i have a question. how do u change the rear tires?
That's a little bit of a project but not the worst. I have to put the frame up on jack stands and unbolt the rear spring perch then lower the rear out until the tires clear.

matt stunt -

so you just moved the leaf
springs under the axle, and
thats it ? anything you had
to do to the driveshaft, or
anything else to lower the
bed that way ?

Yeah that's it. Just relocate the axle perches to the bottom of the axle so the top of the leafs can ride below the axle. How much it will drop your truck will vary and Depends how thick your actual leaf springs are. Other than that you may have to move the brake lines and my driveshaft is fine without any modifying.:thumbsup:

The KM2's on the truck are real quiet on the street and judging by your signature and picture you plow. these tires even big and wide cut snow like no ones business. I don't like big mud tires either but these are an exception.

I bet if you throw a 12 valve in that 66, you might very well be the only one around. What a unique combo that would make. It is great like it is. Just an idea in case you get to feeling creative :)

the piece of rubber that goes between the bed and bed mount is gone...i really need to replace it i guess.

i really don't work on some of the old stuff right now with the cummins fever and tryin to keep up with farm chores + 40 hrs a week job.
