Man, that thing looks tough, good job. Same look I'm going for with my '79 F350, I have the same wheels. Few questions:

What size are the aluminum slot wheels?

How do you like the TSL's? Are they radials? How do they ride on the road?

Nice stance to the truck, does the skyjacker kit utilize your 4" blocks in the rear or just eliminate them all together?

if it is all spring it should eliminate the block and mount
to the axle like a normal spring mounts.

i would like to know the rim size as well.

The tires are the original bias ply tsl the ride is interesting to say the least. The wheels are 16.5x8.75 I kept the stock rear blocks when I installed the lift springs.

Cool, thanks for the info. I'm with you on the bias tires, I'm running bias-ply 36" Goodyears right now. The drive to work in the morning is pretty, umm, animated for the first few miles...

Really digging that truck. Perfect stance.

Dig it! Would be great if you posted some shots of the new pieces installed under the truck too!
