I've heard that the larger fender openings didn't occur until the F350
and larger trucks, so I just went out and measured the wheel openings on
Grover's front fenders. At the lower edge (Where I figured I could get a
reliable measurement) the wheel opening is 34.5" wide. I measured just
at the point the fender starts to curve under. Now, one of you F100 guys
needs to go out and measure the fenders on your '53 - '56 and post your
results!
This will be valuable information to me, because Grover's right front
fender has seen far better days, and I don't want to buy the wrong
fender!

Don,

Could be Grover has F-100 fenders on him and didn't want to tell. Since I'm one
of the guys who said the fenders were different, I measured my F-100's. They're
the same as yours. ??? So, you could be right, the larger ones not starting
until the F-350.

My bed replacement for my 1958 is going to be a 1-ton box. We feel that the box
height on the larger box allows the lines to line-up better with the 57-60 cab
lines. The extra inches on the inside of the box sides have allowed me to pack
295/50s into the rear fender-well. We took the box sides off and narrowed the
box to the F100 width - shortening the rear pan and the front of the box
accordingly. I'm making my box wood calculations based upon a 49" box width,
having 7 boards, the two outside boards are going to be approximately 2-3 inches
wider than the other 5. We're keeping some of the extra length to the rear of
the fenders, but we shortened up the front 16". This disallows any use of
commercial "bed-wood" kits, so we went with the low-budget
"what-have-we-got-on-the-property?" method. We decided to go with some of my
uncle's prized tamarack trees as the donors. It should turn out pretty nice.
