    All the images you could ever want to admire my stance can be located here: 1969 Ford F100 - Imgur

    Note that with the rear wheel tucked in as such, to remove/install the rear wheel(s) the frame needs to be on jack stands to allow the axle to drop. Otherwise, the fender is in your way.

    Also note that you will inevitably have a bit of front wheel camber, but the low ride height and the front camber significantly aids cornering. I promise you that this thing corners like a car. I can't wait to see what it's like when I add sway bars.

    I forgot to mention that the rims have about a 4" backspacing. I haven't measured with the tires off but I think it's 3 7/8" front and 4 1/8" rear.

    The truck is lowered three inches in the front with drop beams and four inches in the rear with flip shackles, but you'll need to notch the rear frame. Not doing so leaves you with hardly more than 1" of travel between the axle and the frame bumpers. I would suggest you go to an auto wrecker and pull the front clip out of a Crown Victoria and graft that onto your truck. There are many posts about this for you to research. It is overall better. The CV clip can be purchased for $500. Drop beams can be purchased for $700. More for less. You do the math. Like I said, I suggest the CV clip.

    Thanks. They're just moon rims. Are you asking for sizes?
