late build thread...LOL

ok so everyone keeps asking me about a build thread so I guess I will try to create one, so there may be a few steps left out along the way...LOL, if you have any questions just ask... here we go. Picked up a taterd Burb for some chump change.

Then got her some new shoes, also dropped it some, pulled 2 leafs in the rear, and chopped some 06 chevy coils down and put them in.

Then about 6 months later started the body work for paint...and traded the 22s for some coys so I could keep my AC when I bagged it.


While we had it tore apart at the body shop i started get up parts for the air ride.
here it is after I bagged it,

Then it was not low enough so I chopped the crossmember and cut the cups down to 1.25 inches

Re: late build thread...LOL

ok so here it is after the chopped xmember

it sits on the front spoiler and the tires are touching the inside of the fender...
Nice but the front bags were touching the a-arm, so i put the 2.5 cups back in and am sinking some 9 inch pipe down into a set of a-arms... so this is it with the bigger cups in.

Re: late build thread...LOL

Your Burb looks killer as usual. Do you have any close up shots of your headlight bezels after you "cleaned them up"?

Re: late build thread...LOL

i see you fliped the axel and bagged it but kept you leafs and didnt cut the hell outa the botom fo the body. doesnt that make it harder for the bags to raise the frame aways from the axle? sorry dont know alot about bags but thinking about it on my C10 lwb but I dont want to cut up my bed or run a four link. Would rather keep the leafs and my trac bars.

Re: late build thread...LOL

I am still running the stock 35 gallon tank in the stock location, it is about 3 inches off the ground, the frame is about the same. I took the gas tank skid plate off my 4x4 burb and put it on this one so if it drags it is not a big deal, but I still have my hitch on here and it drags before the tank does!
