Re: wheels

It is not so easy to have wheel clearance in a very short time.

Re: wheels

I'm assuming you mean the 4.5 inch car bolt pattern? Some later model F100s and vans had the smaller pattern. You might be able to swap over the parts.Rear end swap should be easy but the front end will be a little harder.. I assume this would have a straight axle front end?
