Its to bad they didnt hold out for a Longhorn bed.

I just bought a 70 C/30 that still has the factory flatbed. It seems they usually get changed out to something else after a few different owners.
SPID shows it to be 133, I am not sure exactly how much he cut or why. He simply says it wasnt much......and that he moved the springs. What do you mean bobbed?

I roughly measured the brakes and they appear to be 13"

Do you have to remove the axles and hubs to see the brakes, like on a medium duty?
