, had been used as a electricians truck. New batts and it fired up, mostly good on the test drive. ABS light on, constant clicking noise from the area of the HVAC box, HVAC fan only works on high, cracked windshield, 3rd syncro sucks (grinds), exhaust cut off behind the cab.

Just a few minor problems and in need of a service. Picked up the truck to become the primary tow rig turning the 82 crew cab into the offroad toy. So the service bed is likely coming off and a flatbed will replace it. Or maybe chop down the rear 4 boxes so the gooseneck can be attached. Goals for the bed are:
Gooseneck hitch
Gin poles
Enough storage for roadside tools, not much else

Has the 11ft ish bed length. 60mph cruising speed at 2350rpm.

Still have the C3500HD and it will stick around as the backup vehicle since it doesn't have a backseat or 4x4 capabilities. Picked up this truck over the weekend. 454tbi, nv4500, 4x4, 4.10 gears all stock even on the 215/85r16 tires. Trans was recently rebuilt or replaced and the engine runs well with the common 10mpg cruising at 70mph hauling the motorcycle. Rode down to the border, bought the truck and drove it back. While I prefer a diesel engine have had 454's before with little issues...

General purpose truck. Daily driver, medium trails, tow rig. Simple, capable, and reliable are the main factors.

Something I should have built years ago. Getting all my mechanic/metal working tools on a trailer.
