I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

There was a fellow from the east coast (Ned) who drove his one ton panel not only to the Kansas City reunion, but carried on from there farther west. Did a whole tour of the country over a 6 week period. All in an original one ton panel with a 216 and standard steering.

Skinny tires (bias or radial), rebuilt and properly adjusted steering box with the proper self-leveling lube, and you will be amazed at the difference even when parked.

On Neds last grand tour he and his kitty,stopped by the house for a couple days and although the panel looks heavy duty it rode pretty darn good on these S.C. roads. RIP Ned,
