I dont believe there is a wheel well at all on the 48-52. Just the distance between the bed sides. My father has the cab to a 51 we have been wanting to start on for years...just never can get things in order. Good luck with your project.

1990 GT, 347 / 76mm turbo setup OUT AND GONE!

New setup going in. Dove headed 545 with a plate kit to 400, progressive, Th400 etc. etc. etc.

what i ment is from the outside of the rear fender to the outside of the other rear fender. i need this dimension so i know how wide to make the rear end so i can get the right backspacing on the rims. thanks.

F100 Beds

I have a 54F100 under construction. If I recall the bed is 54" for side to side. Stock fenders are 12" deep for total of 78" outside fender to outside fender. I have a 9" that was narrowed and am using FG fenders that are 2 1/2" deeper than stock with 10" wheels w/ 6" dish (4" backspacing). If you need more I can get out the tape. Good luck.
