opinions

Im bored, and I can't really make up my mind.
I thought I had how I want my truck to look planned out, but just the past few days Ive had a few different ideas. Ive photoshoped the new ideas here, still can't decide over if I want this or what I had in mind before.
What do ya'll think of this one?

The stripes kinda make it look like a Ford, 69 or so. personally I think I'd go for a wider tire on the back before the stripes.

Yeah but for a wider tire, Id have to get new wheels. I like the look of the wheels I got now, I don't think they make them much wider, let alone if I could find any.
I figured it would give it a meaner look more of an old muscle car. I also found a kit that converts the 2 peice glass windows on these trucks to one solid peice, which would mean the new peice wouldn't have the flames no more. And Im just considering what I like better.
This is why the damn truck has been in primer so long, because I can never make up my mind!

Thanks joe, Ive been considering lowering it a bit. I was thinking just flipping the leafspring in the back to be under the axle to try and level the truck out some.
I like the phantom grilles like that,but I think they've been overdone. Almost every truck like this one Ive seen that wasn't stock had one.

Those trucks look hideous chopped...
Slam it and shave it.
No stripes either. They don't belong on ANY truck.
I send you some pics later on.
Later,
WEIMER

Drop it, add a little rake to it just leaving it a little higher in the rear than the front, wider meats on the rear, roll pan, shave the tailgate. Simple but tasteful stuff. Oh...and slap a paintjob on it. But that is just me. I like something I can wax and the birdshoot doesn't stain into.

This is not the right style of truck but maybe a paintjob something along these lines. BTW..this is not my truck, but one of many I save off of the internet for ideas. I just don't have too many pics of square bodies though.


I did save a pic of this square body though which I think is "sweeeeet"

I think those trucks look great with the handles shaved all the drip rails shaved and no moldings, paint it black, tint the windows as dark as you can and a set of wide meats all around (wider in the rear). The one piece window sound like a great addition. Tonneau cover on the back and a large exhaust pipes exiting before the rear wheels. (helps blow tire smoke, for a bigger looking burn out).

Thanks guys, I already shaved off the drip rails, put on a roll pan.
I like steve's black idea, Id like to go that way. But there is already a truck like this around town that is prostreet like that. Its a good looking truck, I just prefer to be different. There is a carshow this weekend and Ive seen that truck there every year, so Ill try and talk to the guy and ask him a few questions, like how he put the ford 9" under it.
Im still deciding wether or not to shave the taillights and put some in roll pan.
Tailgate will definitly get shaved and the mirrors will be changed to some different ones.
I never thought of the sidepipes blowing smoke out like that, Ive been thinking about doing that when I put some exhuast cutouts on it, and have the straight pipes out in front of the tires

fat freddy

hey i know a guy that has one of them cabs , it's been chopped and needs glass. it's dented but fixable and i'll bet he'd let it go cheap. you would have to do some work on it, and if you can't decide what look to give your truck, ?
WEll I was just wondering" how much work do ya get done on it?
any way contact me if yer interested in a chopped cab it's in southern maine, and needs some loving care. it's not on a truck right now.
later freddy is not really that fat. are ya freeddy?
