Choosing trucks for a shaped deck isn’t as simple as with a “normal” straight-sided popsicle. The widest point of the new Ditch Witch is 10.1″, but it narrows to 9″ at the front truck and a ridiculously skinny 8.25″ at the back truck. Yes, that’s not a typo. We double-checked.
This means you’re probably going to want a 9″ axle, leaving the back wheels exposed in a proper 1980s style; as ever, we’re going to recommend the Gullwing Pro IIIs (one track mind over here!), but the new 6.5 Film trucks or the classic Ace 55s would also do the job. There’s something for every style and budget in that size bracket now!
