Just read this thru and that blows. That was a cool truck and I was hoping for a great build. I really hate people who can't drive. I am originally from your area (New Windsor) and I know it is crazy there. Good luck with the Jetta!

Thanks buddy, I'm still a little upset about it. It was fun to drive and comfortable. It was also nice having a true "beater" truck. I could use it like it was meant to be used and not worry about it.

That truck brings back some memories.... sorry to see you lost it...

Here's one i had:


350SBC, TH400, D70HD, Camper Special, and 3+3 cab...

Motor was too small for that much truck, but it was fun while it lasted...

That thing is awesome! Those 4-doors are monsters indeed. I couldn't imagine a truck that size with a 350, it probably had 4.88's though. (At least I HOPE it did) haha.

Nope... 4.10s. It was originally a 6.2L, but somewhere it was swapped out for the gasser.

I hated the 6mpg and the fact that it ate starters, but loved the rest of it... I'm hoping to get another crew duallie someday... I love those big trucks.

Things sounded good though. I put long tube headers on it and ran 2.5" duals out each side.

Haha The 350 was probably better than the 6.2l They were hit or miss! Some ran great, others were rattle-trap diesels that were nothing but nightmares and horror.

I got about 6.5 pulling the Jeep and about 7 - 7.5 empty just driving around.
