Re: 69 one ton dually flatbed fun!!!!!!!!!!

Is that a Longhorn bed, or are you going to 6" out of the frame? I can't tell by the pic. Feel free to use my build thread as reference if you haven't seen it. I have pretty detailed pics of exactly how I made the rear wheels out of stepside fenders.

I'm pretty sure when you measure you'll find you have a 133" wheelbase (if it is a factory C-30 dually). The correct wheelbase for a LWB truck is 127". You will also have to cut about 4" off the end of the frame as well. Its not a bad job though. A Longhorn trucks have a 133" and use a 8 1/2 box, so you can bolt it on directly w/o cutting it.

Re: 69 one ton dually flatbed fun!!!!!!!!!!

I bought a set for my '69 C-30 on Ebay for about $20, but you can order them at any NAPA. You can also get them from LMC. They used those lights all the way up to the late 80's on C-30's and some C-20's, so they are easy to find.

Check out 72Freak's "new" dually. He used a Longhorn bed.

Re: 69 one ton dually flatbed fun!!!!!!!!!!

I will get some updated pics! I put a drop center rear bumper on it as well!! As far as the sound,i never really liked six cylinders,but i am hopelessly addicted now!! Plus it gets around 20 mpg!!! Sooo cool!!! The downside is the power,long as i am towing flat ground it is fine,any grade kills ya! I bet a turbo would help a bunch,hmmmm!!!
