Oh yeah, Red Rocker is probably the most well known Custom square built to date. That one and Hill's Blazer top the list. I think Carter Hickman's Blazer is the next one destined for star power.

Awesome build Eric. I looked at your site and could not find the specs on the tires/wheels. What are the sizes and back space?

the fronts were 20x8 245/45/20 with 4"back spacing the rears I used a ford 9" out of a granada it was like 5"narrower than stock. I welded two sets of wheel houses together for a tub. the rears were 20x 12 with 315/35x20 I can't remember the back spacing.hope this helps. just loaded some build picts on photobucket if you want to see more details.

That helps a lot. I keep running in to those 315's and love the look. Not sure if I am ready to cut my bed to accommodate a set, but I do like that look.

Nitto makes a 305/35/20 that looks good on a 10" wheel. Probably don't have to cut into the bed for that tire.

I have seen that, just not sure that I want a 35 series. They used to make a 305/40/20 but not any more. Why is it they never seem to make exactly what I am looking for.

Default looking for a truck

this is awesome. i've finally put my foot down and decided i want a standard cab truck to fiddle with, daily drive, and have for some time into the future.

really, i'm looking for anything in between 1973 and 2006 as i like each body style for different reason and could definately see a similar style (which i want to utilize) across these spectrum of trucks.

the hardest thing i've run into over the past week is actually finding standard cab short beds for sale. is there any trick to uncovering these gems.

telly, how much are you selling yours for?
