The six week rebuild is complete. Here is the Sub today at the SEMA Offroad Show.
it i really shiny. bling bling
WOW....... looks sweet
looks like the best truck at the SEMA show. perfect.
VERY IMPRESSIVE LOOKING!! Do you have a spec list somewhere or the build info online to check out? You guys did a great job. Look forward to reading some of the stuff you did to build it.
I will update the web with a build up page. A quick synopsis:
Engine: Full roller 383
Tranny: nv4500 6.34:1 1st gear
ORD doubler np203/205 transfer case twin sticked 205
14ff rear d60 front 4:56 gears detroits front and rear
H1 radial 12 bolt hummer wheels with rock rings
37 12.5 16.5 TSL SSR tires
Our rear truss and front and rear covers
Our new over the driveshaft traction device
Custom transfer case/skid plate combo
We cut and moved up the rear quarter panels to allow the rear bumper to wrap around
The rear bumper weighs around 300 pounds.
Custom gas tank skid that will hold the weight of the truck and is smooth with the bottom of the bumper
Mile marker 12000 pound hydraulic winch
Ameraguard bedliner in the cargo area, rear gate lower door panels and door sills along with the top of the rock sliders
Color matched bedliner on the lower rocker panels
Wet Okole seat covers
Pro Comp MX6r shocks 10 inch travel 8 rear.
Numerous other mods which I am too tired to remember at the present.
Looks good, Steve! You just reminded me of how small my monitor is, however.
cant wait to see it in person tomorrow!
You forgot the 4 wheel disk brakes on your list.
Sweet ride! Your not really going to wheel it on ESJ are you?
I can't wait to check it out in Moab.
It's nice having some Bling isn't it? I've found you can still wheel it and have a good time
without tearing it all up. See you out there Steve.
Sweet rig!! Love the slogan of the company and name of the rig. All the Missouri shape carved into everthing. Glad I jsut ordered the axle truss diff cover combo.
Looks good, and specs look like it'll perform, too.
Take pics while you're there, man. I really wish I could go to SEMA, pisses me off, I was looking forward to it but the full time job calls.
Sub looks really good Steve! You've really put alot of work into it. I can't wait to see some action shots.
P.S. I tried calling you earlier this week, give me a call when you've got time.
digi is in pocket already. gettin ready to head out now.
Looks great!!! Nice job!!!!
Steve the Burb looks great (and still smelled of wet paint ), I like the new anti-wrap bar also. Is that a slip joint or a shock/valve at the front?
Other than the West side of the building (from the club trucks over to the proving grounds), the show was a little disappointing. I was figuring on seeing more of the M.O.Offroad/fabrication, pieces&parts type suppliers and tooling type companies. To see dozons of booths for bed covers, bumper kits, window tenting, work/ladder racks and 20" wheels at an OFFROAD show was disappointing to say the least. There where no tubing bender displays, no welders, no onboard air, no gear companies or diff companys, atlas was there, Warn was not there (there was a T-max Winch company, milemarker had a vendor there), 1 booth with Heim joints (connectors), one booth for assisted steering, and one booth for steering u-joints, there where two companies there with multi-function metal presses/sheers (which I really want now that I've seen one in action!!!), and several companies with windows stickers/vehicle graphics. Overall fairly dissapointing to say the least! We got to meet Steve and checkout the burb that was definatly a highlight, the proving grounds was fun to watch, there was only one bikini model there that I seen, and then there was only only about 4 or 5 other displays that caught my eye/attention for more than a couple minutes.
I guess I didn't miss much then.
I did want to see the MOO Suburban up close and for real though.
i'm with Jeremiah, a little disappointed as an "offroad" show, meeting Steve, and seeing M.O.O. handywork in person made the 3 hour drive well worth the trip. too many "poser" displays, 20"+ wheels, bed covers, neon/LED lights, and how about that "no spill" cupholder! WOW! there's a major automotive breaktrough. was some good stuff, but not near what i expected. Jeremiah, were you there today? or yesterday? i kept my eyes peeled for you, but didnt see you today.
That Burban looked dam good on the floor. That anti-wrap bar was real trick too. The show could have used some more offroad oriented stuff and alot less bling but i didnt think the show was that bad. Between the proving grounds, the MOO suburban and getting some free stuff i thought it was well worth the 4hour drive. I have a few pictures that ill try posting up later.
He's sending me samples because we had on MEDIA/Press passes
we also got free samples from the window tint guys with the CADcutter, I got some free tint for my ZR2 side windows
it was SUUUUP'BURB'
I esp liked the carbon Fiber dash haha
I have some pics once I finish loading up my computer (which is finally up and running!)
