Service bed trailer

Old service truck turned into a trailer to get my tools organized and accessible

Overview

Been needing to get my tools organized and since I've been working as a mobile diesel/hydraulic mechanic figured a trailer would be the best choice. This bed is probably going to only be temporary for a few years. Surface rust everywhere, couple through spots, dents, etc. 9ft long Knapheide body for a dually.

(Edit) Done with this as a trailer, bed transferred to the crew cab.

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.
