It's hard to give me truck envy: but this does it.
I bet it's a workout to steer those tires!

Looking at your story in the gallery, it looks like you did a lot of good stuff on this truck. It is a real beauty.

Do you know where to find tech specs for the Napco conversions? I have been curious about it for a long time, but can't find a decent resource for hard info. Things like the new spring rates/sizes, how much the body is lifted compared to the 2WD, that kind of thing.

Drivable but the rear axle needs work.

Mine has 6" lift blocks on the rear axle.

I will be converting the headlights to a relay controlled setup this summer. I ran dedicated ground wires from the bulbs and still have kick-out from the headlight switch overload. I bought a kit from Daniel Stern Lighting that has HID elements inside GE bulb Pods sourced from Belgium; they look like OEM if you don't put your head next to them.... I am excited to drive it this summer and not have the lights kick off. Now all we have to do is have our administration fix the gas crisis.
I replaced the BFG radials with Cooper Discover radials (made in Ohio!!!) and went up one size to gain some more diameter. 285-75-16...
It doesn't steer to bad with the tires set to 50 psi!
The truck is a line built NAPCO from Willow Run Michigan, Chevrolet started this in mid production year for the 1958 truck.
Not a show goes by that someone asks me what kind of a lift I have on it.......
