Front end shaping up nicely too.
Thanks Rian. It's a slow job but we're making progress.

We have been making the headlight bucket for the other side so there's nothing new to photograph. I did buy a new daily driver a couple of weeks ago. It's a 2002 chevy 1/2 ton stepside with 108,000 kilometres. It has no rust so it must not have seen much winter driving. We'll start modifying it to get me and my wheelchair in and make some hand controls. I'll post updates on for anyone who might be interested.

Nice truck Dale and certainly better than my daily driver ( I'd be too embarrassed to post a picture of my daily)

Definitely...2002 is a great year, but I might be a bit prejudice. Be neat to see what you dfo with it.

Interested in the mods. You sure don't see many extended cab step sides around.

I'll show the whole conversion as we go. I drive from my chair so the lift will pick me up and put me behind the steering wheel.


The first part we need to make is a large ( 6" square 5.5 foot long ) telescope. This will support my lift and both front and back doors. To make the telescope slide easily we decided to use skateboard wheels as rollers so we made some brackets and axles. Then we cut some holes in one end of each tube and welded the brackets in place.

We got the telescoping tube assembled. we also stripped the interior and masked off dash, headliner and passenger side doors. Then we started cutting out the drivers side floor.

Re: My suburban's Twisted Little Sister

Really enjoying this conversion build Dale.

I do find your thread is one of those that I go to every time anyone posts in it.

I take it that roller system has quite a tight tolerance with minimal wriggling room.

Look forward to the next instalment.

Thanks Rian. I appreciate you following along. The roller system is very tight to prevent any twisting. Here's the next update for you.


We had to make the opening in the floor a little wider. We also had to lower the anti lock brake controller, brake lines, fuel lines and wiring. Then we started making the new floor. We'll do it in two sections so we started at the back.

Morning Dale.

Just noticed the photoshop pic below on a different forum.

Made me smile.

Hope all is good with you and your gang.

Re: My suburban's Twisted Little Sister

Hi all, Sarah here.

I'm beginning to feel like I'm the bearer of bad news. As some of you know, or may have suspected, Dale has become very, very ill. He is not going to get better, and is in the last bit of his life. The 66 sub project as therefore come to an end, and I will keep the 65 that you see in his profile. I will update this thread with his obituary when the time comes.

Thank you all for everything. He never had a specific goal to be an inspiration, but I know that he was and is to many, myself included.

Re: My suburban's Twisted Little Sister

Hi Sarah and the rest of your family.

I am really sorry to hear the news and like many others on here have looked both up to Dale, and also at him for inspiration when getting on with our own builds and lives.

I am at a loss for words on what else to say, which is a rare thing.

But know that your family and Dale will be in many of our prayers and thoughts as we go about our daily lives.

A guy like him makes the world a better place for many of us.

Fondest regards to Dale from England

Rian
