    I will always have a soft spot for these older GM's. I had a 85 K30 that sat on 35's with a 6.2 diesel that was stolen and never recovered :angry:

    78 cj5 304 v8 3 speed.. Bought it for 800.00

    Was a pile.. Only thing it had going for it was the fiberglass body that was put on a few years back

    Made it into my senior project..Ended up selling it before it was 100% done and can kick myself in the butt for letting it go!! Had so much time into it.. Really needed a re paint since the so called "painter" Said he could paint it for a good price.... Could of did a better job myself.. Was a 20 foot paint job

    I really miss these 2 trucks. But when they hit 90,000-95,000 miles its time to go.

    [​IMG] Here is mine my first new truck was an 05 f250 6.0 fx4 sport sold it for top dollar with a 115000 on it. Hated myself for selling it so a year later when its sister truck came up forsale i jumped on it. Same truck that my friends father had bought a week after i got mine only difference was the color and i pocketed 150000 [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Trucks got 180000 on it now and been nothing but good to me

    Those style trucks will always have a soft spot for me. A bulletproof 6.0 is amazing

    Well then it must be true. Anything you read on the internet has to be true right? :laughing:

    Literally, got away.. Due to rust.
    Owned this truck for 8 years. Plucked it out of a field DOA for $1,000 with the plow. Replaced the starter, PMD and drove it for 2-3 years blasting ether into it as the glow plugs were rotted off. Replaced the engine with a junkyard special, rebuilt the transmission, swapped a Holset WH1C and tons of other little things. Drove it another 6-7 years before the frame started crumbling. I had so much hard work into this truck, plowed all my Residential drives with it the whole time i owned it.

    Serious memories in this ride, was a big part of my life.

    This thread documents almost the whole life of the truck. Check out all the pictures:
