    Nice looking truck and camper. Make it the way you want and like everyone else said, "Drive the hell out of it!"

    So far, I don't think it needs much! Just a few minor things!

    Nice truck! I wouldn't change a thing.
     
  13. I think these are over-looked but really cool. I like them low, but at a minimum you need to "C" the frame.

    Since you want to tow I think I would keep the rear as is, put a pair of Posies de-arched springs on the front, big and littles (but not too little) and call it done.

    If you're in hilly region you might want to consider a disc conversion on the front, and a dual master cylinder to get a little more stopping power and safety.

    Congrats

    Bigs and Littles don't belong on anything after 1948, especially a truck.

    7347094878_d9ddea448c_z.jpg mastercylinder2.jpg 60newbeddone.jpg These are good usable trucks. Mine has a 460, C6, A/C, new wood and stainless, and of course big tires on the back so it will look right and haul a load.
