Larry Wittman's 1978 K20 Truck
I acquired the truck in 1996 while still living in my native state of Colorado. The first upgrades I made was to replace the NP203 transfer case with a NP205 and replace the rear axle with a 14 bolt full-floater. Next, I replaced the V-belt accessory drive system with an updated serpentine belt system from a 1995 C/K 5.7L. This allowed my to utilize a compact high amperage alternator and a more efficient air conditioning compressor fitted with R-134A. After moving to the rust belt (Michigan), I had gray Rhino Lining bed lining sprayed below the body side molding and rear bumper. Just recently a friend and I sprayed a fresh coat of Quasar blue basecoat/clearcoat. The truck turns a lot of heads in the Detroit suburbs. Next on the list of upgrades to come, is fuel injection and a New Venture 4500 five-speed. I can't wait to move back to the dry and saltless climent of Southern Colorado to enjoy driving this truck everyday - year around.
