35.88 Chevy 1-ton Dually
These GMT 400s are getting very popular and they are hard to find. 1988 Chevy 1-ton Dually, rear wheel drive (2wd). Silverado package. 454/Turbo 400, 4:10 locking differential. Power windows/locks. Truck shows 173, 682 miles. I bought it in early 2019 and have put 57 miles on it. I got it to pull a trailer to replace a box van I was using for work but changed plans. I bought this off a neighbor, he was going to pull a car trailer but he got a newer truck and his plans changed too. The original engine was swapped for a 7.4 (454) from a motorhome. 37,000 miles on it,; I swapped the oil pan/dipstick for the correct pickup truck model and put a rear main seal in at the same time and the pan was clean and the rear main bearing didn't show much wear. I put a new oil pump in and changed the timing chain (double roller) while I was at it, and installed a new (not rebuilt) GM water pump. I put a Genuine GM A.I.R. pump delete idler pulley on it, the pump was there from the motorhome but wasn't hooked up so I removed it to clean things up. It goes with the truck if you want it. It has new plugs and wires, and a new serpentine belt and fresh antifreeze. It runs good, sounds good, doesn't smoke or leak. I installed new exhaust manifolds too. It has a 2.5" exhaust pipe, no cat, that splits to a flowmaster type muffler with dual pipes. It's pretty quiet. The trans is a Turbo 400 that has been rebuilt at some time. I changed the fluid put a mild Trans-Go shift kit in. It shifts tight but not harsh. It has working a/c but the compressor is getting a little noisy. The brakes work good. It has a factory hydroboost system that works good and doesn't leak. The body is in good shape, it was painted sometime and the clear is flaking off. It has an oil-can dent in front of the right rear fender, it could probably be popped out with a suction cup. It has a steel cowl induction hood on it. I have no idea where the original one is. No body rust. Cab corners look good. I was told the truck came from Tennessee. The frame is great, no rust. The bed is solid. It has diamond plate aluminum trim on it. This was a fully loaded truck when new, it has the 10,000 lb. rear spring/Camper Special package. It was set up for dual batteries, has the tray and solenoid but the cables have been removed at some point, wouldn't be hard to re-fit. It has a gooseneck ball in the bed. Sliding rear window. Trailer brake controller, no idea if it works, I never got that far. Power windows and locks work. Interior fair, the seat is worn but not ripped. The carpet is worn and dirty, I would have eventually changed it. It has a set of simulators on it. The rear tires are good, the fronts so-so. It has a spare, and I have a couple of extra bare wheels for it. It's a decent truck that pulls good. Needs some odds and ends The tilt steering column is loose, I will try to get around to fixing it the next few days. This is a common problem. The HVAC blend door actuator is noisy, when you turn the ignition on/off you can hear it cycle. This is another easy fix. The idle speed fluctuates, I got a new IAC motor for it but haven't put it on yet. It might be a vacuum leak under the TBI, I have new gaskets for that too. I'll try to get to this stuff the next few days. I took pics as is, the truck needs a good cleaning. $4990
