    01 Silverado lowered on 22"x9" stock Escalade fronts and replica 24"x10" rears, I know the Escalade thing is played out, but this is going to be my daily, and I want luxury!
    Still have to install my ART coilover setup in front, and my Nfamus 3 link converted to coilovers in the rear.
    I also started swapping an Escalade interior, just waiting on my carpet.

    Do you plan on using that grill and headlights?

    I want to run a billet grill I saw several years ago, the fins are almost vertical, kinda looks like a rising sun! Still trying to locate one. I am going with stock Escalade headlights with the chrome bezel.

    How low are you planning on going with the coil overs?

    What does that front piece thats attached to the wishbone attach to? Looks way to narrow to be a cross member.

    What are those, street scene mirrors?

    I could dig it. In for progress.

    It goes about half way across, welds to the curb side frame rail, and attaches to the flat plate with all the holes, after you cut the rear gas tank crossmember!

    Gas filler moved to bed rail, flip door shaved and skim coat on 3rd brake light, I had 4 tiny pin holes.
