it would be cool to have a gasser 60-66 but it would suck as a dd maybe on my next truck!

Re: Best "Rake/Stance" for a Hot Rodded 60-66 C10?

i think that the factory rake is just perfect on these trucks but i want the overall thing a little lower to the ground. I plan on lowering mine with springs all around.

to me, it doesn't get much better than that! what size tires are you running in those pics? and what size will you be running with the steelies/narrow whites? i had thought about a similar look but decided to keep mine looking stock...still planning for a lowered build in the future tho

Re: Best "Rake/Stance" for a Hot Rodded 60-66 C10?

I think a fleetside looks good with a very slight rake or none at all.
But I think a stepside definitely needs rake.
