Re: my 69

Looks like you've already notched the frame so bagging would'nt be all that difficult. How many inches off stock height is it now, the reason I ask, is I want my tires to ride about where yours do in comparison to the fenders, but I see that the notch looks necessary for that ride height. I am planning on 29" tires. How big are the one on your truck now?

I'm not real sure i"l get some measurements . the back is a 4 in spring and a two in block. the front is ece spindles and 1 coil cut off the big block springs and the one on the pass side is sagging a little bit the front tires are 235-70 15 the rr are 235-75-15. I really cant find any rims that i like. wheel vintiqes has a 17in rally wheel but there 300$ ea. do you have to have 18s or 20s to look descent when the truck is lowered. I have not seen any low trucks like mine with 15in wheels . is there reason. whats your guys input on this

I am going to run 16" wheels on mine from stockton wheel. Follow this link to the series 20 wheel with the Ennis cap then I am going to mount 29" tires with 4" white walls to give it that vintage look:ohyes: The wheels and caps might end up costing that much anyway the caps are $125 alone. But they look sweet.
