Default '62 dually wheels

Hello. Don't have a question. Just thought I would share. I found some dually wheels & tires on craigslist last time I was in town. They are 235/85/16 on steels from a 80's C30. The seller had put some 19.5's on his and they looked cool. I took them out to the farm where my truck is stored to put them on. That's where the fun began. On the driver side, the studs had been replaced with bolts. Got most of them off, but the last two just wanted to spin. Almost had room to get a wrench on back, but not quite. Had to wedge a prybar in there. Finally got them off. Only took an hour. The passenger side still had studs, but the nuts didn't want to budge. Found an 8' pipe (cause farmers have everything possible laying around) and got er done. Now for the rear. Didn't happen. No problem with lug nuts, just couldn't lift the rear. Seems with the lift gate on the truck, it was too much for my floor jack. Oh well. Next time.
I forgot to get pics, so I added some from the month before when I took my '49 Chevy 1 ton dually out to keep the '62 company.
