Narrowing overall width
I recently got a screaming deal on a flat bed that I've had my eye on for some time. The trouble is that it was built for a duramax and is a hair to narrow for old smokey. I knew this going into the deal, It did not influence the deal one way or the other.
What are my options? I've considered newer style 18's with spacers but don't think it's possible to make a 1" spacer without cutting the factory studs down. On top of that, that seems horribly expensive. Aftermarket wheels are an option but I'd rather not.
Most likely I'll keep the bed forever, the Ford.......not as confident. Modding the bed is a last resort, it has stainless goodies everywhere that I'd rather not taint.
