The Isuzu N-Series are a range of light/medium duty cabover trucks. They gained popularity in urban areas because of their shorter wheelbase and greater maneuverability. General Motors, having a controlling share of Isuzu, produces its own models of the N-Series and distributes them under its Chevrolet and GMC brands. I have a GMC version.

The N-Series is divided into the NPR, NRR, and NQR models. The NPR is available with GM's 6.0 liter Vortec gas V8 engine, a rarity in the market. NPR and NQR models are also available in a crew cab configuration with seating for seven. The N-Series models are best described by their Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings ranging from 12,000 - 19,500 lbs.

Jeff, if you're not too busy on the Friday the 29th, we'll be removing the diesel engine from my NPR. It's down the hill at my office location.
