It's a nice system, when maintained and working correctly, it gets bashed, unfairly i think, guys are judging a setup that's most often been neglected and abused for four decades and calling it junk, i love my power assist.

Nice truck and I agree, those bedrails look factory to me, just like the ones a buddy had on his '79 he bought new.

i like the body lift idea were i already have one sitting on a shelf from a parts truck and im needing 1/4" to get the cab to line up with the bed just the matter of milling 1/4" off the rear mounts. my main issue with most body lifts is that the cab and frame get so far apart you can see a huge gap but it does not look like that is a issue on the high boys. do you have a straight on side pic i could see how the frame looks under the body?

That sure is a nice looking truck you have there. I have those same wheels on my truck. What do you use to clean them? I use HVAC coil cleaner, and rinse very, very thoroughly. I love the look of those old highboys.
