Thinking about a 1987 1ton 4x4 with a 6.2 and a 4 spd?
I saw a local ad and was wondering about a 1987 GMC 1 ton 4x4 with an SM 465 and the 6.2l diesel. I know nothing about the 6.2, but I don't want a hard core pulling rig, I was looking to throw a camper in the back and use it for some backroad camping with my sons. Here's the info from the ad:
"1987 chevy silverado k30
sm465 standard trans behind a 6.2l Detroit diesel
10 inch lift on 38.5in swampers
Has a dana 60 king pin in the front and a 14bolt with a locker in the rear with 4:10's
trucks got 240xxkm (150,00 miles)and runs good, fresh oil change rotella shell, fresh transmission oil as well,cd player, gauges work, surprisingly good on fuel with the diesel/standard
wicked mudder truck just bought another truck don't need 2"
Any thing I should look out for when buying a truck like this? Any advice? I thought it was strange to see that there is a Dana 60 front end with a King Pin, I didn't think GMs had king pins in 1987, only Fords. Let me know what you think.
