Re: How about some pictures of '73-'87 short beds

Hey 75,
are those intro vista's.They look good.Ae you running a 10" in the rear with about a 4" back spacing.What size are your tires front and rear.I have 15x10 with 4" back spacing.they fit nice the dont stick in too much as i have seen with other 10' wheels.I was just curious because it seems as if your wheels fit real good also.If you decide on 20"s do you think you would sell the 18"s.Dont mean to bother you at work you can respond later if youd like.Thanks greg

Re: How about some pictures of '73-'87 short beds

I used DJM lower control arms and a DJM flip kit in the rear. Which came out to be a 3/5 drop.

Re: How about some pictures of '73-'87 short beds

haha.. thanks.. funny, a lot of people have said they like it the way it is .. beatup.. it's my daily driver when I'm not riding my motorcycle.. The interior is suprisingly pretty clean. The windows are tinted dark..at night you can't see in the cab at all. I need to get a new bed this one is shot. Clean up the cab with a new quarter panel and weld some holes. Get it media blasted and painted. Those are the main things.
A next door neighbor years ago had a nice swb cheyenne that I lusted over. Ever since I've been looking for one. I found this one cheap.

It's got a 350 4bolt dropped in it.. .. suprising how you can rail around the corners with these trucks lowered. It's a super stiff ride .. no sway at all. When I first got it .. I was thinking oh man it needs a lot of work what was I thinking. I already have 2 motorcycle projects. That night I got it the girl I was seeing thought it was pretty cool.. liked the width of the cab.. and the couch like red seat, she wanted to have sex in it. Never questioned it after that. I love Cheyennes!

Nice in progress stepside, steemin! I am now searching your old posts to see if I can find specifics on what you've done to your ride.

Re: How about some pictures of '73-'87 short beds

Patrick, my mom made me one of those (cake replica of Yeller) for my B-day...but it looked nowhere as good as that one. It looked more like a truck from the movie CARS.

Steamin...NICE project!!!

Sounds cold!

Did you build that entire front rollpan/bumper yourself, or is there a front roll pan somewhat mass-produced for our trucks? After seeing that, my bumper all of a sudden looks really clunky and awkward.

No clue, I found it on the web years ago...I believe it was in a truck magazine website.

Here are the only two pics I have of it.

actually its not really that cold up here, so far this winter its been warmer than -15 degree Celsius which is about 5 Fahrenheit. (not cold AT ALL) its just been this past week thats been -40 with windchill lol (-40 fahrenheit?) yea pretty cold anyway...my trucks definately a summer truck.

me and my dad fabricated the front roll pan our selves. right from the rear box corners of a 89-98 chevy truck and some flat sheets of steel. it took a while to get right, but im more than happy with the way it turned out! i have some pictures of the roll pan progress here im still workin on that site so if its kinda all over the place, thats why lol
