Thanks, they are 18s in the rear, 17s in the front with 3" drop springs. It is low but looks and rides great!

i lived in P'cola for almost 3 years...hopefully you've found the cruise-in @ Burger King on 9-mile Rd....made some good friends there that i miss quite a bit...too bad we're not still there, or we could have a "Black Betty" get together ....i bought my '66 from a gentleman there in Pensacola, & he called her Betty...well, since the truck is black, i kept her name & now call her Black Betty...& since i don't have a working radio, my wife used to sing "Black Betty" to me when we were cruising around P'cola, lol
Yep, we ride out to the BK on Saturdays all the time and really enjoy it.

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome.
