Re: A '54 named Busty

went shopping for some leaf spring plates with shock brackets on 'em and scored these beauties off of a 2002 Dodge Durango, this eliminates the need to weld shock brackets to the axle itself

Re: A '54 named Busty

I'm kinda liking what I'm seeing in this Hot Rod Relocating an In-Cab Fuel Tank No More Fumes mounting wise, though I realize it's a different tank on a different gen truck, ha ha

Re: A '54 named Busty

so my tires finally showed up, it was kinda wierd for a few months Amazon would not ship them to my house, nor would they allow me to ship them to a store like Sears of Pep Boys, anyway got sum Cooper Cobras 245/60-R15s [pronounced: "meats"] in a nod to the 70s

I wanted to go bigger rims but couldn't find the proper offset, also had to go with this size to keep the emergency cables from rubbin' on the rear tires like they was on the wheels that came with the truck

Re: A '54 named Busty

also replaced the 12" Grant like wheel with this 14" Grant(ish) wheel since I don't recon this is the stock '54 steering column so my stock steering wheel can't mount up to it (kinda sucks)

gonna use an acorn center nut eventually and three hex head bolts to make it look nicer, hewk may even throw a horn button on it some day
