Hey 62 short step, did you ever figure out the cause of your front end pull? Here are some more pics.

No not yet. I'm going to try to bring it to another alignment shop next week. Hopefully they can tell me something. The last shop I brought it to wanted to heat the axle tube to correct the camber. I got out of there fast!!

Re: Post pics. Lets see how many 60-66 4x4 are out there.

62 short step, wow I can't believe they wanted to heat the axle tube. Are you still running the original closed knuckle front axle? I'm not sure if you can still get parts for them to correct your problem. All of mine go down the road straight with a little bit of wander due to the 33'' tires but I'm sure mine also have some wear. I also have two spares but someday may move up to a newer 44. If you can't fix the problem you may have to do the same.

Here are some more.

How about a 6x6? Former electrical co-op truck, a real beast.

BobS, that is a cool looking truck. I assume that is a GMC? I think I have one of yours in post #85, I'm glad to see you post here. If you have any more pics of 60-66 4X4's Chevy or GMC keep them coming.

Gilbert,

Yep, that's my 65 Panel in #85. The 6X6 is a GMC with a 351C V-6, I'd like to swap it for a Toro-Flow some day but that truck is pretty low on the list of priorities right now.

Re: Post pics. Lets see how many 60-66 4x4 are out there.

Wow, thats a monster!!


Gilbert, I have an 87 chevy blazer corp 10 bolt on the front now. The shop said my caster is out, but he needs to fix it individually other than putting shims under the springs and axle. He said my ball joints looked great, he said why spend the money to put in the adj. ball joints? The only other way that I know how is to grind the weld off the knuckle and turn the knuckle to where it needs to be. Anyways might have to live with it, if I can.

Re: Post pics. Lets see how many 60-66 4x4 are out there.

Daffy,

Good looking truck! Is it original or converted? If original does it still have the Rockwell transfer case? A lot of the these have been converted to newer model transfer cases due to noise and expense of rebuilding and lack of available parts. What engine does it have? Any other plans for it or just drive and enjoy. Also you said that it was a '66, I noticed that it has emblems for a '65. Thanks for showing us your ride.

Re: Post pics. Lets see how many 60-66 4x4 are out there.

66 Gilbert,

It's tiltled as a '66, but is comprised of 3 different trucks (so it's not all original). It does have the original style transfer case as well as the motor (283), 4 speed tranny and 4 wheel drums. I'm seriously considering changing out the axles for newer vintage to help the braking. I'd switch out the single master cylinder for a dual power unit. Not sure how far to take this project. I have a '64 2wd and originally bought this truck for parts. I'm leaning towards leaving this truck alone, except for already mentioned safety upgrades and go after the '64 with other replacement parts. I'd hate to destroy one truck to save another. I have access to an LS-1 and 6 speed tranny that would work well in the 2wd. Anybody have any thoughts?

Re: Post pics. Lets see how many 60-66 4x4 are out there.

Daffy,

A lot or these old trucks are put together with several other trucks, but it sounds like yours is pretty much original. All three of my 4X4's still have the original axles but I have also tossed around the idea of newer model axles for my '65 for the same reason's you have mentioned as I plan on pulling a toy hauler camp trailer around with it. I also own a 2wd, its a '66 LB with a 327 and 3 on the tree. It's all original other than wheels and it is my daily driver.

Here are some more. I had to post this 10 wheel drive suburban from another forum because it is one of a kind. I also wanted to post a larger pic of Tony's awesome '66 4X4. Enjoy!!!

Hey Dino,

Your truck is looking good, can't wait to see some paint on it.

Hey Prerunner1982,

I posted some bigger pics of your dad's '65 K10. You need to get your hands on this truck and restore it back to original, so your dad can haul water in style!

Nice collection of pictures. I'm not sure if there are any more left in the States that we don't have a picture of here...
