  3. I hate those wheels on the factory trucks. Something about plastic rims I just don't like. Sure they look shiny. But your just looking at plastic

    Yeah... all thats traditional.... Other than your wheels:rolleyes:



    Simple fact is this is a traditional site... Yeah your not the only one here with non traditional, Subframes and stuff... But by the description of this site... Posts about that truck with those wheels and talks of newer frames do not belong...

    I've often wondered if one of these truck bodies would fit in a Dakota 4X4 frame? I've got a '97 Dakota that's starting to show it's age and I love the way it rides and drives and I think it would be a great combination of style meets function. Just so nobody gets the wrong idea, I'm not going to be attempting this conversion. It's just one of those things that I have thought about.

    Bro…let me clue you in: The wheels on your truck, and by extension, your truck, suck.

    The use of 20” wheels on classic vehicles is something that will never look correct. I don’t care if Foose cannot stop doing it. He should know better. To anyone over the age of 30, this look will never be acceptable.

    When people are young, or new to something, they naturally lack experience. They may lack historical perspective. They don’t know the history of a subject, and are influenced by what is happening now. And I was guilty of this when I was younger too. I tended to be unduly influenced by ‘things that I saw’. Things that were new, or trendy, seemed fresh and cool. Ten years later, I saw just how wrong I was. But I did develop, and mature, and I can now appreciate why certain things are just inherently correct, and why others are not.

    Putting contemporary (20”) wheels on a vehicle some 80 years old is just going to look funny. And when I say funny, I mean bad. LMAO.

    Heres a little mental exercise that may illustrate my point better…lets say you have the same truck, and you decided to put some giant wooden wagon wheels on it. Like the ones on horse drawn carriages from 80 years in the opposite direction, the mid 1800s. Do you think this would look good? Do you think this would not draw derision? Of course not, this would look stupid, and anyone looking at it would most certainly agree. LMAO.

    Look, I don’t know you, youre probably a nice person, and you think youre making your truck look cool, and anyway who gets harmed, right? I mean you no personal ill will, but unfortunately you come on here doing something dumb, you get lambasted for it, you’re offended, and then you throw it off like you don’t care, and we’re all stupid for not liking it. Go ahead, LYAO.

    All Im saying is, if you didn’t care what others think, you wouldn’t immediately get defensive. By merely posting, you care what others think; and they have told you. Instead of typing out a BS reply, you might take some time to reflect and think about how others are really trying to help you. And find some suitable wheels.

    I'm with you dude. build "your" ride the way YOU please. I didn't see where any of these critics were financing your ride, so take a back seat and enjoy the ride. If you don't enjoy the view ,get out.

    This thread is headed for closed unless we turn it around, Good Job on getting the truck running and getting some miles on it in original condition, wheels-just consider these as temporary rollers with good tread, run the tread off this summer, get some miles on the truck and figure what you want to change this winter

    Yep I love them old trucks. Keep plugging away, that's a great looking truck. Cool to see someone fixing and driving your car instead of talking about it.
