The one in the main shot and your first set of thumbnails is a 1973-1974 model with a grille from a 1975 model.

The truck in your second set of thumbnails is a newer 1975-1976 K-15 (not K-1500 as the name changed from 1974 to 1975). Perhaps the newer one should get it's own page given it's importance.

I was wondering about that. When I started doing the second season, I knew Jim drives a new 1975 Firebird, but I wasn't sure if Rocky drives a new 1975 GMC. I wondered why Rocky's truck didn't have the three-section grille, because I was pretty sure the six-section grille wasn't used until the 1975 model.

I created a new page for it. I'll move the second season thumbnails to the new truck page when it is approved/validated by the admin./mod.

This truck is a 73 according to the style of fender emblem being used...those were ONLY available for the first year in 1973 and then 74-later used the more common font face with the staggered lettering.

I've seen some 1974 models that also had that fender emblem. Perhaps they were changed over halfway through the model year?

I've never actually seen one, but knowing GM it wouldn't surprise me if they slapped some leftover ones on certain trucks, or certain trucks were built after a date in the year where they were ID'd from the factory as a '74, etc.

In basically every piece of literature I've read however, it stated these were a one year only design. Kind of strange.

The Suburbans also had a '73-only rear tailgate emblem as well, then in 74 they got the newer style which was used all the way until 1988.

So after digging through Google image search, I'll have to retract my earlier statement...I was certain it was 73 only but there seem to be a large amount of trucks on there with this emblem listed as '74s, so I doubt those are ALL mistakenly ID'd by the owners. Probably a running change!

K25??? This is a short bed truck. K1500, like ford guy said, with a nice Hickey "Sidewinder" front mounted winch.
