    Only thing I plan on doing to this other than driving it is probably keep an eye out for a 6-lug 14SF with discs. :D

    LOL.. Ya, I know.. But I got a good deal on it and the leather is nice! :D My one friend asked when it was getting lifted. I said never. :) I'll leave the lifts and such for my other rigs.

    The back has damn near enough room for one! :) 4ft x 4ft behind the rear seat!


    Ok, maybe never was the wrong choice of words... But it wont get anything like that until way down the road, after it's paid off and I could maybe afford to do those mods! :) But it would be a diesel!

    I put a 6 lug FF with discs in my buddies tahoe. There was a member here that turned the 8 lug FF hubs in to 6.
