Here is my "new to Me" hauler.
[img]/club2/attach/GregB/2500HD truck.jpg[/img]
2002 Chevy 2500HD 4x4. 8.1L, Allison auto trans, factory tow package, about every option that was available, leather seats, weathertech mats. Straight no rust body, almost no scratches. New bed cover, with liner also. Only 78,000 miles :D Need to get step bars so the wife can get into it easier. She's actually the reason we got it :O. Wanted to be able to tow a horse trailer, to move her and her riding buddy's horses to trail ride. But I got to pick the truck :D

That's a good strong 70K-NEW-!!! rig there Greg. Nicely broken in. I would be tempted to change all fluids front to back; just to make it all new again; but it's hardly urgent. Just a thought. Mine's a 1/2 ton. I would prefer a 3/4 ton both for towing and for moving heavier loads like soil or gravel. Or tractors. Or horses. sm03

As far as what it will pull, the book says 1000lbs tongue weight, 7500 GVW trailer. If I get the equalizing hitch set right, 12,000 GVW :O Probably never pull something that big, but I would rather have to much truck, than just not enough. As far as the 94 Jeep Cherokee, as soon as I pull one more log from the woods, The sale sign goes on it :D I hate to sell it because it has its good points, but extra vehicles are harder to hide than extra tractors sm03

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
