K30 Crew cab wrecker

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

Overview

Where to begin,

Might as well start with the uses of the truck. It's the daily driver, occasional tow rig with more towing planned, and medium+ rated trails offroad toy.

It used to be a BLM truck. Don't know what they hauled with it but the stock suspension is completely worn out haha. Passenger side rear spring pack had all but the main leaf and the bottom overload leaf broken. Along with both fuel tanks damaged.

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...
