ROLL CALL for Chevy Medium-Duty Truck Owners and Drivers!
Hey, let's get a current roll call to see how many are on the site and active!

Let's go, let's hear from you if you've got (or had) a Chevy Medium-Duty Truck (or same GM platform vehicle).

91 GMC TopKick

I have a 91 GMC Topkick trailer puller with full sleeper-cab/side access, 5 sp and 175HP 3116. Mint 41K original miles Barn kept.
Wayne VA

Not too active on this site. Largely because I found few answers and not a lot of info.
Also too many pickup interloper responses asking what a Topkick is, works like this on a 350V8. I do visit occasionally.

Ya you are ! There are still alot of med& heavy duty GM Trucks running around here in the Mid South area. I See some everyday. the last Heavy Jimmy i had was a 81 GMC Brigadier Tandem tractor 187" wb w/ 8V71 (318) Detroit, duel exhaust w/ 2590 Case Tractor exhaust pipes for exhaust tips on the mufflers, 11R22.5 Budd wheels , 9513 roadranger tranny, 14k f/a 46k, rockwell r/a double framed on Hendrickson walking beam suspension. & a 5 ton HIAB knuckle boom crane W/ 2 Line wetkit on the back. The crane was handy pulling motors, dump & equipment clyinders,duals off the "Pan tractors " (all IH OR Case IH)

it was one hell of a good truck i miss it. the man who bought it from me in 2006 passed in 2009 . i been trying to buy it back from his 2 sons neither of them can agree on a price . I Wish i could get it back to work everyday & restore in the process!!


maybe i can find another Jimmy if i cant buy my old 81 Brigadier back

Mack


This was my Lowboy tractor for 15 yrs . it also pulled a log & dump trailer i had if my 1 of my Mack's was in the shop .
