I knew a guy years ago who used a fleetside inner fender as the tub for the stepside. It looked like a factory install.
I guess my next step is to get the Torq Thrustís in my possession so I can measure everything and determine what width diff to use. I have a line on an 8-3/4 Mopar diff out of a 69 B-body. It measures 59.2" wide. It would be plenty strong enough for my mild 350.
Nice truck, good work. I don't think you'll be disappointed w/8 3/4 mopar rear, they are real strong. Is it GMC or Chevy, we like photos, its okay to show off. olnolan
