So I've decided to start a build thread for this customer's truck.

2006 intimidator SS
The trucks came 2wd in this year and they are torsion bar suspension.

Parts
Unparalleled Customs front kit
Unparalleled Customs 3 link
Accuair elevel with ilevel
Dual Viair 480's
8.5 gallon tank
Built to lay 295/35r24's

There were some extensive modifications to the front kit in order to get it to function properly but that was known beforehand. I was doing this to help Cody with setting up a kit for the torsion bar customers out there.

Here some pics

The new wheels he bought

Unfortunately he decided to pass on a deal to get my old bonspeeds from the Avalanche, but I did take a pic

Shouldve gone with the bons or kept what he had. New wheels dnw

The old wheels were ruined. I tried hard to give him my opinion on what looks good but he wouldn't budge.

Customers always right, even when they're wrong. You tried that's all that matters

Yeah, even after showing him this truck, he didn't want the bonspeeds

Badass work. Definitely should have gone with the bonspeeds.

Quick question since you've been working on this truck. Are the lca mounting points on the torsion bar trucks the same width as the lca mounting points on 2wd non torsion trucks?

No, the LCA mounting points are wider and the entire suspension geometry is different. This is the second torsion bar suspension vehicle I have bagged. The first being the Avalanche.

Was this a 1 pc shaft truck? I'm always confused with setting 2 pc shaft pinion angle

Maybe his money wasn't right. I never have been crazy about those wheels. Remind me of irocs

Money definitely wasn't it. He could have got 24x10 bonspeed sweeps with tires for $2500

If I could sell my racelines I'd try to jump on these

They aren't for sale anymore. He was offered the deal first and he didn't take it. Now the chance is gone
