    Howdy from San Antonio! A few years ago I parted out my my slammed 6-speed 2004 Tahoe after a hail storm turned it into a golf ball and then the spider gears in the rear axle shattered. Since then I've been itching to get another family hauler with third row. Throughout all my searching I kept coming back to the Tahoe, so this past Friday I drove home my new-to-me 2003 Tahoe LS. The interior and exterior aren't half bad. It's only got 147k on the clock but third gear and fourth gear are gone, which made driving from Austin to San Antonio very interesting at night on back roads. I pulled it in the garage tonight and it went under the knife for it's first mod of upgrading the transmission. After that's done and I've collected the next group of parts I'll be doing a 5/6 drop.

    Welcome back Andrew, looks like a nice ride and now you can build that trans as you like. What are your other plans for it?

    Welcome back to the forum from Oregon


    We recommend that you put all your rig(s) info in your signature so we all don’t have to guess at year, make, model, engine size, trans, rear axle locker…….etc. While you may have posted pertinent info in your first post, you may forget to do it again and the info is needed by us anyway. Makes it way easier on all members that attempt to help, to have that info right up front. It is also recommended that you take a pic of your RPO codes, on the inside cover of the glove box, and post that image in your signature. All this info will greatly help those that will try to help with a problem.


    If there is any other info, like upgrades, mods or recent mechanical/maintenance work done, that would be helpful in any post as well. Too many times a question is asked by the poster and after about 10 responses we find out that the poster has done recent work to attempt to fix the problem or work that was done that SEEMS not related to the problem.

    Super jealous of the 6-speed swap. I want that in mine so badly.

    Thank you to everyone for the warm welcome. This Tahoe community is one of the big reasons I got another Tahoe. I have already torn into this Tahoe on Sunday and here's my checklist of where I'm at as of lunch break today:
