Re: task force pics

Got my truck back Friday after being without it since Christmas. Did a cruise in Saturday but it's been in the garage since then due to hurricane Irma. I got this off of FB, not a good pic but all I have at the moment.

Re: task force pics

Some from various sources except mine (Sage green one in my driveway) before I tore it down to the frame for the redo.

Beautiful Truck, congrats!

What size & width rims & tires are you running? I've got 17x8 Boyd's Smoothie II's for mine (not yet installed) hat I got a great deal on but I'm not convinced yet that they're really what I want. Your look IS what I want. Thanks, Dan

Re: task force pics

Hey countofmontecarlo84, what wheels are on yours? Are those American Racing?? And what did you do to set up the stance your truck has? (front & rear)

GMC never made a "Task Force" truck... that was a chevy advertising thing.

GMC called the 1955-1959 trucks "Blue Chip Money Makers". It is common to refer to them as "Blue Chip" trucks.
