A guy I work with asked me where I haul my scrap metal metal to. I gave him directions and then asked what he had. He said an old 3/4 ton 2 wheel drive truck and some rear ends. I told him I would come over and buy his "junk" from him so he wouldn't have to haul it. I will keep some of it and scrap the rest to recover what I spent on the junk. My truck/trailer weights were: 3,000 lbs steer axle, 2,340 drive axle, and 8,340 trailer axles (7,000 lb trailer, no trailer brakes ) for a gross weight of 13,680 lbs, all pulled by a stock '96 Z71. The truck on the trailer had everything loaded in the bed and it pulled awful; I drove 30 mph all the way home. This is what I got: 1978 3/4 ton 2wd, not running 2 extra 14 bolt FF axles (3 total 14 bolts including the one in the truck) 2 truck rears, 12 bolts - one is good, one is junk 10 bolt from a Caprice - junk 2 good radiators a set of 52" springs (3 leafs and an overload) 3 new tires for my small single axle trailer 2 15x8 white spoke wheels a big pile of engine parts and aluminum. Now the pics: Here is the truck. It has some new bias ply "farmer" mud tires on the rear. We plan to run it in a demolition derby. Here are two 12 bolts and two 14 bolt FF axles. All 3 of my new 14 bolts are 3.73 open carriers. This is in one of the 12 bolt rears. I don't know what it is, but it seems to work good. YUK! I think I will scrap this one! I don't have any running 4x4's right now, so we took my '92 Sport out wheeling. It has a 5.0 HO, AOD, and a trac-lock rear. The only carnage was busting off one of the tail pipes and ripping off the rear ground effects. It gets high centered real easy, but a good way to get "unstuck" is for all 4 guys in the car to sit on the same side, then the tire that was off the ground will touch the dirt. One of the pics shows the mud in the front suspension area. And here is my new helper. He is always in my way, but I still love him. Well... that's about it until next weekend.
