Do you know if the rear Cragar's are 8 inch ?

Sorry it took me a while but I measured today and the Cragar S/S wheels are 8".

Thanks Tommy, and I agree the F7 Chargers and really sweet.

Thanks DB.  I'm selling off the parts now on CL and dodgecharger.com, so if anyone needs b-body stuff PM me.

Quick update on my Charger.  I swapped out the Performer 440 intake for a CH4B, installed a Proform 750 carb with Cool Carb shield and spacer, re-routed the fuel line and added a return with a new sending unit, installed a new hi-flow fuel pump and rod, installed a new Firecore distributor, coil, and 8.5 mm wires, changed the rear main seal and added a windage tray while I was at it, swapped front drums to drilled and slotted discs with a new booster, and topped it of with a new Eddy air cleaner. 

The 440 runs SO much better now!   :ylsuper:

This winter its all about suspension and steering: Stage III box from FirmFeel, bigger sway bars and t-bars, new springs and shocks, and installing sub-frame connectors.

Very nice.....looks great! I haven't done a lot with mine just a few local shows and cruises.  The Cuda' took up most of my time the past 2 years but it is all completed. Maybe next spring I can look at the Charger to see what is needed on it if anything.

Thanks.  I think they always need something.  I'm looking forward to see pics when spring rolls around.

Dang it Frazz you helped out again.

I just made my own ground for my fuel sender and although it's not super accurate now at least I now know that it works!

The Charger is looking great!

I tightened up the suspension with subframe connectors, 1 7/8" front sway bar, 1.10 torsion bars, Hemi springs +1", new shocks (Bilstein front and Sensa-trac rear), offset bushings, and new Weld Prostar wheels with M/T Sportsman S/R tires.  Caught a nice sunset last night in Denver for some pics.

Great shots.  The rake of the car plus the wheels & rims give your car a very, very mean look.
I pity any car that pulls up beside yours.

I like the old school Cragers better...but I agree the new rollers make it look like a race car :grinyes:

Thanks for compliments guys.

The Cragars are nice but I thought I would go with the Prostars for more of an old school straight-line drag car look since I have the road & track look on the Cuda.  I think the Charger being a bigger car looks good with the big tires too.
