Love it......thought about using ones from a 73-87 myself. Just might have to be more serious about it now.

Re: How about some pics of 73-91 crew cabs

Had to pick up a free car.. Lifted truck comes in handy for rigging a last minute hitch for a borrowed goose neck..

I couldn't believe how well it worked and how perfectly level the trailer was. I have a two piece hitch that's adjustable for height, so I flipped it upside down and flipped the ball. It didn't make for very good weight distribution, but it worked fine for a light car..

It doesn't have to.

No, but...

...since you do still plan on pulling with it, I would recommend some helper bags for the rear. There is nothing cooler than a slammed dually proudly showing the world that it can still do the deed!!

Re: How about some pics of 73-91 crew cabs

I am planning on leaving it 3/4 ton, 2 wheel drive. TBI 350, 700r4. Aside from swapping all the sheet metal and motor/trans from the suburban the only major mod. is shorting the frame for short wide bed.
