Thanks. Any tire rub? Or, did you modify the fenders (roll the fender lips)?

No I have no clearance issues I used a 1979 trans am rear axle so it is just a little narrower than the original 1/2 inch I believe but no issues

Great. Thanks for the info. I'm using a stock axle so maybe a bit wide. Looking at 235/70/15 on 15x7 wheels.

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

Hello Everyone,

This being my first post I figure I should show the beautiful truck that I just received as an inheritance. It is my grandfathers 58' Apache that he named Betsy. She was beautifully restored by one of my relatives and although she is in a finished state I do have plans to adapt her into a more comfortable ride but for now I am enjoying the privilege of driving her as she sits.
