From the time I first gazed at a NAPCO-converted '57 GMC short box, V-8 powered pickup to our last two Suburban K2500 beam front axle models, vintage G.M. beam front axle K-trucks have held my attention...I recall test driving an early press fleet '88 Chevrolet Silverado (GMC Sierra) 4WD IFS pickup in its first release to the media in the spring of 1987—wondering, "What is G.M. thinking here!"
G.M. hit stride in the 'sixties and 'seventies, setting a benchmark for 4x4 trucks. Our 1973 Chevrolet K10 short bed with a 350 V-8 and 465 Muncie truck box was among the best vehicles we've ever owned. Even our Dodge Ram 3500 was purchased largely for its beam front axle—a design that G.M. trucks taught everyone to value.
I know what works for G.M. beam axle trucks...Do you have questions? Want to share what today's "built" G.M. beam axle truck is all about? Join the forums and get the conversation going!
