2003 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 (Summit White)

Modifications

Drivetrain
8.1 Vortec GM
Exterior
Replaced rockers and lower quarter panels, starting to rust through. Added NOS 2001 Silverado HD Hood (Raised), removed running boards and added Chevy Silverado step bars. Had to custom build rear brackets. Z71 roof rack, modified with rear spots and red angel eyes brake lights (I think they were for a camero lower valance) Cadillac Escalade rear vents, painted Summit White, Denali type rear tail lamps and removed all original badging. Replaced badging with New Silverado 2500 HD and new Suburban door badging on rear lift gate. Added VORTEC 8.1 decal to hood and Volks wagen 1.8L badging to rear lift gate (Changed to 8.1L) Added bull bar with spots, and raised up to tow hook openings so I could keep the license plate in same spot.

Wheel and Tire
I run 2 sets on wheels and tires (Winter set) for summer I have 2003 H2 Hummer snowflake wheels which are chromed but I recovered them with Dupli Color rubberized paint. the Hummer wheels are 8 inch (versus GM suburban 7 inch) so I could mount a larger tire. I raised up the front with the plow lift about 2 inches for clearance and to level the truck more. My winter tires are mounted on the factory GM 2500 wheels which were also painted black with the rubberized paint. I use the same chrome centers and lugs for each set
