The venerable Warn 8274 winch debuted just a couple of years after this truck was built and could be considered a classic in its own right. The old-school winch with the accompanying mount and good ol’ KC Daylighters harken back to simpler times. Four Wheeler tested a ’72 Chevy K20, which was essentially the same truck as this, and Editor Bill Sanders said the off-road performances was “…nothing short of a Sherman tank.” In a pre-gas crunch world and 36-cent-per-gallon gas, 7.8-9.8 mpg in all testing venues barely elicited a comment. The Four Wheeler test truck was upfitted with Uniroyal 10x16.5 off-road tires, which cost $400 for the set of five.
