    I just got back from looking at a 97 GMC 3/4 ton extended cab 4*4 fully loaded pickup and was wondering what everbody thought of this truck. I was raised strictly in a ford family but this looks like a really nice truck.Would this truck handle a 20ft enclosed trailer all right,it has the 350 in it.I'm open to all comments thanks in advance,Bobby.

    I've got the same truck in 2WD,i'm happy with it.Some people would rather have the 454,but this truck does just fine for me hauling 2 ztr's + all the other equip.

    It will probably do just fine. Check the rear axle ratio. 3.73 or 4.10 is OK. If it has an automatic, get a cooler for it and a temp gauge so you can keep an eye on it.
