Re: The Burb a long time coming

Now I need to find someone that does interior renderings, because, sad to say, Chad does not.

Thanks ... I know that the wheels can make or break a good vehicle so it took some time considering I haven't seen many suburbans with these style wheels to compare

Me too ... that is ride height

Figured I would get back with Chad to give me a dropped or more dropped raked version as well.

It is getting a Accuair so it will have 3 height settings plus parked and and down.

Re: The Burb a long time coming

So it seems we are having 1 off chassis to body issues once again, this time being the front inner wheel liners ...

I have a set of "Hill's Rods and Custom" drop style inner wheel well liners, but they won't fit this chassis without major mods which could make them weak so instead of cutting them up its time for a even more custom approach.

The Hills pieces fit a stock or porterbuilt set up, my body is lower on the frame by a few inches so I can't use them now.

I tried unsuccessfully to look it up, but I think Hill's has 2 versions of their inner fenders - slam and super slam. Maybe give them a call before you go full custom and see if you can swap them out. If not, someone will buy your current ones for sure so it isn't money wasted.

Re: The Burb a long time coming

Ya, I have been informed they no longer sell parts

Guess I will be selling some front tubs pretty soon and switching over to my other choice, Self Made Fab ... it was what I was looking at for a non-stock appearance, and they are metal and will allow for modification work with ease.
