Might just be the HO 4.3 that has the 8.5" rear? LF6 is the 180hp 4.3 and the L35 is the "HO" w/ 200 hp.

Didn't know there was a difference. Thought they were all 200.

This truck really doesn't rip as hard as I thought it would. But might be be used to driving the wagon and Silverado and forgot how slow a 4.3 really is lol.

HP ratings were all over the place during the SFI years. Mine is an LF6 96 and it's only 175 hp. At some point it jumped up to 180hp on the 2wd's
4x4's had more HP
L35's were 10 more HP than the LF6.
I "think" 2000 was the last year for the LF6.
THE ONLY way to get an 8.5 in a 2wd pick up was an L35 5spd.
LF6 5spd got 7 5/8.

LF6 was vin "X"
L35 was vin "W" though 2002. in 2003 they brought back vin "X" to indicate the updated engine with the new injectors.


Imagine how cool I'd be if I had used all that brain space for something useful instead of random S10 facts.
