Re: Project SLAMBULANCE

A couple more pics now that I have the center caps on the wheels for the first time.

I will get all the specs together for the air ride and post those in the next week or so. Off the top of my head, I know the front spindles were 2.5" drop and the rear lowering blocks were 2". I believe we have an overall drop of 8" & 10" when the air is out of the bags.

Thanks for the positive comments!

I had that same lino in my '76 motorhome. It looked stunning against the green shag carpet.

Chaseman, I love the build so far. The wheels look great.

Man that looks sweet. The wheels look like an extension of the trim and hub caps just pulls everything together.

Re: Project SLAMBULANCE

I'm not a big Suburban fan, especially an ambulance one. That is cool!! Good job. Is there more to come?

There are a few more things that I am planning, but nothing as exciting as paint, disc brake conversion & air ride!

It gets new exhaust and a hidden sound system at some point before the weather gets good again.

Re: Project SLAMBULANCE

A quick run to the beach last night was our first official cruise. The truck ran beautifully & the response on the street was fantastic.
The truck drew a crowd & we showed the imports how it's done!
