hey guys

thought i would share my tahoe build with ya.

sooo here goes




it all started with me wanting to break away from the hard core wheeling thing and start doing more of a expidition style wheeling .

So with a heavy heart i parted out my beloved ***** j and started from scratch all over again

sooooo after messing around with the leaf packs front and rear and by moving the front axle forward 4'' and the rear back 2'' we were able to get her down a little lower and most important level too

total lift is 5'' and she rides nice and soft...
