    Adding to the 'What rear axle fits' I used a Camaro rear end on mine, came with a Posi and 'Starship' gears (2.73) but with your granny 4 speed should work fine. As for the adding an IFS I followed LuxBlu's post and ended up with this...

    This is the best stance I can get with out IFS or a drop axle. The new tires should help the front some.

    Tires and wheels are on now, still need to drop it a couple more inches.

    I think it sits great as is.
    Cool truck.

    Whitewalls and steel wheels made a world of difference.

    Yea, it looks fine, I just think an inch or so more would be a huge difference

  17. I have never been a fan of scallops - until now. You've got a great eye for detail. The scallops draw attention to the body's sculpture. I can't wait to see what you're up to next.

    Yes that is what I am going for but probably won't do it without a drop axle

    Wow, thanks a bunch! I was looking for subtle and I think I got it. Just trying to figure what color to outline them in? Again don't want to over power the look.
