Re: How about some pics of lowered long beds

Here is a couple of pictures of my 68 earlier this year with heated coils lowering it 4 inches all around. I have since changed the front and rear suspension, brakes and wheels. The last 2 pictures are the only ones I have since changing everything. I know have drop spindles and lowered coils up front for total of 5 1/2 inches and the rear has lowered coils and blocks for a total of 5 inches. It has the same 15 inch tires on different wheels. The truck has looked a like for 20 years and I was wanting something different. What do you think of the Orange wheels and original center caps?

DMW,
Your truck looks very clean and well proportioned, great job!
I have been looking for the chrome "half eyelid" type headlight covers. I don't know what they are called and each time I ask no one has any idea what I am talking about. Can you tell me what they are called and where I can get some?

Re: How about some pics of lowered long beds

Dash I am glad you started this thread. When I started my truck I was originally going to cut it in half like LoBuk and make a SWB out of it but the more I drove it around the more I liked the look of it. Good to see that there are more out there.
