So, this will be GMT400 number four. I still have the Junkyard Rescue 6.5 but this is another project, and I'll probably sell the 6.5 at some point soon once I do something with the transmission. Well I was just gandering at the Reno Craigslist and came across this truck, he was asking $600 and it has rod knock. I texted the guy asking if it was a manual or automatic, and to my luck he said it was a manual with a granny gear. If it was an automatic I probably wouldn't have bought it. So today (Saturday Jan 7) I went to go look at it, and it knocked pretty bad and the truck has 99,512 miles on it. It's a 1989 Cheyenne, with the W/T grille, hand crank windows, vinyl flooring, and surprisingly has A/C. Also, it is 4x4 with a NP241 transfer case, as well as an extended cab with a long bed. Drove it around the block and it was hard to focus with that thing knocking so goddamn loud, but it shifts perfect with no problems, and the clutch feels good. Loaded it up on the seller's friend's trailer and headed 53 miles up HWY395 to Doyle, CA where the truck now lives. The seller was cool and we talked about guns for a bit too, and he also gave me another set of 2nd gen Ram 2500 rims with tires although only one is in really good shape. Paid $500 for the truck and $160 to have it hauled. I would have done it myself with my Ram 2500 but I couldn't hunt down a trailer in time, and there is no way it would fit on a U-Haul trailer (which has a max wheelbase of 133" and a ECLB is 155.5") Unloaded it, and the guys left, and moments later we were going to drive it around but 30 seconds into that the engine let go and that ended our vibe for the night, so then we drove home in freezing rain with snow everywhere so the drive to Susanville from Doyle was hell. So my friend Tyler has a 350 TBI already pulled from his wrecked K5 sitting on a pallet, so tomorrow we are going to go out to Doyle with hope that we can swap the engine in a day! The drivers seat is wrecked, but the truck has red interior so I will be taking the front seats from my 6.5 and swapping them in as well. Drivers door is also wrecked, bed has dents, headliner sags, needs front bumper brackets, but besides that the truck is pretty solid. Here are the two pics from the craigslist ad, I tried taking some tonight and the few that came out okayish are below. I'm extremely siked for this truck because it's an ECLB, 4x4, and has an SM465. If I ever hunt down an nv4500 I'll swap it in. I also love the color, so if it ever gets repainted it'll be the same color!
