    I've been lurking around here a little lately, and I've seen a lot of good info and helpful posts, so I thought I should join. I have a 2003 Yukon XL 1500 4x4. I swapped on the 20" wheels and 275/55/20 tires from a Silverado SS, and cranked the bars a little for clearance. I stripped the roof rails and put a brushed finish on them. Made a new grill for it. Removed the side steps. I made a stainless intake manifold cover to replace the black plastic stocker... Just little stuff so far. I'm just starting to modify it, and not completely certain how I want it to end up...

    Welcome. I like the wheels. Have any shots of your handy work?

    Thanks guys.

    I have a couple pics of the grill and emblems on my phone, I think. That's about it though. I'll take pics of the engine cover when I reinstall it. I'm using mine to test fit a cover for my nephew's Silverado build. My little stick-on GMC decals started falling off the SS wheel center caps, so I cut some aluminum ones on the water jet today to cover up the Chevy bowties. I'll take some pics after I get those on and the roof rack cross rails reinstalled this week.

    Here is a project that I started last week for a coworkers Jeep build. 14.5" OD with a 3.5" dish. Made from .125" 316SS. Looking for the right wood to use on the outer ring.

    Welcome. Should be some interesting metal/fab work with the water jet.
