Yep they work as long as your logged into FB.

Check out the flex in the frame between the cab and bed in the logging commercial. Square wheel wells ohh blasphemy.

Betting they blew up after they unhooked them. Smile

I bet they bent the frame in that logging one. It wasn't looking so good.

It straightened out when it accelerated (gummy bear like).  Makes one appreciate even more the products of today.

We had a 76 Chevy Cheyenne, 350, 3 on the tree standard, that I learned to drive on. No power steering, no ac, nothing, had to stand on the clutch to press it down, but it ran like a raped ape.

Rusted out quicker than a peeled apple turns brown too.

I remember when Dad bought it, we drove it home and immediately gutted out the catalytic convertor and beat out the "unleaded" only gas nozzle to accept the larger "Regular" nozzle and never ran unleaded in it other than the tank it came with.

Buddy of mine had a 72 that looked identical to the one in the 747 commercial, same paint scheme. It was a beast too.

We had a 1969 C10 with tommy lift on the tail gate. One of the best riding trucks I remember.

Had a buddy with a 1983 reg cab dually (1996'ish). 350. Actual four speed, but really only three usable forward gears. First gear was so low it would only get the truck moving like 2 mph. Was good when towing, normal driving just started in second. No AC. Gas gauge didn't work. Trying to remember if any of the gauges worked.

Lived most of it's life in Kentucky. Floor pan rusted through. Floor mats cover the holes, you didn't place your feet on the floor mats in fear of making the issue worse.

It was rickety, leaked, but would tow, if you call it that. At 60 mph doing down he highway it must have tach'd 4500 rpm the entire time. 9 to 10 mpg (hand calculated).

We called it the danger dually.

4.56 gears and no overdrive will do that!
I had a 1977 K20, 350/th400/np203 full time 4wd and 4.56 gears.

Todays powertrains are so much better.
