1974 GMC C1500

I will add more pix in the next few days but today I took it out despite the rain and snapped a pic as it sits right now. I'll add tech specs later too...

* Editing due to Photobucket pictures failing

Real Trucks and Cars are meant to be driven in the Rain or Sun(No Snow, cause too many idiots! >:() ;)  Sure rain drops can lead to water spots, but the look is just Menacing when the drops are running off! 8)

Thanks  :) Today I took off the BFG drag radials and put on these http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?autofilter=1&part=MTT%2D6654&N=700+400206+4294921520+4294819042+115&autoview=sku



Yes this is the truck going through the conversion. I have to still readjust the valves, do the alignment, put the wheel wells back and then off comes the bed. As far as videos go as soon as the crappy weather breaks you will see some cool vids.  ;D

I just saw those tires on TRUCKS  on sunday for a truck they are building to give away they look bad as heck with the wheels they had they'll look sweet all tucked under your truck.

They are GTS but to be honest with you they fit like crap. I don't know why it's so hard for them to perfectly contour the bezel but I had a plate glass company cut me a pair a few years ago and the fit perfectly. Some guy was selling ones he made on Ebay a few years back that fit much nicer.

what do you have for a drop in this? Can we see it without the blackouts?

I flipped the axle, took out the drop shackles and put stock ones back in. I have drop spindles and coils in the front. So it's around a 5" drop.
