Truthfully I don't know of anyone that makes them. I got lucky when I bought this truck and got a very nice rust free bed and tailgate with it. I'll be swapping them out once the rear suspension work is done.

You can get the cab corners from. LMC, DENNIS CARPENTER, JOHNS F100. I just ordered some myself.

I'll keep my eye out on Ebay and FTE. Well, I did get a '55 F100 for FREE. Hence my handle Free55. It's all in pieces though. I do need a cab corner and bed corners.

But I know what saying ibuzzard.

The stance of your truck is wicked. Nice job to you and your son.

Long ways to go...it's a roller again though. Corvette front suspension and 8.8 rear diff with coil overs on all 4 corners. I'm pretty pleased with the stance. 5.0/5spd engine mounts are next up.

Been awhile since any new progress. A few phone shots till I can get some better photos. Frame is boxed and just needs the engine mounts fabbed and it comes apart one more time for finish grinding and painting.

Bought another cab.......just too much rust in the old one. Even the back of the cab was rusted through from leaves and straw between the bed and cab. I will be adding the wrap around window from the old cab to this one.

Great work! I really like the idea of the C4 front suspension. I never thought of that concept, but it looks like it was a pretty simple adaptation with lower cost than aftermarket "MII" components. Did you fab-up your own 4-link for the rear or use aftermarket components? Do you have any build/install pics?

Again, great looking truck! Subscribed...
