Thanks.
I got it out of a Army base in IA about 6 years ago.
The dually configuration is rare. Most all are single wheel as you
Probably know.
23xxx. miles on the clock.

Got rid of the camo and repainted with original base 383 OD green
Added cab lights (to meet DOT/IL 80" laws) and emblems for a more civy look.

Is that a 40's Chevy I spy??

Oh even better!!! I love the old power wagons. It's definitely near the top of my very long list of cars/trucks I would like to own...

That's a sweet looking power wagon! What all have you done to it, what's under the hood?

I just picked up a J Code 1988 v20 Suburban with the 6.2 liter I towed 7000 pounds with it when I fired it up yesterday and It did great and it's been sitting for 6 years so of course one tire needs a valve stem and my vacuum pump is no longer working and I get that random stall when the water in fuel light comes on so a little bit of work to do but it started up just fine up here in North Dakota with no plug in right now

Have a couple of 6.2 powered trucks myself,

The crew cab will getting a Banks setup installed in the spring.
The 83 K20 is just a plow truck so it will get just enough attention to keep it running.

I have an 83 k20 6.2 4x4 dually with banks turbo and gearvendor auxiliary transmission, she runs butter smooth but blows white smoke on cold start, just had the fuel injectors rebuilt and new glow plugs put in but still smokes :/. Having a hard time finding parts for the engine, can't find anyone that will rebuild it just in case it comes to that lol
