Here's my A with the sled. It's wrecked now, but looked good with the sled.

Yeah, I painted two trucks to match the sled. Here's some more of my stuff. The lavender KW is my wife's. She drives local around here, and sometimes up the east coast. The cabover came from Georgia. I bought it on Ebay. It was rough when we got it, but was all original. We do all our own work...engines, trans, tires, frame work, body work, and paint.

Not trying to start any argument, but I didnt think KW made a K100 with square head lights in 82 or a set back axle.

Good looking trucks, I like the A model, thats my kinda truck.

You're right. They went to square in 84. The man I bought it from put the corner pieces on it with the square lights. (What an idiot)!! I set the axle back. I used to run it up the east coast. It almost beat my guts out. So, I used T-600 front springs, and lengthened it from 180" to 265" wheelbase. Rides like a car now.

Yep, I figured it was done for ride, I like the look of the set forwards, but that setback is the way to go if your going to try and drive one all the time.

I drove it and my A model from here to Jersey and NYC for over 3 years. The COE gets as many looks as the A does...or did. I wrecked it last June. A lady and her daughter ran a red light in front of me and I hit them (in a PT Cruiser) directly in the passenger door running 55 mph. The mom died on impact, and the daughter gat banged up pretty bad. Naturally they had the NC state minimum limits on insurance. I never got a dime...to this day. So, I parked it and found an 03 W900 which I drive now. I'll post some pics of it, too. It's an MBN I converted to 6NZ via ECM and camshaft.

Thats bad luck on the wreck, and I know the cabovers are becoming more popular as the years move on, Im thinking about buying another one.
