That is a damn good looking truck TD!!!

Nothing shiny on the outside but lots of work to the underneath. Pic was this weekend getting ready to head out for a track session out at Oregon Raceway Park.

Having a blast with the truck.

How much does the half hanger flip lower the rear? Also can someone tell me from experience how much cutting one coil from the front springs lowers the front? Or two coils.

Hey guys I'm a newbie, my 14 year old son just bought a 1969 short bed. I've looked at almost all this post and we decided that we like the look of td's red truck with the 10 inch steel wheels on the back. I would like to know the setup of his old truck and advise, because this is my first bump. Thanks in advance for help and info.

Your red truck is very nice!!!!! i was wanting to know how much of a drop do you have on your truck? i also was woundering what size wheels are you running on the rear and if you are running a stock rear end? I have a 68 and im wanting to drop it and run some wheel with a deep lip but im scared they will rub my outer finder.

That is beautiful! Is that a static drop or do you have air?

Thank You, It is static, and has plenty of clearance for daily driving,
I gotta try pretty hard to scrape it on something...

That is great. Did you have to raise the truck bed floor?
