It's Fast — Dropped a 360 C.I. Smallblock with RPM airgap Intake and 670 cfm Street Advenger Carb, Headers and Sidepipes. The interior and body are In MINT condition, This Truck is A BLAST too drive, hoping to get a Posi rear end for it soon, The thing spins the tires when you punch it. Havn't taken it to the strip yet, Just waiting to get the timing dialed in.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Over 350 Horsepower

Cons: It's A Truck

Cargo Capacity:
Fuel Economy:
Front Seats:
Maintenance Cost:

Hook Up And Pull. — Lot of torque and power. Its got a 92 twelve valve cummins motor. One ton suspension. Never have to worry about hookin on to a load and go down the road. Mud and snow no worry at all it just crawls through it no problem.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Dont need to worry about what your hauling.

Cons: The  torque of the motor cause the fan to eat up the radiator.

She's Big And Old And Reminds You Of That Every Time You Fire It Up. By Nolan

Why spend 70,000 on a new Truck when I can build one for a fraction of that? A conversion to a 4x4 Cummins machine is down the pipe. The 'Million Mile' diesel came out in the Dodges a few years later ... Read More
