Re: Wheel setup question *first post, just joined*

CC69Rat,... Welcome to the Board.
I also own a stepside truck.
Mine is a '70 model.
You can definitely get more wheel and tire under the fender of a fleetside bed.

My question is:
What suspension mods to you have planned?
If you are looking at just a stock suspension, or a static drop,... the wheels can hang outside of the rear fenders or flush with the fenders.

If you plan on bagging it,... that's a total different story with those narrow rear stepside fenders.

Have you looked in the 67-72 Message Board area?
There should be a few "show us your stepside" threads.

Again,... Welcome!
