Re: Chevy truck's (yota_vr)

My daily beater.

Come spring it's going up a bit more and if I feel like it getting the 'glass fenders I've got sitting around and a set of 37" MT/Rs. Right now it's on a tweaked 6" BDS and 35/12.50-17's. Obviously a Duramax.

Re: Chevy truck's (NismoB3)

Thought I'd try to revive the Chev thread:
Here is my wife's 07 Tahoe LTZ, technically its a 4X4 although its a little low.

Maybe it is the color, but have you lowered that thing? All of the burbs/tahoes I know of look at least an inch higher. Maybe it is just my eyes.
Nice truck, either way. The latest gen tahoe/suburban is an awesome cruiser.

Re: Chevy truck's (Tornado2dr)

We bought it used and it was already lowered with a Ground Force lowering kit. I definatley think it looks nice, but am still considering bringing it back up to stock height. Plowed a little snow this winter, and curbs suck when parking nose in.
Compared to 90% of the Tahoes out there where people put on 22's and no lowering kit, I just think the huge wheel gap looks funny compared to ours. Just my opinion.

I really want a Duramax, but I'm rocking a 1996 Tahoe LT... It gets the job done and is pretty comfy to boot! Well, at least the dog really likes it.

There is someone in the midwest who does conversions to 2500 'burbs that looks about as factory as it gets. Duramaxsuburban.com or something similar.

I read the article is a diesel magazine while back and that guy does great work. From what I can remember is was pretty expensive for him to do the conversion.

Must be. This guy is asking $80k (no, not a typo) for a last-gen with d-max. http://blwilliamsllc.com/inven....html
Sure is a bad ass rig, though!
edit: That link quotes 45k just for the conversion. A bit too rich for my blood.

Yeah he charg'es an insane amount, I remembered it being high but not that much. Does not seem worth the money at all.

My current daily, '03 2500HD

Wheels/tires were on it when I bought it, all I've added is torsion keys up front to clear the tires. I plan on swapping the wheels for a set of black pro comps and debadging it. Something like this...

It looks a lot like the police package Tahoes a lot of the police depts around here are driving. I could be wrong but the police package Tahoes have a lower ride height. Your wifes truck on the side of the road with black steelies would get me to slam on my brakes.
