Haven't done what you are thinking about doing, but be aware that the truck
will be less stable & tend to lean more when you turn corners. This can be
countered by installing the rear shocks with the tops inclined inward &
installing a rear sway bar.

Dan,

There are several suppliers out there. Two I know of are Checkmate
(1-800-944-9319). The make flush covers that fit inside the flare of the
bed. The other is Gaylords (WWW.Gaylordslids.com). I believe theirs are
flush covers that would got from edge to edge.

Another source is Trucking magazine. They have a bunch of suppliers
advertised.

No prob. If you do find a better source, I would like to know as I have 2 other trucks that may be candidates. I tried several sources in Hemmings myself and came up empty. Good Luck.

I just had a bummer of an experience. I bought 6 16" wheels for my 49 F-5 and just discovered tonight the drums are too big by 1/2". They are the big 5-bolt pattern budd wheels if anyone needs my 16" or knows where i can get any size from 17" up to 22.5". I will change rear-end gears to get the right road speed. I was going to try to make it lower by using the 16's, but it would also look cool short and high I think, depending on what I can find. I need to eliminate the suicide rims!! Any help is well appreciated.

Thanks,

Ray C

Hi list. As you see Dan's post below looking for a supplier of a tonnage
cover for a 53. I'd like to add to this request. Does anyone know of a
source for fiberglass tonnage cover for a 52? Thanks!
