I was wondering how my FX2 would look with a 2" drop in the rear. Did you have to reshim the pinion angle or anything?

Dez, my dad restores/builds streetrods for people. He’s had a 48 Chevy p/u he restored for himself, drove it for years. Now he’s got 3 68’ Cameros he put together, for the last 10yrs he and my uncle have been trophy sluts, hitting every car show in the tristate area. If you where only 20 hrs or so closer I’d scoop up my old man and come help with the pickups.

In the past I had a '57 Chevy 4dr, no title, (long story) and put the 283 motor, trans, rear end in a '51 Hillman, (looks like a Anglia). '37 Chevy 409, 4sp, '35 Plymouth 4dr, a dirt track racer I flipped, a few '55 Chevy PU's, '54 Chevy PU, 4sp granny, VW Safari camper van, VW and Pinto powered sand buggies, and more that slip my mind. Down to two '57 Chevy PU and '34 Plymouth my grandson will inherit.. Not to mention modern cars and trucks. My favorites were the Hillman and '68 Plymouth Sports Satellite.

Don't feel bad because I'm apparently slower than you are. I didn't even know there was a hidden meaning.

Just a regular drivers license. Vehicle license is different for trucks and based part on tonnage. Trucks pulling car, boat or travel trailers are a regular drivers license. Buses and big commercial trucks, (tractors) pulling big trailers require a commercial license.

A tiny bit off topic.

I'm in our local fire fighting department (not professional) and we are looking for a chassis for our new truck (more of a SUV, all terrain vehicle ..) for next year. It has to be 4x4 and regular drivers licence. I have truck licence but many others don't. Other departments have Ford F150. Its not bad but since we have free hands on choosing I'd go for something that is more capable has higher payload and still falls under normal licence. It will be used for forest fires, floods, difficult demanding terrain, road ,... you name it.
I'm open to suggestions.

I dont know what yall have on the other side of the ditch or what requirements/limitations of yalls standard driver licence is or if you need special endorsements. You could get a SHERP, Chevy/Ford/Dodge 2500/3500, Toyota pick up of some sort.

"is there a more capable 1/2 ton pickup?"
