The VIN 1GDKC34K5PJ510311 decodes as:

US-built, GMC incomplete (cab & chassis), 14001-16000 lb GVWR range, 2WD, "1 ton" (as all 3500HD's are classified), regular 2 door cab, 5.7 TBI engine, 1993 year model, built in Janesville WI plant (plant for all HD's until the later years.)

Nice to see proof of a factory-original small block HD; they've got to be the absolute minority of trucks out there.

You also know if it's got a busted leaf spring, that poor thing was rode about as hard as you can ride one!  Only 101K miles?  Musta been rough ones...

Not sure which VIN check you went through but showing 16" tires definitely an error on the information that site has.  If the listing comes back with XTN and YTN that's front and rear tires as load range F 225/70/19.5 radial

Here's something else interesting, didn't realize a non-A/C truck would come with the bypass pulley as original, but I guess it's a lot less expensive and easier than having a whole different accessory bracket setup for those trucks.  No holes in the firewall for the evaporator core lines.

I used the link below:  "Decode this VIN Decoder" seems like it's not working right now.  Thanks for clearing that up. The truck looks like it has a HWY crash water tank bumper frame on the back
