    Thanks for the PM regarding your tire size. I am still learning how to navigate through this site.
    What was your choice of wheels? Vendor, backspacing, and trim? That's what I am aiming for on my 1951, which currently has old school centerline wheels. Thanks so much.

    Hi Joe, yes you told me you live in New Providence. My sister is married to a big dairy farmer near Mechanics Grove named Kreider. Their farm is on Spring Valley Road. Next time I visit them I will let you know before hand and set up a time to meet at your place so I can see your trucks!

    Stock ratio was 5.14/1, optional 5.83/1. You might find the tooth counts stamped on the case. The 5.14 is 36/7, the 5.83 is 35/6. If nothing else you can prop up one corner and spin a wheel (twice around I believe) and count the rotations of the drive shaft. Stu

    My one sister lives near Quarryville, actually near Mechanics Grove, married to a big dairy farmer named Kreider. When we go to visit her we usually go down 272 rather than 222 where New Providence is.
