    I'm running six bolt wheels so the spider caps are out. I plan on a 235/T5 upgrade, but other than that I really like the idea of a mildly rodded stock truck. Thats actually why i ditched my original plans for whitewalls and trim rings. In 53 I'm fairly certain WWW's on a truck would have been completely out of place. (so would lowered, but we wont tell)

    I'm getting rid of the slots for sure. I may take some heat on this, but I've never liked them.

    Saw the first picture and thought it was great, but scrolling down the 2nd pic really hit me! It looks perfect!

    Looks great either way....oddly enough, I LOVE the first pic, though! I think it looks great sitting like a truck.
    Cool either way...

    Honestly, A tad too low for true function. It looks absolutely killer, looks fantastic. Unfortunately looks and function are a hard tonic. That's why I just ordered a new set of 2" taller spindles. Way cheaper than putting a new exhaust on it every 30 feet. A minimum of 4" to the bottom of anything up front is what I have stubbornly found to be a minimum.
    But yeah aside from that it looks tight.
     
  17. You Asked..I think it sucks.Maybe if you chopped the top also to kinda balance it out..But then IMHO it would still suck.

    Not that I cant take others opinions, but I do prefer them constructive. Why do you feel that it sucks?

    Harsh....I find that if I put a soothing Tucks pad in there that the discomfort usually goes away and I can sit without pain.:D

    I hear ya on the too low thing. I had a 71 c10 that the front bumper would touch a tomato juice can on its side. Looked amazing. Drove like crap. I'm putting a 4" drop axle on it and we'll see where that puts me. May pull a few springs, but I want it functional. I plan to get it to the same height as most compact cars on the road today. They get by so it should too at that height. I do want the slightest amount of rake like in the chop.

    Love the look in the second photo. The idea of a 6 with a T-5 is great too.

    Man..... I was just messin around in photoshop when I put this together. But every time I look at it I get more and more excited about this truck. I just love the stock but lowered look. I always said I thought these trucks were "born" perfect. Now I'm sure of it.
