Anyone with chopped tops want to share pics?
pretty cool man! have any bigger pics? I def want to do this to my sub down the line. and when I get to that point I'm deg going to bob the rear end too...
sawzall's do wonderful things.
Now that is an awsome job!!! I would have loved to gone that route, but not for this project . Do you have any construction photos?
Unfortunately no - this was my friend's rig - he traded it off over a year ago...
if you look in the gallery under my user name there should be a few pic's of my burb . I have to say that hacking 22+ inches off the a$$ end did great things for my departure angle . If you are gonna seriously wheel it then hack the back off .
Just found this today...

this is my buddy zsolts truck( said zolt)
its a 89 burban, with the tbi, th400, 205 combo. 36 iroks. 4:10s: flowmaster
a real sick truck, stayed runnin these pics and he almost drove out
me standing in front when i was a bit heavier last summer, hahAh he finished his off with the back of the cab, very clean, the wood is temporary
I still see that truck runnin around portland every once in a while. Kinda a hokie setup in my opinion. Sure looks cool though.
What do you think is "hokie" about the build?
Thanks for the info
For me the 20" rims
I agree I would not have lifted it that hich and put the 20's on.
I will have 20's on mine, but they will be attached to 50" Michelins.
Denny McKrill's truck originally featured in FourWheeler April 03 its changed a little.
Well you knew what I meant.
It's a proportion of rubber to metal That I like to see on a wheeler.
Oh yeah baby! I know what ya meant!
That would be like me getting 44" rims for my 53" tires.....
...actually if I do the math...
...let's see carry the one the derivative of 3x^2 is 6x....so it would be like 29" rims for my 53" tires......
Ive seen that truck in person and it just kinda seemed like he just treied to make it "cool". The front shocks are actully coilovers that have no coils and the shock hoops feel like if you shook them hard enough you could brake them off. The intereor seems like it too was in poor shape. I dont know i just wasnt impressed. Like i said i just caugh the "aint my truck cool?" vibe from it.
Who's truck are you referring to?
