Re: 1985 4X4 single cab dually...

I love everything about it and would buy it to work out of every day. It's a shame Alcoa ditched those wheels. They sure look great on that truck. It appears to be in great shape and with such low miles on an Arizona body, how could you go wrong? Price is high, but so are all square bodies and everything made before them. I'd give $10k and be a happy camper.

I like it but the 8 inch lift is a bit much plus it's a 350 not a 454.

Nice but not that nice. Prolly has 4.56s being ex military, maybe 4.88s, which it would need with a 350!!

Re: 1985 4X4 single cab dually...

I drove a '70 C/30 with 11' service body with a 350/TH400/4.10s and it did all I needed it to do. 350 did just fine with the side bins full of tools, bed loaded with vinyl siding above the top of the bed, generator, and ladders/pump jack poles/walkboards filling the 15' pipe rack. So, I speak from experience when I say that truck would do just fine with the highly respected and reliable 350 without creeper rear gears. That's a really nice truck and I'm used to changing a few things on trucks to suit me. I think the 8" lift is too much. But that's no big deal for use 4wd guys, right?

What makes it an ex-military truck? If it was wouldn't it have a 6.2 diesel in it with a 400turbo and 208? And did the military trucks have cab lights on the roof? That truck is a nice one for sure and it has a 205 transfer case not a 208

Post was deleted. I guess the owner decided there was too much wrong with it to sell
