    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if I ever win the lottery I’m just dropping off a truck and a bag of cash at your place to build me a truck. Awesome work

    LST will be the last show as a roller.
    Seats are in place. Will have floor ducting still. Rear seats also will function like stock.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Spent some time working on the tahoe over the last week. Got all the body floor structure finished so I've pulled the body and began disassembly to frame to begin final welding and getting it ready for powder coating. I will be adding shock mounts and air tank mounts that also tie in the rear frame rails more.

    Yesterday had a lot of grinding and clean up involved. Had to modify the passenger side upper arm mount closest to the radiator to clear for an a/c line with the lowered engine. Will hopefully have the plates for all the rear notch joints by this weekend so i can add the cross bars for the shock mounts and the air tank mounts.

    You ever consider doing IRS Brett?

    Would think you could do alot less to the cargo area / bed by keeping the center section low and your pinion angle woukd be fixed

    I would consider it if a vehicle wasnt going to have such wide wheels.

    Good work per usual Brett. Throwing around the idea of static dropping my tahoe and its amazing how little room there is for large tires and modified suspension/gears in the rear, its cramped for a fullsize. Full frame was the way to go, and mods to the door/frame are killer. Bet youll be glad to rip into something with a bed again lol

    Speaking of...you still make those heim TRE's? Wish i woulda kept them when I sold my bagged truck.

    Yeah, the tahoe/suburban and even the avalanches all are really cramped with how the gas tank/4 link/ and frame rails are. It's a challenge when doing these. Surprisingly the doors and rear weren't as bad as I anticipated.

    I can make you a set of you need them
