Mine is built but may be November before it gets the chips and delivered! The times we are living in and dependent on other countries.

I was really excited to see these in the Real World and I don't think I've seen any LEO T1s yet on the roads, the chip shortage having a huge impact on this I'm sure. But I have to say the rear of these SUVs is an absolute travesty. The IRS makes the cabin look like it's got a body lift or something, plus the entire hatch just has too much going on. I loved the clean, simple hatches/doors on basically all GM trucks up until these T1 trucks. The Escalade looks the best, but still looks "jacked up" in the back and the entire rear end/IRS is visible from behind. I love GM but man they botched the T1s in the rear and many employees of GM agree 100%. I live less than 10 miles from the GM Tech Center and my brother works in exteriors in the Performance Studio (one of the leads on the new Hummer) so between him and car club friends I know a lot of GM employees. I can't recall a single person that likes ANY of the T1 platform based SUVs. It was a real bummer, the front looks pretty damn good, extra menacing headlight design, but the rear is just so damn unproportional and "blobby/bloated/busy" looking.

I loved my 2009 SSV and when I saw the K2 version I was floored and wanted one bad. I think the K2 PPV/SSV are the best all around looking Police vehicles ever. Very sleek, with clean and simple lines, but has that "mean" and "in motion" look especially with the black steelies+black center caps. I was actually bummed with the new 20" Steel Wheel design, I wish they could've kept the same design as the 17s and just scaled them up. I REALLY want to do a big brake upgrade and found a few options here but haven't committed to anything cause I think the parts weren't available or the price went up drastically. I really need some different shocks though, my ride is just a little to tight/rough.

Sorry about the rant....lol

Jim,

The biggest thing to me that is strange about the rear ends is the chrome across the lift gate in the rear. Looks very out of place on a police vehicle.

Will these 20x9 steelies work on all year Tahoe’s? Once do my BBK I’ll need at least 20’s to clear the rotors and these would be great for winter time.
