Automobiles used by Johnny

  • 1994-2002 Chevrolet 3500 Tow Truck
  • Episode: "Left Behind"
  • Color: White
  • License plate: 41G NCJ (Iowa)
  • Background: The phone number on the truck reads (515) 555-HELP. The side of the tow truck indicates it has a 10,000 GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating); that can be seen just before Kate gets into the truck after her car is attached to the truck tow. The exact model of the cab is hard to determine; whether it’s a Silverado, Express, C/K, etc. The fact that it has a heavy-duty drivetrain and suspension indicates that it’s a 3500, which is common for tow trucks. It has a heavy-duty drivetrain because there are two wheels on each side of the rear axle (four total). The towing package is also hard to determine; it could be Jerr-Dan, Century, or another brand. The 1988 and 1989 models usually came with sealed-beam headlamps, which this tow truck does not have. 1990 thru 1993 had a slightly different grill design. The grill and the hood on this tow truck are similar to the Chevrolet trucks built from 1994 to 1999. Most 2000 thru 2002 models had a more rounded design in both of those areas, however some models retained the same body style as the 1994 thru 1999 models, so there is also a slight chance that the tow truck is a 2000 to 2002. 2003 models and newer have a more aggressive styling than this vehicle has.
