No instructions with mcgaughys kit. Not good. Broke the stud that goes in top of hub. Not impressed with that design. They should tell you not very tight. Had to trim splash shield to get caliper bracket on. Again no instructions to say that was needed. I turn wrenches for a living and this should have been an easy deal. Done now though.

What’s the drop on it?
Decranked with spindles on front. Flip with lift shackle on rear. 3/4 maybe. Has different wheels and fender flares as of yesterday. Not sure about the look or not. Kinda 80s.

Still looks really good. I personally like the previous iteration more, but you can't go wrong either way.

Agreed, look better without the flares and on the gmc wheels.

I'm thinking about 22s. Texas edition. This truck is at the paint shop now and actually is not as low as mine but looks lower with this tire and wheel set up. Fills wheel surround more.

Never been a fan of the larger size Texas Reps. Original 20s look good though.
I think 20s are perfect for a NBS.

I'm not a big wheel fan on nbs either. Nnbs yes. Also just more money. Bad thing is I have $1300 in those wheels and new tires. Look good on my lowered 4wd but I pushed my luck on the 2wd. Not sure but spindle may have pushed front out. I also could not find a reasonable price for correct width tire. Those are 11.83 tread width I believe. I needed 10.5 or so in that hieght. Oh well I have spares now I guess.

Is your supershort bed truck a 4wd??? There’s a guy around where I live that has a ecssb truck same color as your but with an SS clone conversion and it looks clean... I say yours would look good with 22s TX editions... I like ext cab nbs trucks on 22s single cabs on 20s or 18s 👍🏼

2wd. There's a GMC here that's 4wd but I haven't got it out of him yet. It's also silver birch. He hit a deer the other day and I tried to buy it before they fixed it. Just grill and hood. No dice. He has no idea what it is. Just a truck.

Yes there aren’t that many supershort bed trucks around... as a matter of fact the guy is selling his truck I just seen an ad on the local marketplace for it... it’s a nice truck
