i have seen spacers that convert 6 lug to 8 lug and out a bit for the truckwheels but to convert it to 1 ton and truckwheel you only need the bottom (i believe it was) a arm it has a bigger balljoint for the spindle that will hook up to the 1 ton or 3/4 ton spindle
the diskbrake and hub on a 3/4 or a single wheel is two piece the truckstyle is one piece it will take the wheelbearings of any 1 or 3/4 spindle (at least if you get the general production year right they did changed to metric somewhere in there ) , not sure if the springs are heavier , the antirollbar is though
3/4 stuff from a van is the same and might be eazier to find
chucks chevy pages has some of info on
ive allso seen one where they used steel militairy hummer wheels in the front wish looked good as whell and doesnt need the truck style disk/hub setup

It's Dodge Viper blue, i can get you the paint code if you like. As far as the picture on the tailgate I'll get a picture of it up in a couple of days, we have alot of snow on the ground around here and my baby is locked up and covered up tight!

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds

Hey camshaftgsxt, what year truck is that? Also, you have a lot of loose wires on the firewall. What do they go to? Do you have another fuse panel there? Just wondering.

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds

My '86 C-10 shortly after purchasing it.

Don't know why my computer uploaded the pics sideways, they aren't stored like that.
