With your job, you should be able to scam some HUMVEE tires for "Frank the Tank". I like the tread pattern on those, and they'd look good on your rig.

You would think as tax payers that should be automatic!

Now this is how I want my floor in the rear to look after I complete the sheetmetal. Please give us more details on your super installation of this floor system.

Re: Show me your 4x4 Suburbans!

Joe,

I love your 'burb and flooring but my beast will be doing work with a touch of class and I really love what you have done to the floor.

Just give me some idea how you pulled that job off.

Re: Show me your 4x4 Suburbans!

Well, I put a new tire on my suburban!



Or I shredded a 35 monday morning on the way to work and threw a spare on the front. Surprisingly it still tracks straight! I knew the tires were dry rotted when I bought the truck but hoped they would work until I finished the cummins swap. So I'm going down to DRMO tomorrow to see if I can bid on some HMMWV tires and trade my aluminum 16s wheels with a buddy who has steel 16.5s and wants my wheels.

Re: Show me your 4x4 Suburbans!

@lowrollin70gmc.
I like your plan on the tires!
Considering your line of work, I figured you could easily get some good tires that would look great on your burb.
Be sure to post up pics of your burb with her new shoes!

Re: Show me your 4x4 Suburbans!

This is a repost from different thread I thought you guys would find interesting:

Found out with Sammy's help this was used by US Army Corps of Engineers. Dating from 1995-1999 is the last stickers on the back of the rear view mirror.

Very interesting history this truck has lead

Re: Show me your 4x4 Suburbans!

I've been looking for Burb for a couple of years now and wanted a 4x2. After looking at this thread a few times I'm really starting to think there may be a
4x4 Burb in my future. I do realize and respect how much time and money go into doing one of these with the jacked up stuff but I would prefer to do mine like the original with the factory buckets and console and a set of 6 bolt rally wheels,which I already have and maybe put a 68 front clip on as I love the front end of the 67/68 trucks. I'm dealing on this one in Minnesota and as usual it took the owner two wekks to return my call and I've been waiting 3 days now for the more detailed pictures he was going to send the next day. I bootlegged the attached pics from the CL ad and that is why they are small.

Re: Show me your 4x4 Suburbans!

Well join the club man!

I knew if I was going to own a Suburban it had to be 4x4 and not a wimpy 4x2. Hoping to really enjoy it soon and then slowly restore it when time and money permits.

All the advise I can give you on your future project is this:

1. Find the most expensive one you can afford. Less restoring and more enjoying.
2. Slowing restore to your tastes not anyone elses!
3. Then Enjoy the heck out of it and use it how it was intended to be used!

When I started to look... I wanted 4x4 - for winter trips to a family cabin (mud/snow). I came across a lot of nice 4x2s, but held out until I found the one I wanted (4x4). I think you'd have a nice 4x4 with your plans mentioned above. That's a nice burb you're looking into.... keep us posted! You don't see too many original looking 4x4s... so you'd have something that's admired by many.

Now see, this is something else I like about mine.

You do not see too many with the option that has the A/C under the bench seat. Still want to modernize mine with a Vintage Air or some other kit but for now, heck I am leaving well enough alone!
