Not a fan of the wheels but still a fan of the truck. Turned out super nice. No disrespect on the new wheels

It's not even so much the wheel 'look'. It's just that their cost helped saturate the market around me. Seemed like they're on damn near every Square or OBS truck around & why I stuck w/Ralleys on my 90.

Sweet! What was involved in swapping onto the 2006 frame? I would imagine its shortened, but any body modifications or anything? Looks like a nice clean fit.

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds Part II

Ya frame was shortened body was sat on and mounts were made. It was fairly easy and I've done a few more the same way since. Currently building 72 gmc with duramax

Rock an update w/this one. I love to bring back old paint. And on one of these dropping it to the scrub line seals the deal.

A couple 1/8” shims under the back of the bed to bring it level with the cab would do wonders for that thing!

I've seen what would seem special order color combos on older trucks but never a square.
