    Chevrolet Class 4/5/6 Silverado

    still has that shitty Isuzu/Kodiak look of the 2003-2008 Chevy Kodiak trucks that mostly Schwanns used. I dunno we are waitin for the word that ours is in. have the new tow body waiting in the shop for install

    Unishift Trans Swap out

    depends on which Monoshift and duplex you have??? if you are takin a 67 series out and putting one in youll be fine with mounts. same with a 72 series. I think the floor was cut for a monoshift same as a duplex with the tear drop hole. if you install the triplex there is a lot more work.

    Random Red B

    no doubt that B was probably done back when you could buy a new front clip from Tidewater reasonably as the sheetmetal looks straight
  6. ialways thought Miss Jesse started out as a B75 and Waylon had a shop make it a B77 or B773, somewhere I have read a story of the Diesel shop he used back in the day for his fleet. he also had an F model and I have seen pictures of a cabover KW

    Donaldson air filter housing, butterfly valves?

    blowing snow=blocking it out, theres the simple explanation. that goes way back to the B model years with the Summer and Winter setting on the air cleaner

    NOS door installation

    JC whitney has the solid foam in different sizes. I used it for vent and doors before. the hollow core stuff is totally garbage in a B model

    NOS door installation

    went to the local paint glass and body supply store Larry. I cheaped out and only put the chrome beaded stuff on the top where people could see. put the cheap window channel in the channel in the panel itself. I used black weatherstrip adhesive. I think the window wipes themselves I used generic cut to fit stuff. maybe for an 70's Ford or square body Chevy. I have used R model stuff on a B model before to

    Jersey Macks

    that Franchi red R appears to be a mix and match of parts?? old style cab with short back, new style grab handle and roof lights, older style R600 emblem, 1979ish hood with the rear fender crease, 1980's style fuel tanks....

    Chevrolet Class 4/5/6 Silverado

    we ordered a 4500. I meant when you think about a truck with 22.5's your usually talkin air brakes to and above 2600 gvw. granted there are some IH Penske trucks with juice brakes also with 22'5. to me I hate the 03-08 Kodiak 45-6500 series. the Duramax was a great engine in a pick up or one ton as long as people kept their fingers out of them. we have a 1 ton 05 wrecker at work with a Miiller body on it with almost 300,000 hard miles on it. that's the one the new 4500 is replacing. we have also had 5-6 of the 4500 old van cab series Kodiaks with flatbeds on them. they see a lot of abuse but it seems your always fixing something on them and the interior plastics and panels left a lot to be desired. that being said we have a few with 400,000 miles on them but god are they rattle traps. th last 'Real Kodiak' as I call them was our 2000 , 6500 with a little 3206 Cat and 7 speed spicer in it with the pickup style cab Detroit locker. that was a good truck. I think when GM went with the van style Isuzu cab it left a lot to be desired. glad they have went back to the pickup style cab

    Chevrolet Class 4/5/6 Silverado

    22.5 wheels usually mean air brakes and above 26000 g v w. we ordered a 19 about 7 months ago. its in this week. we ordered our own wrecker body s we will see what happens. personally we have 5-6 of the old style junk in my opinion 04-08 Kodiak style with the van style cab. hope this is better
