Really nice truck, Koop. Here's a bit less lowering like Chris suggested:



If you are keeping the solid axle I think you'll like the ride better here than in the proverbial weeds. I'm all for "to each his own" but my worthless opinion of going to extremes on a mild custom is unsettling. Put another way, it is overdone these days and, frankly, looks good on a certain few rides.

I like the individuality that your scallops create. Very handsome truck.

Respectfully, himmelberg

That paint scheme looks pretty cool. I second that vote on not slamming it to the ground. Where did you buy your white walls?

Coker tire. They're bias-ply 7.00-16 B.F. Goodrich Silvertowns.

Thanks.

I am looking to keep the solid axle, because I want my truck to look like a traditional custom inside & out, top to bottom. The only exception, of course, being the CD player due to lack of a period-friendly model. I want to go as low as possible while maintaining driveability on a daily basis, so until I can afford bags, it's gonna stay a little bit off the ground.
