Front leaf spring

My truck measures 2 1/4" wide, the new spring set is 1 3/4". Can someone clue me into what I'm dealing with here. Bob C has ...

Re: Installing a 30-31 hood and radiator shell on a 28

Bob C, well this all makes sense now, I knew the dump body was 1930 because there was no hydraulics prior to that, The 4 speed tranny also had me confused as well as the Budd wheels, I thought maybe somebody had upgraded it at some point, but this was a one owner truck prior to my purchase.

Re: Installing a 30-31 hood and radiator shell on a 28
