Re: C10CJ: A Pro-touring '71 Stepside on a No Limit Pro-C10 Chassis

Once I got the chassis on order, I then had to figure out what wheels I wanted and then decide, do I wait to get the truck back together and then order wheels or do I take a crap ton of measurements and order wheels off measurements and calculations? Well, I went the measurement route. It was painful, but worked out in the end. I did tons of body simulations using my old wheels (which won't fit on the new chassis) to get the wheel set in the wheel well and then I back calculated the backspace I would need based on the new track widths of the Pro-C10 which are different from the stock C10.

And yes, that is my front clip setup in my house. I put the clip at my estimated ride height, squared it up, then set tires in, looked at it, moved them, looked again, repeat until happy.
