Any Ideas

So I have a 1978 ford F150 that I am giving a complete face lift new custom paint and interior and High performance race parts to make it a street strip truck, and I want the look that were the *** is a little higher than the front and I wanted the rear tires to be wider in the back, like 50s on back my brother had on a old camaro I really like this look!!! it will have 3.73 gears and I am trying to get the Hp to 450 to 500 hopefully but may end up at 400 at the most will have to wait and see, so what I want Ideas with is what tire sizes I should go with brands etc

If I am going to have 3.73 gears new performance shocks, traction bars, posi rear end, what will work with what I want with out making lots of modification if any????

Does anybody have any pics of what they have

Yes and lots of great info, that was one of the first forums I join when I bought my 64 F100 and I learned so much, in fact I was inspired to do a frame swap and my 64 body sits on a 1975 F150 frame which gives me better suspension, power brakes, and power steering just as an example. Check it out.
