I think those are the same colors as mine. My wheels are 20" Riddlers. I need to measure but I believe it's 10's up front and 11's out back.

Tell your nephew he has a great looking truck for me, please.

I don't know, Marcus. I'm not sure they exist. I haven't met them if they do, lol. Thanks!

A few weeks ago I discovered that the front was not only not dropped correctly but that my spindles were not machined correctly. I ended up replacing the drop spindles with new ones and got lowering springs. I'm now sitting with a 4.5 inch drop in the front courtesy of McGaughys components. No idea what drop I have in the rear as it's just 2" drop shackles and I have two leafs left. I estimate its a 5-6 inch drop. I doubt I'll go lower because I like it how it is now.

Based on the pics I'd say you're very close to 6" rear drop. Not a fan of shackles & removing leafs as it reduces the ability for a truck to do truck stuff. Ridetech has a nice 4-bar C/O set-up for these & Detroit Speed introduced new stuff this year.

With a young-gun on the way, you might need to step up your capacity....

I appreciate it, Scott. I've been reading a lot of your posts on 67-72chevytrucks. I can't get the admin to respond to any of my inquiries on why I can't post though. Frustrating as hell since there's clearly a huge amount of knowledge on that site.

The little one is sleeping next to me right now. I sure hope he's into cars when he gets older.

The previous owner was the one who removed leafs from the spring packs. It rides well and I don't need to carry anything since my daily is a Tahoe. It'll do until I put a four link out back. Ridetech, No Limit, and DSE definitely have my eye at this time with their offerings. I just received my Ridetech front sway bar which I hope to install today. I'm incredibly impressed with the packing and quality thus far. First item I have bought from them. The fact that they actually packed the bar in such a manner as to protect it was huge. But, I digress.

I appreciate the kind words, gentlemen.
