Nice truck.
Personally, I'd have a hard time wheeling something like that. Somehow seems sacrilegious to wheel a classic. I know, I know...for some, "classic" may be a stretch...but it's classic to me.

I'd be more inclined to restore that truck and buy a cheap beater...make the beater reliable, then wheel it. I don't like worrying about body panels, rust, and scratches.:D

thanks guys, i just tried those 39 swampers on to see how much more lift i will need to fit my 38s. as for not wheeling it, i try not to, but things dont work out all the time and it sees its fair share of mud, trails, rocks ect. i have fun with it. i dont beat it too bad, or as bad as my friends do on there trucks even though it got a few scratchs on the last whipsaw run. i have had the truck since i was 18, bought/ build it with all my hard earned money, not mommys and daddys money. as for ideas?? what do you guys think?? as for the bronco its gone sold it and bought a 91 gmc diesel on 35's. im heading up to the toy run in kelowna on may long with lots of buddys hope to see all you guys out there, dont think the 72 will be done by then but who knows i can hope. oh ya thanks kootenaycat for posting the pictures

hey thanks everyone. i got my tires on the way they should be here next week. the rims are on the way also. im ordering all new shocks 6 ranchos cause i have duels on the front. i have to pull my springs and re arc them and put in a 2" body lift ( i know i dont want to) but i have been having problems with the distribitor hitting the firewall so this should fix it. i know i could put a low pro one on there but im going to need the extra 2inch with the tires. my winch should be here on monday and then i can start fabricating my bumpers. i dont know if i will have everything done for the maylong in kelowna but im going to try. between getting my truck done and helping putting a small block in my buddys toyota on 38 swampers it going to be close. let me know what else you think i should do.

just got the call today tires and everything else should be here on the 12th. so it dosent look like its going to be done for postil, but i will just take the diesel and drink more haah. so i guess it will just have to make it on the whipsaw trip or any other ones that pop up before then. i will get pictures of it when i get everything done.

crappy....to bad its such a sweet truck, a lil' nip on the front fenders would be such an easy fix....im not a chevy guy but if i had to get one it would be a 67-72 body style....good luck with the lift.

here is a quick shot of it with the new lift rims and tires. have the old bumpers on it right (not in this pic) now as im making me new ones. ended up sanding down the wood box and putting a few coats of varnish on it. took her wheeling this weekend and she goes good, tires sunk and she kept on going till i blew a bead, she digs like a whores heart. i will get pics soom of it all complete.

shoot I forget, close to 200 I think,I did the body mounts at the same time. 4 inch susp, 2' body and I only run 33's as I need to drive it on the highway a lot, less breakage too. Remington mud brutes, like em so far.

Your truck is looking great [cheers]
