Alan, I use Atlas trucks under these gons as IMO it gives a much better look and ride.  I think the biggest issue right now is availability of Atlas 100-ton trucks.  A lot of well known dealers are out of stock and waiting for Atlas to deliver more.   Atlas shows pre-order for the 7066 2R 100-ton trucks.   You can still find them just becoming more difficult.

The Protocaft 100t barber S2's look excellent under the Lionel Gon and double the value of the car. :-)

Nick, Great idea and definitely further improves the quality of the model.  I Just hate to do that without upgrading the detailing , underframe piping, cut levers, air line, etc... I feel bad about putting highly detailed trucks on a car like this when I know most of the truck isn't going to be seen, much like the under body detail.   With the Atlas trucks (20 bucks) a little weathering, the ride height is correct, looks good and trouble free.

BTW, Bill Davis still shows some of the ASM Barber S-2 100-Ton Roller Bearing in stock!  for those wanting to go to that level of detail.
