Readers' Rigs

The Readers' Rigs page illustrates some of diesel pickup trucks and SUV's members of The Diesel Page own or drive. This month's photos and story come to us from member Chad Morris.

1984 6.5L Chevrolet K10
August 2004

Some info on the truck:


With winter tires and the front locker, it can cut through snow deep enough to have transfer case dragging. I have a custom driveshaft of sorts. I used a 1-ton Ford shaft cut down slightly to fit the GM differential. Ford apparently used the same U-joint series as this Chevy.



I've had the truck for about five years, and have done just about everything you can do to a truck like this. I sometimes wonder why I put all that money into an old pickup, but the costs of repairing a newer truck when out of warranty can keep some people out of the market. Don't get me wrong, I think the new trucks are great, but out of warranty repairs can be expensive. You can email me with any questions you might have about this truck at
