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 photo and story come to us from member Frankie Rider.

1993 Chevrolet K2500 HD Silverado
January 2003

Some info on the truck:

  • 1993 Chevrolet K2500 HD Silverado Pickup
  • Original Owner
  • 176,200 miles at present
  • 6.5L TD 200-hp engine (according to VC decal)
  • 4L80-E Automatic Overdrive Transmission
  • All Silverado options, except for sliding rear window
  • Lock-Right rear differential installed
  • Banks Power Pack modification kit installed

This truck has been relatively trouble-free since new considering how much it is driven. I've not had to do any major engine work to it yet. For the past year or so, I've had a lot of problems with the lift pumps and oil pressure units going out every four to six weeks. Right now I am on a "good set" of them, I guess. No trouble of late.
