I haven't looked that close at them, I thought they were all the same. I need the middle one though.

The fronts are usually "beefier" than the middle and the rear. The middle and rear are the same. However, I believe that starting in 51, they were all the same.

I have what you need. Send me an email at modelking2000 at hotmail dot com.

Running boards from a Panel or cab only trucks are different than on a truck, in case you wanted to know. Running board brackets on a truck are shorter in length than on a Panel truck. See picture below. Easy way to remember is short bracket - long board (truck) and long bracket - short board (Panel truck and cab only trucks). Panel and cab only truck running boards are approximately 18" long, while regular truck are approximately 16.5" long.

Thanks folks for all your info/input. I got the answer I needed and was able to locate 5 wheels and they are resting comfortable in my garage. They seem to be enjoying thier new home and I could have sworn I saw a tear on one of them that was facing the truck.

"Newbie" is an understatement. Not only do I not know too much about my truck, but I know NOTHING about forums. I'm not even sure I'm typing in the right box right now.

So, I have my granddaddy's '54 F100. I'm trying to go back stock with wheels/tires and cannot find any 16x4.5 inside nubs anywhere!

jmadsen : I sent you a message (I think) but got no reply. I'm sorry if my forum etiquette is off, I don't know the rules. I'm just a frustrated guy trying to find some dang wheels.

Furthermore, I know you guys want pictures. As soon as I figure out how to get them here from my phone, I'll do so.

First of all, BusNut, welcome to FTE. Personally, I think it's great that you're restoring your granddaddy's truck.

There aren't a lot of rules to limit you here, just some minor frustrations with posting pictures and things like that. That process is explained in the first post "Read First: 48/60 Forum Tips, Tricks, How To's! " And everyone here wants to see pics of your truck.

You'll probably want to start a new thread for your truck. From this page,

hit the New Thread button on the top left.

Can't wait to learn more about your truck.

You've come to the right place to ask your questions. There are plenty of folks on this site with worlds of knowledge about anything to do with your truck. I don't know about the wheels you want, but someone here does.

Not a surveyor. I'm in the auto collision insurance business and we use it in our photos propped up against the damage on a vehicle to measure the height of the damage. It's really visible in photos due to the print.

oh yeah, i remember reading that at some point. I forget so much stuff...
well in land survey we use a very similar measuring tape for the same reason. It can be seen from a longer distance. Probably made by Keson ? the case looks exactly the same.

Lol, one more profession to add to the list who use inches, architects, hookers, and now auto insurance people! Jk
I have a pocket rod too (in tenths hundreths) but only use it on special occaisions, I have 2 grade rods in the truck, one of them is used only to measure down for sewer flowlines (we call it the ***** stick).



Busnut, I'm not sure if I got your message, my home computer is broken so unless I'm at work (and I got busy all of a sudden) I don't think I've seen it? Was it a pm? I've just been on here with my crappy phone.


Try to email me at jfmadsen at yahoo.com at =@

LOL... I haven't seen a pocket rod in a long time... Since we went to robotic and stopped working with someone, since we don't have to use a site and rod... Arial heigth rod is the last time I had to measure but that's a one man job...
