    I am currently in the chassis fabrication/high performance class in Wyotech. We can do a project. I would like to do something on one of my rigs at home but i found one here. its a 78 suburban... I need help generating ideas on what i could do for a project. things range from cages, to 4 links, to high perf. engines... suggestions?

    Well I will let you in on a little secret project I have been planning. Build a custom frame, round tube/rectangular tube/ or combo of both. Then narrow the entire body down the middle. Take several inches out maybe a foot or so. Using a burban body this will be a two seater, passanger sits behind driver

    Then you can chop some of the top if you want to or bob the rear and put 1-tons in it :D .

    Here's a pic of this done to a truck ignore the ugly a$$ bumpers
