How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds

We seen many pictures of the '67-'72 short beds so how about some of the '73-'87 short beds. Here is mine to start.
Also if you would like to show off your Longbeds that would also be great.

Awesome looking truck there. I thought the 78-79 years had the head light bezels going around the blinkers below the head lights ... do you have a different front clip?

I just bought the parts for the 78. The blinkers do not fit perfect but quick glance it looks good. Only bought the bezels no sheet metal.

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

If you were referring to my primered hunk...
it is a stylin concepts 5/5.
- front is 3" spindles and 2" springs. (i removed the bump stops altogether- after 4 or 5 years my lower control arms are toast)
- the rear is a simple flip.
the wheels are 17 and big n little tires give it a little rake.

the mount that holds the bumpstop on mine is crushed, and i was thinking of just taking the whole mount and bumpstop out, do you have any problems? hit it a lot?

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

2 problems with removal.
1. it gets a little bouncy and the tires will rub fenderwells on a big dip
2. no steering stops from lock to lock, so you have to be gentle.
**
not too much crossmember bottoms, but a few hard hits on potholes etc have
wreaked havoc on the leading ege of my control arms...
