Stunts took their toll on the GMC trucks, so several different ones were used during the show's initial run, causing some inconsistencies in episodes. For instance, the 1980 truck in the pilot had two square headlights and a light tan interior. For the rest of the series, it almost always had the quad headlight configuration of 1981 and newer models, with a dark brown interior. The truck always appeared to be a long-bed model, but a short-bed model was used in a few episodes. After huge jumps destroyed several trucks, a jump truck was custom-built, with a mid-mounted engine and a reinforced frame and axles. See more
