This SUV is a bit of a hybrid. No, not like a Prius. This truck has got the stout heart of an '88 K5 with a '77 front clip adding a nice look to the front end and a few sweet late model upgrades to the interior courtesy of a late model Tahoe. You will look good and be comfortable on your way to places and adventures that few other vehicles would be able to get you to. Check it out.
Whether you are plowing through downtown traffic on your way to work or plowing through deep creeks on your way to a hunting camp, you will be looking good on your way there. The Blue and Gray two-tone paint has just recently been applied and plenty of prep was done before a drop of it was sprayed on. The panels and the hardtop all line up nicely and it's got a nice shine to it. There is plenty of chrome on that '77 front end with the black grill surrounded by it and a fresh bumper underlining it. There is a bowtie ornament and gray accent stripes running back along each side of the hood. From the side you can't help but notice the lift and the serious wheels and tires this truck rides on. Taking the top off is fun for open air motoring or hauling big piles of people down the lake or bonfire and there is a trailer hitch for pulling any kind of toys you have down there with you.
Open the door, climb up inside, and you will find a nicely updated interior that is comfortable and hi-tech. The door panel is neat and clean and classic K5 with power window and lock switches at your fingertips. The leather seats, however, were swiped from a late model Tahoe. They are power operated, they look good, and they are super comfortable. A two-spoke steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column with cruise control and the shifter for the automatic transmission. The dash behind it is super clean in brushed metal with the chrome trimmed stock gauges clearly visible. The ventilation controls in the center include those for air conditioning to keep you cool on those hot summer days. To the right of those is a tech upgrade bound to please. The new head unit for the FM/CD/Bluetooth and iPod compatible stereo also includes Nav. Your back-seat passengers will also enjoy a comfortable ride, because why would you just borrow the front seats from the Tahoe?
Open the hood and you will find a 350 cubic inch, throttle body injected motor nestled down in a neat and clean engine bay. These engines are tried and true, reliable and powerful. It is completely stock with signs of good regular maintenance that includes fresh belts and hoses as well as ignition components and a newer battery. Exhaust flows out through Dual Flowmaster mufflers and gives this truck a nice sound while power flows back through a 4-speed automatic transmission and then the 4WD transfer case to solid axles both front and rear. Leaf springs provide some lift to the suspension and heavy-duty shocks all around provide good control with dual shocks on each side sharing the work load on the front. Power front disc brakes provide good stopping power and the rubber meets the road, (or the snow or mud), through Nitto 355/60/20s all around mounted on those great looking chrome Moto rims.
Get where you're going in style. Whether that's across town or across the mountain. Come on down and check out this very well-done truck with its blend of updates and backdates that all add up to one sweet ride.
