    I just wanted to say hi.

    I'm 19 and currently in college. I have a 1989 Gmc K1500 that I got for my 17th birthday. It used to be my dads truck then he sort of sold it to his friend a few years before I got. They never completed the sale and after my dad passed away my step mom got the truck back and then eventually I got. Now to the truck, it has one of the more uncommon part schemes that I have seen. It also has had the engine replaced at one point in time and currently it hates trannys lol. So far I have had two god bad on me and one front seal go bad. i will admit that it is mostly my fault that they broke do to oils fluid leaks that I did fix right away. I just would add more fluid every once in awhile. Also it is built like a work truck. It has the rubber floor which I like and it has heavy duty suspension and the 14 bolt rearend. overall I love the truck and plan on never selling it.
