The Crew Cab!!!

Just acquired this 88 GMC K3500 Crew cab a few days ago.
Has a good running 6.2 N/A with supposedly 60k on it from a 83, the guy I got it from painted it and put it in.
He used the glow and fuel filter setups from the 83. Has a new radiator, a recently rebuilt th400 auto.
My plan is to redo the interior, put a quad headlight nose on it, turbo and maybe down the road a 2.5-3" lift.

This is the condition it was in when I went to look at it and bought it.







He did a lot of work on it, most of the frame has been wire brushed and repainted, I finished up the rear part a few days ago.

Getting hauled to my house...




Here are a bunch more pics I took today.




It is missing a few A/C parts, evaporator, condenser, compressor and lines so I will have to hunt all that stuff down,










R/S Rocker is shot.... L/S is fine



Rear half of the frame I started painting.




Cab has a few dents from when the previous owner hit it with a flat bed he was taking off the back, it also damaged the r/s rear door.




Drivers door has been cut for something, it is a square cut and not oval like for a speaker, just going to replace it.



Another interior shot..




Underneath it is in very good shape, a little wire brushing on the rust spots and paint it up.







It has new fender wells on both sides but needs a R/S fender, it is rotted around the lower front.

Need to find a decent dually bed first.

Then find a whole suburban that I can swap the interior from and quad headlight nose.

This is the color scheme I going to use, with a maroon, black or gray interior (what ever I can find that is complete.

Also did some more inspection today and found it has a non egr intake.
And absolutely no blow by when I take the oil fill cap off.
And it is missing the bracket for the gear reduction starter so ordered one.
($13 on epay with free shipping)
Also don't like the looks of the starter bolts so I am going to order new ones.

I need to find a few cheap exhaust pieces, don't want to sink a lot of money in a exhaust system
that is going to get removed when I put a turbo on it.

Plus it will be transformed from a GMC to a Chevrolet grill and rear gate panel.

Going to use this gate panel I had originally got for the K20..

$2000 plus $160 to haul it.

And just left a $200 deposit on a $300 dually bed that needs some work.
Gotta figure out how to get it home, I think taking the bed apart is the best bet. A buddy suggested a engine hoist but I don't think thats going to lift it high enough to flip over and set it on his bed rails.
Anybody take one of these beds apart?

maybe make a frame/jig out of 2x4's, so the 2x4's sit on the bed rails (maybe with extra supports in the middle), and then the dually bed sits on the 2x4s and then strap the whole thing down.

I think this would minimize the possibility of damage to either your friends truck bed and the dually bed.

Yea we have done this method before a couple times but always some machine around to pick the bed up.
His truck is a 04 2500 HD so it's pretty high up.
The guy I am getting the bed from has a wrecker but it doesn't run.

maybe use a ramp, either from the side or the rear, or do it in 2 stages (from the ground onto sawhorses, then sawhorses onto jig on truck) [or ramp from sawhorses to truck].

or maybe see if someone rents small flatbed trailers in your city, where the bed is just flat, over the wheels. that shouldn't be very expensive for a couple of hours rental.

Could you rent a small u haul trailer and somehow shore it up a bit and strap it down? They're only like $25 to $35 to rent.

I was checking over at 67-72 and it's easy to take them apart.
Some guys said about a half hour a side.
