Lightbulb Re: Show me your 4x4 Suburbans!

Very nice sir.

My dream burb would be to buy a 2wd in decent condition body wise and take it down to the frame. Then find either 5.3/6.0 liter with all tranny/transfer case and other modern fare. Once the body has been gone thru would transfer all to new running chassis and interior. Green with white strip. 33-35" tires maybe a turbo 5.3 liter. Just in the planning stage now.

Like I said just a dream in my head right now.

1972 Custom delux / 20
D44/eaton 4:10 gears
Rubber mat front to back
Non A/C but have a complete roof A/C from a 70burb front to rear.
6" skyjacker F&R springs
3 row bench seats all great.
35" BFG AT Ko / 9.75 x 16.5 KH wheels ( just waiting )

Now the new build

It's going to be a frame off rotisserie color combo will stay the same.

Plans keep changing
tailgate / hatch ,door barn door.
