Forest Service Trucks

Hey all, here is the Ď69 forest service c20 i picked up a few months ago. Stock 292 with the same old granny 4speed.

I was wondering if anyone had any pics of their forest service rigs because I would love to see them, as well as any photos of these things out on the job back in the day?

Nice truck. It looks like it was taken care of pretty good.

Re: Forest Service Trucks

I really like your truck! It's funny you should start this thread. If I could go out to the shop and start building a truck today it would be a US Forest Service K/20. I've been thinking on it a while. I wanted a municipal type of a build and these trucks rose to the top as giving great visual memories of my more adventurous younger days. I mainly remember the ones at Cape Hatteras National Seashore back when I was all about surfing. You didn't see a lot of 4wds in the '70s like you do these days. But there you did because surf casting is a big deal. The rigs you'd see set up for that were cool as well. But the Dept of Interior ran those green 4wd trucks with wide tires mounted on black steel wheels. So cool!

I don't have any pictures, other than in my head. But here are some USFS trucks of other brands

Re: Forest Service Trucks

Thanks for the reply special K,

Mine came from up in washington. I live in oregon so itís local enough for me. Part of me wants ti restore it, the old man who sold it to me still has all the CB antennas and lights. I just donít know if I should turn my daily back into a USFS truck. Thanks for the pictures!

Re: Forest Service Trucks

Funny thing when I saw this pic, the Forest Service knows a good burger!

The "Legendary" Walker Burger in Walker Ca. on the Eastern Slope of the Sierra's right on Hwy 395, it's always crowded with Fly Fisherman, Tourist/Travelers, Motorcyclist, Back Country Off Roaders etc, and it never disappoints. Closed in the winter months.
