    A couple of us were talking about doing this earlier on Suburbans. But given the extra bit of cargo area we have we didn't have to loose the rear seat.

    How much extra ground cleanance have you gained out back now? Does the tank hang below the frame at all or is it tucked up nice and high now?

    Those pictures will be really appriciated for those of us getting ready to attempt something similar. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    the back opened up soooooooooo... nice, the tank is above the driveline, i put the skid plate on underneeth so if the driveline snaps or so it wont rupture the tank, all i have to say is the floor is really thick but i am glad i did it /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif ask if any more questions /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
