Nice find!

Thanks MudMam...They're actually 20s. 20x8.5 and 20x9.5. I wanted to go 22s but did really want to modify anything right now. I want to enjoy like this for a bit. Maybe next year I'll go 22s. But I'm actually really liking the simplicity of these wheels.

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

I would stick with them, they actually look like 22's with the body heigth so a 22 will prob look like to much, you hit it just right the 1st time.

No problem on the input, glad it rides good, would be way more stiff with a 22' wouldn't it, please keep us posted on more.

It's not bad at all, but I do park all my "summer toys" for the winter, they really only are on the road from about May to September, and I have my 2002 Crew Cab 4x4 that I drive year round. The roads typically aren't that bad here, I do live in a small town with more dirt roads than most, but I'm less than 100' from pavement.

This first picture here is right outside of my driveway, the other three are dash mounted phone pics taken on road trips around the state:

Going to Fairbanks (was actually on the way to pick up my parts truck in this one!):

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

Wow Nick, your roads look slightly better than ours but we live quite a ways north in Sask also plus our time line is exactly same as yours, sometimes less depending on the amount of snow which up here is always a mystery.
Looks like beautiful country, remember many years ago as a teen my parents had a trip planned to Alaska but never did work out, think they would have really enjoyed the beautiful country, they are both gone now but still think of their dream trip.

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

Added this as a driver around town... one owner 1980 new crate motor. So I decided it was too stock and needed a 3/5 drop and some new wheels. These old trucks are getting a lot of attention these days.

No pics of stereo, went with the custom auto sound setup, aux cable and Spotify works for me! Did a Rockford amp, punch 3.5" in the dash and two pioneer 6x9. That amp really woke it up. Very happy with the sound.

Ok One more. I haven't done a lot to er. New rearend (pinion nut backed off and ruined things ), Clutch,starter, and a paint job in 1995.
The seat needs to be redone, and the original wood bed is showing it's age.
