    No, sorry that I don't. I have a set that somebody cut out of 1/2" plate, nothing fancy. But before doing that you probably will want to verify that they'd be needed. I can look up your Budd numbers if you find them to tell you offset, or you can measure your offset and see how much dual rear wheel spacing you'll have. A 9.00" x 20" bias ply set is shown to require 11.6" of DRW spacing. That's assuming a loaded commercial truck, so you might need less if you don't load yours. If your wheels have about 6.00" of offset you're good. Letter D in the chart is your offset measure. Stu

    The truck isn't stock but the drivetrain in it is currently. Tires are 37" tall on 22" rims, don't know the actual size off hand. Rear gearing is 5.83 and 8.11. Fastest I've gone in it is about 45, I imagine it would top out around 60 with it's original set up.

    Hey! So sorry for my delay in responding. I have to adjust my notifications. I never actually get notices that I get emails here. I made the emblems for a few customers and posted the designs on Shapeways. You can see (and buy) them here: https://www.shapeways.com/shops/ConnecticutCalvin

    Good morning, Sir.
    I was reading a thread where you mention that you can reproduce emblems using 3-D printing. I'm looking to get a set of 55-F350 hood emblems, as well as a set of 55-250 hood emblems. Are you able to reproduce these emblems? Price?
    Thank You and have a bless day.

    Sorry I don't. I thought I had some as another party was interested in the trailer but backed out. I'm in California for work. When I get back later this week I'll drive by and get a picture and the guy's phone number.

    Thanks for the reply, do you have a link to the trailer with pics I'm always looking at different projects.

    I'm new here and saw your thread on the 5 lug 20" rims with solid rings. I was wondering do you still have them since the thread is closed?

    Nice, yeah I have no idea though what kind of drums it would currently take or where I would get them. I am supposed to go identify the rear end today. I am pretty sure it is a 2 speed rear end but I do not know what model. I was thinking these tires though:
