    Hey everyone. Had an account for awhile but for some reason never started a build thread even though I have been working on this thing nearly 4 years. So since I still am building it I figure I might as well post it. Been taking pictures of mostly everything I have done since I bought it almost bone stock in 2016. I’ll try to get everything posted as I did it till now.

    Always enjoyed Tahoe’s and after 20 something vehicles over the years I finally decided to get one as a daily driver. Well never expected it to go as far as it has and it’s now my daily/audio competition vehicle that I have put more time and money into than anything else i have owned.

    Found it at a local stealership 01/30/2016 120k miles, charcoal two tone interior and barn doors. Got it for 500 under blue book at the time. Only aftermarket thing it has was a flowmaster 40 series in place of the factory muffler. C5317C8B-CA0D-426B-B336-5A3CADC78F82.jpeg
    of course the first thing that had to go was those Denali 17’s. So the next day I Went down and got a cheap set of black rhino glamis wheels to throw on. 046D6DC8-2E2D-4AE9-B658-522111BB4D1F.jpeg

    next day was time to take the steps off 92F6F4B7-580D-446B-A54A-425D03E7F944.jpeg 89A6DC5E-CD99-476D-997D-E97E81C61C6B.jpeg

    2/6/16 I said this was my sound comp rig now. Always put some type of audio in my vehicles in the past but never thought having this Tahoe would lead me to competing with it. Anyways I always wanted focal components so I finally put some in this. Also had 2 alpine type rs laying around with a hifonics “1800” watt amp. Naturally those were the first things to get put in. Around this time I also did a big 3 upgrade and by passed the factory amp behind the glove box. 428F5958-44B8-4019-BDA0-B9FF698B572F.jpeg 86E9EB2B-F098-43E4-B98B-B2D871B95214.jpeg E89065C2-A8DC-46B3-9653-CA374FFD9E54.jpeg 8FB27CB2-57CE-405B-9969-0D68DE63048C.jpeg 4E083A3F-F9B0-442D-97F2-52EB3BC322BE.jpeg

    5/13/16. Started to get more into higher end audio equipment. Went down to the local weld supply store and got enough 2/0 weld cable to replace my 4ga(which in the pics below you will see why) also was my first lesson on correct wire size/fusing. Sundown scv2000 amp and 2 sundown sa12’s were put in.

    5/27/16 ordered a full led kit off amazon. Surprisingly enough most of these bulbs for the overhead lights still work. The 194’s that came in the kit were cheap though and didn’t last. B454AE75-A722-4C2F-9318-061ACFFBEBE4.jpeg
    5/29/16 drove down to a stereo shop about a hour away to use their sound pressure level meter. First time on the meter. 144.5 DB was the best I could squeeze out of it. The installer there(now my teammate)informed me of surf city sound competition and a local audio page on Facebook. This was the day I decided I was gonna start getting into audio more.

    Also figured out how easy it was to put leds in my cluster, my buddy stickered up a dash bezel for his 06 duramax not realizing it was a 1 1/2 din meant for 99-02. So I got that from him and finally got rid of my factory cassette for the pocket which I put my bass knobs. 1733B899-FCD3-4489-9A5A-5BE5B62F051E.jpeg 244F7950-0265-4DBD-9E9B-AAD44D2D21E0.jpeg 1416FD6F-D333-4FB0-A790-BDA0D577B690.jpeg

    7/9/16 painted the factory emblem black. Then a couple weeks later found another grille and painted it black. My buddy owned a graphics and screen printing company. Originally called hooligan Motorsport then changed to hooligans design once he actually got more serious about it. So that’s what the big HM on the back windows is for. 882639FA-7790-4BC0-BBB1-75420CAFAB1C.jpeg A0D4789C-40BF-4A3F-AB98-E890931FA59E.jpeg 6E7A90D1-F1DD-44C8-B513-F222B6DFD74C.jpeg D0BFD193-3698-4529-8F14-1D55B9C407CE.jpeg DCE73411-86F3-45A2-ADFF-784581292E97.jpeg

    7/23/16. Went to a local import chicks show where I heard they were having a sound competition. First one I entered and to my surprise got first place in my class hatchback/suv 1. After this show I was hooked and circled the drain of the black hole that is car audio .also did a 2/0 big 3 and a new amazon special “150” amp alt that didn’t put out nearly what it said it did 457C19A9-C5BB-46F4-9AE7-7189AF5B1C15.jpeg 5D25ED2F-483D-4294-9F5C-ED425797EF7F.jpeg 423D06AE-5858-4183-B09C-B92B1D9B1818.jpeg
    8/20/16 found a pair of mechman 270 alternators on Craigslist and swooped those up. 1D9522E7-A4A4-4CE6-B825-6BE3518AC845.jpeg BCE534E3-8CBC-48D7-871D-9464DE9EED89.jpeg
