Thanks. Well, they are skinny for sure, just not quite as tall as I thought they looked in the pic.

They do work off road! That picture was from Rausch Creek after following 2.5ton and 5ton millitary trucks all day with only 105hp.

Re: Post pictures of your lifted 67-72's

You are? I'm getting younger everyday! Please don't correct me. Yeah, those were the days. All of them nice, running, driving, and a variety. I don't know where the '70 C/30 utility body was, but that's it in the other picture how it was when I bought it. The red orange & white K/20 has add-a-leafs with 35/12.50 BFG A/Ts on 8" black nugget wheels. Yes, they liked to rub. That was how I bought it. Those came off and white powder coated 9.75s with 33/12.50s went on. Here is a picture many years later showing the same truck, add-a-leafs, and 285/75s on 8" wheels. I like than look for minimal lift/beefy stock look

Re: Post pictures of your lifted 67-72's

I guess I have to be friendly if Stocker is... or at least try. Here we go:

Welcome to the site! Nice stance, old war horse, blah blah blah, etc, etc

Did you change the steering over to the newer style when you did the axles? I like that thing! I see part of lawn ornament collection there. Looks like you have plenty of yard for them

Re: Post pictures of your lifted 67-72's

Special K: I swapped a power steering box in when I did the lift and 35" tires back in 2003. Broke the steer shaft on the original column and swapped in an 89 column. I'm gonna try to put power brakes on in the next couple weeks.
