I am starting a new project, I have an all original (Down to the tires) 1974 Dodge D200 step side 3 speed manual transmission. I need a tire size for these, looking to put new rims on it (a little wider wheele).
I am also looking to possibly lower the front end a little bit. I figure I would hit up people on this board to see what ideas people have for this truck. Thanks for any advice.

How about some pics and what size motor do you have?

The engine is a 318 and here are some photos.

Nice truck. Are you into the classic look? I kinda like the hubcaps and spare mount.  Only thing missing is an old school camper top.

Thanks, I do like the old school look. Do you have a good source for parts? I have always worked on my dads mustang, and there are a million places to get parts for that, but I am struggling to find a good place to get parts for the truck.

It really just depends on what you need. Restoration type parts can be found @ LMC trucks or Ebay. Wear and tear stuff and general maintenance items will be readily available at your local auto parts store or rockauto. welcome to the site . That is a nice truck

x2 on RockAuto. With a little planning, you can keep the shipping down by ordering from the same warehouse. With a little search you can find a 5% discount which can cut some of that shipping cost.

There's alot of parts houses that carry stuff for our trucks but you have to do a little creative searching on the internet. If you get get in a jam let us know, we might have a source for you. Sometimes you just have to do a little homework to find what you're looking for.nd

Do a Google search for 74 Dodge truck pics and that will give you some ideas.
