Re: Raising the bed floor 67cheby

That is some nice work on the bed, your body shop does great work! What interior color are you going with?

Have you decided if you will make it to the Nat's?

just reading some of your thread, nice work BTW, I was wanting to know why you had to move the trailing arm crossmember back an inch. is it to center the rear wheels while laid out? just curious

Re: Raising the bed floor 67cheby

Looks good bro, I raised mine 6", but Im thinking about going more before I weld it all up, as I have plans of being lower in the future

Are you planning on Z'ing the frame ???

Re: Raising the bed floor 67cheby

I havent finished my bed yet, but when done, the fenders will most likely be touching & I plan to make my own instead of using the stock ones

Heres a link to the page my bed mods are on
