here are my two GMfullsizes. had to move the 72 from my moms to my dads, because the mom is moving and has no room and my dad likes yard ornaments.

they are made by multi mile, i have no idea what they are called, they are 34-9.00 and dig like mad. the deisel is 353cu in, so like 5.8ish. engine was built in 78 and my dad bought it new in the crate in the mid eightys from a farmer that bought it for a spare pump/drive engine for an irrigation system. pulls great and spins pretty fast for its day. when i have some time/space its getting a turbo and hopefully a five speed.

mounted these up tonight after work. just traded my stock tires for these with a buddy from work. hes trading his 03 ECSB in so i stole these from him.

this is with no crank whatsoever. cut maybe an inch of the plastic on the bumper. no rubbing for normal street use.

nex time it rains (who knows when that could be) i'll get a chance to try the puppies out

before 245s street tread

im guessing you're talking about the 72?
its a k20, had d60 front and rear sm465/205. 8 inch all spring skyjacker lift and 39/15-16.5 MT bajas on those SNAZZZZZY whitespokes:banghead: no engine yet, have a 454 shortblock waiting for my lazy ass to finish. um really nothing to spectacular. it will just end up being a cruizer. my grandad bought it new in 72 and its a one family 2 owner truck. i have the protecto plate and original purchase reciept and all that stuff.

the 73 is a k20 too.

the 04 is a 2500hd 6.0 auto

I thought all the 73's rusted away, cool seeing a survivor!
this one is well on its way. bed is shot, rockers and cab corners are suprsingly good, floors are "Air conditioned" and the front fenders are rusted to hell, the hood has that cool 73-87 crease in it...
its a sweet beater. more fun driving that thing in HS than anything else i drove

thanks

when you are 14 and have a limited budget shit happens. someone had a set of tires that fit my rig, cost 1300+ new, and had less than 2k on them. i really wasn't in a position to be picky. i paid like 700 for them. not ideal but for where i was when i bought them i am/was happy. they toss mud OK, but for sure will be replaced when i hav money and a million other things get changed on the truck
