I’ll hand the successful buyer the keys and a clear, signed South Dakota title once 100% of sale price has cleared my bank account.

One hell of an outfit. I stumbled across it when you had the camper in the bed. Super cool then- super cool now! Hope you find it a good home. Thanks for sharing with all of us the pictures and write-ups. Definitely gave me some great ideas for my own projects.


Thank you sir ... it's certainly been good to me.

Hopefully I can find a new owner that'll take full advantage of its 4wd capabilities.

Oh man this is a cool truck. I'm not much into red vehicles, but everything about it has me reconsidering. I'm sure you'll find a good buyer soon enough, good luck with the sale!
Very interested.

What kind of payload would you limit to in the bed? I'm looking at putting a slide in camper and additional hitch mounted storage on it.


Payload would be an interestin' question right now. But let's get back to that shortly.

I had the truck built up with all the goodies to haul around my custom-made Hallmark pop-up camper and take me places I could be alone. It worked extremely well. Was on 37's back then but carried a full-size spare and 2 fuel cans on the back. Truck can still be seen on Hallmark's website.


I had Alcan Springs out of Grand Junction, CO make me a custom set of rear leaf springs for $800 and it was a perfect set-up. I still have the invoice on it with all the specs and I got no doubt they could crank out another pair.

When I sold the Hallmark, the ride was obviously too rough without the weight so I went back to the standard 6" lift leaf springs for the lift kit. Air bags are still on there but I'm not sure how much weight I'd put on it.

The drivetrain will certainly handle whatever you want but I'd recommend puttin' the custom rear leaf springs back on it for a camper. And away you'll go. Never ceased to amaze me how well this rig runs off-road. Lots and lots of torque AND gears.
