Family cruiser

Been after something to cruise with the family every now and then, and hopefully use for pulling my other car during show season etc. I really wanted a 73-80 suburban but wanted fi, and some of the updated interior and electronics. So I found a 89, swapped the clip, painted the center a different color, added a drop and some wheels. Still need to bring the rear up a tad and add helper bags and few interior pieces but I have been driving it past few days and really dig it!

Re: Family cruiser

Just my opinion … it looked great before you lowered it and put those stupid wheels and tires on it

Re: Family cruiser

Thats rad man! I love the round eye swap. How much effort was it to swap that front clip?

Not much to it! Fenders bolted right on. Needed to drill one hole to swap the wiper stems, and had to move the core support mount LS forward a hair. Bumper bolted right on minus two mounts but they weren’t needed.

Rear I did a flip kit with a 1.5” Lift shackle. And air shocks with shock extenders.
