    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.

    Welcome to the site. Glad to hear you plan to keep the truck for a while. Any specific plans for what you might want to do to it over the next few years? once you fix the leaks and tranny issues obviously. Good to have you here.
