Default 24s and bags? maybe going with a stepside bed

So Ive decided to bag the truck finally!

I have a stepside bed, but once again not sure if I can run it and have the 24s.

Let me know if 24x10s will fit all the way around it and what tire size will work with it. Also if the bag setup with no cross member will work (since Im being lazy and just going to body it later on down the road) I got alot of plans and I want these wheels with it.

If u want it to lay u will have to section the rear fenders and raise em up, unless u wanna run a tiny 275/25/24, and even then ull b rubbing the tops of the fenders... I had 265/35/22 on mine before doing a bd and they rubbed when laid out. Now I'm doin the bodydrop all set up for 275/30/24 and the beds gonna b some work.

My buddy's running 24's on a bodied 72 stepside, and he had to add 5" to the rear fenders to lay out and clear the tires.

You can raise the bed, like doin a body lift & extend the front portion of the fender & step down. That's what we'll be doing to a 54 Chevy truck soon.

You will not be able to lay out with a step side and 24s. I know Eben if you raise the fenders to the rails you will be an inch of the ground in the rear.

That's wht you raise the bed, drop the front part of the fenders & steps. It can be done.

Your wrong bro even if you raise the fenders to the bedrail and you have 24s out back it will not lay as low as a fleet side. Sorry but I have built three of these trucks I ran into this issue with my suicide rear kit step side 66 on 24s Even with the fenders raised It would not lay out all the way in the rear. Yes it was super low but it hit on the top of the fender and would not allow it to drop all the way. Just my experiance

Also you can lengthen the step and fender and raise the fender with 22 no problem but it is not a good look for the truck.

So your saying you can't do this? It works on 47 - 54 Chevy trucks.

I am building a 79 step and have 24x10's in the rear with 285/40r24 witch is 33" tall. I am layinig frame but not bodied. Have not started on bed yet but it is going to be very hard to make it look right. From all the measurements I have taken I know I will have to raise the bed at least 3.5" (witch will be close to the same hieght of a fleet bedrail) and section(add) 6-7" to the fenders to make the bottom line up with the rocker on the cab. The problem (other than the man hours it's going to take) is the body lines on the fenders are not going to line up with the body lines on cab. To sum it up: MAJOR PAIN IN THE ASS.....

I got a fleet 86 dime on 275/30/24s an I'm laying pinch and I'm currently raising the bed floor I removed the whole floor out an ran box tubing to get the body lines to match ...the bottom of my tire is 7/8 of a inch from hitting the bottom portion of the bed fender which I will have to cut a half inch out to put my stock tubs back in an I have 24x10 an its very close to touching the inner fender so I doubt you'll lay a stepside out with out extending all your fenders an shortening your rearend to allow the drop an the tires not to rub the inner fender....could it be done to lay a stepside on the pinch I doubt it BC how many have you seen with 24s fully laid out but its possible to do it if you shorten the rear end an extend the fenders but it'll look a little wierd I think just my opinion .

Those are not 24 and again you will not lay body with out raising the fenders up through the bed raids. Let me show you my truck with 24s, zed and suicide rear stock fender location

it would lay out with 22 if you raised the fenders. Not being rude but this is not my first build. I have built a few of these trucks

also that is a 73 bed rails are different as are the fenders than a 67-72. The issue is 24 on a fleet side peek at the top of a fleet side bed rail and sense the bed rail has to stay in the same spot on a step. The wheel hits the fender before the body lays out. This pic looks photo shopped

i think he means raising the whole bed and sectioning the fenders. then extending the lower portion of the bed.

I get that we also need to clarity on body and year 67-72 is different rail on top of the bed than 73 and up. As stated earler in the thread you can raise and extend the fenders but the 24 will still hit the to of the fenders and will not lay body. This is only on 57-72 steps as the beds are all the same. As far as the bed floor it is not the issue. The floor can alway be raised or cut out and notch cover placed. Any now I am done on this subject as I have tried to explain it from first hand experience.
