Did some work on it.
« on: April 10, 2013, 06:08:35 PM »
Got the bench seat re-covered and installed, removed the woodgrain and went with the silver dash and finally dropped it down. 2.5 western chassis up front and shackles in the rear. It sits just how I like it. Now I have to save up for some wheels/tires.

Thanks. The car in front is my wife's 2013 Challinger. As far as the color I don't think it is factory. The truck used to be two tone white/light blue and was painted at some point. I need to take it and get a paint match done cause of some nicks.

That looks great.  I really like the height.  I would have thougth 2 1/2 front and rear would have been more than i want but it looks great on your truck.  Have you had any ride/alignment issues?  trouble with bottoming out?

The alignment is off but that is because new spindles have that toe-out so when I get time I'll run it up and have that done. I took it for a quick ride down the street and everything seemed fine. The headers hand down low but my shocks are somewhat new and the factory springs are in good shape so I'm not too worried about it.

Looks great!  Is that the factory color?  I'm thinking about Grabber Blue for my 76 C10.  I know that is "ford" color, but yours looks really good so I could easily chang my mind ;)
