Here's my burb limo project in its own thread. Thought Sublimo would be an apropriate name for it
here's my 1st rough draft of what it could look like
Thoughts on this. I had originally thought a truck limo would be cool and all with a bed... yeah like this more than I think I might a truck at this point. Also as it is there it would be 29' (give or take a few inches) long. So looks like I would have to plan for a 32' long garage as oposed to the 28' length I was going to build. 4' more not that big a deal. Current plans include a C-70 type long flatbed frame for free/cheap locally. Also will be a 4x4. More thoughts and design ideas to follow as they come
I saw a crewcab dually limo in Salt Lake once. I think it had a 1980 grill. Wish I took pictures. Why not if you have the time and resources.
you do know it must be on 44 right?
for proper redneck limo status
Rockwells (front and rear steer) and 53's
would be so sweet, but for practicality's sake, most likely just 30.5" (stock dually tire size is 215/85/16= 30.5" tall). And also would match all the other vehicles I will have when this is done. my 82 and 84 and also the dual wheel conversion suburban project I will look for as soon as I get home
See What You Made Me Do!
played around in Photoshop on a pic of my Burban... Damn you and your SubLimo ideas... GET OUTTA MY HEAD!
tryed to find pics in mag but cant . so here is what thay did. took sub cut back half off , then took back half of crew cab and attached. took wheel tubs out and made floor and closed off wheel whells . put on cut and streched 1 ton 4x4 frame. then put 8 ft box on it. and best of all it was bbc powered and 4x4 up on at least 39.5 or bigger boggers. was a dark violet color. all black tint windows. it was doing a burnout with rear tires. if i find i will post pics.
Make it tall and 'specialize' in bachelorette parties, Then you have to help them into the door....
How about the other way?
I have thought about going the other way and shortening a burb body to fit on a Blazer frame. The idea being to have a hardtop blazer with delivery style rear doors.
