Does that burb have the 454 in it? Or are you just putting SS decals on? My father-in-law gave us a

F150 that has the police interceptor in it(motor they use in police cars) with dual flowmaster pipes and a super chip/

Just out of curiosity, do you guys buy your aftermarjet parts online, through a catalog like (jegs, summit), or at an autoparts store?

I used to have an 86 Transam and an 84 Camaro.

actually the filter and the exhaust was on it when we got it..

and the taillights,and the silver chevy emblem came from a little autoparts store and we got the newer 20's from a guy my dad knows..so no..no parts online..

I get most of my stuff from local parts stores but I have had luck on Ebay. I haven't purchased much through regular online vendors.

Nice looking truck, except for the taillights.

Paint it flat black and lower it a little...then it will be "SS" worthy.

tailights are bitchin'.

flat black is ugly.

and we are lowering it.

and it is already "SS Worthy"

we even have a set of 20'' rims that were on the SS.

o yeah. my dad mentioned putting duals on it.

hope he follows through =]

How is it "already" SS worthy? Just because of the wheels and altezza taillights?

SS used to be about appearance AND performance. Your Suburban has very small power modifications done. How does it qualify as an "SS?"

yes i said before [proves you people dont pay attention] new duals might be coming.

not anything HUGE like a supercharger but enough.

just quit breakin balls.

if you dont have anything nice to say about what were doing.

then just dont take the time to type it.

its not a place to bash anything.

we dont mean SS like "OMG ITS LIKE AN SS ZOMG IT MUCT DO LIKE 297423!!?!"

they just odnt make a tahoe/suburban SS and its fun to do custom paint,ss rims,hood, couple of performance parts and call it SS for fun.

SO, if you have anything negetive.

pm me.

noone wants to see you bash stuff.

i supose your gonna go to my quad thread and bash that too right?

    • Tires, and Rims: out with the old, in with the new

      So I wanted to start a thread about modifications on ATVs OR SXSs that makem look sick or run better.  It can be any modification from new handlebar grips to a winch to an added lightbar, but I was focusing on tries and rims.  Here are some of my simple additions to my Bayou 300:  I put looker front shocks on it, added a 2500 winch, replaced the headlight with a blinding 6in light bar, and added new and bigger rims and tires:  and just for clarification, all the pics are of it with the lightbar on it, the last one is of the stock headlight.

    • ATV Front End Alignment How To

      Here's a good article and video on the basics when it comes to ATV front end wheel alignments. Source: http://www.cyclepedia.com/manuals/online/free/steering/atv-front-end-alignment/ When you hear the words front end alignment what comes to mind? Automobiles and potholes may be the first thought. There are other four wheeled vehicles out there running over a lot more than potholes. ATVs and side-by-sides live hard lives crawling over rocks, hauling loads, and crossing trails no other man-made vehicle would dare. One of the most basic services these vehicles call for is the adjustment of the toe-in of the front wheels. The Suzuki Eiger LT-F-400F calls for this to be checked initially after 100 mi. or 1 month of use, and every 600 mi. or 3 months for the rest of its operational life. Be it a Yamaha Banshee, 50cc mini-quad, or Kawasaki Mule this is a periodic maintenance item that is essentially the same no matter the scale of machine. Toe-in specifically refers to the amount the front wheels are pigeon toed. At axle level the center of the front tires are closer in the front than in the back. Most ATVs and side-by-sides call for the front wheels to be slightly pigeon toed to parallel. Keeping the toe-in aliment in specification and adjusted correctly is important for performance, safety, and tire wear. If the front end of the vehicle is in a toe-out position, duck footed, the tires will wear more rapidly and the vehicle will be inherently unstable. In addition, if the toe-in adjustment is in specification but it has been improperly adjusted it may put excess strain on the steering components.   The first step in checking the toe-in is to check the tire pressure. Make sure the tire pressure set correctly in all four tires. The air pressure in the front tires should be as close to the same as possible. Place the vehicle on a level surface and position the steering straight ahead. Be sure to check with the appropriate service manual to see if there are any extra specifics for the vehicle. The Suzuki Eiger for example calls for the vehicle to be weighted as to simulate the rider. Make a chalk mark on the front, center of each front tire at the height of the front axle. If available set up a toe gauge so that the pointers line up with the chalk marks. Measure the distance between the front chalk marks. Record this measurement as A. Rotate the front wheels 180° so the marks remain at axle height, but are now facing to the rear. Record the distance between the marks on the backside of the tires as B. Subtract the front measurement A from the rear measurement B to calculate the toe-in. If the number is negative you have a toe-out condition. Compare your toe-in figure with the factory specification found in the vehicles service manual. To adjust the toe-in loosen the lock nuts on the tie-rods. The outer tie-rod lock nuts often have left hand threads. Turn the tie rods with a wrench at the flats to change the toe-in. Be sure to evenly adjust the left and right tie-rods for proper alignment. Check with the service manual to see if there are any specifications for the length of the tire rods or the amount of threads that should be showing. If the tie-rods are not adjusted according to the OEM specifications the proper toe-in may be achieved, but the vehicle will not steer correctly and it could be at risk of breaking a tie-rod. When the adjustment is correct hold the tie-rod flats and tighten the lock nuts to specification against each side of the tie-rod. Take a slow test ride to make sure the steering functions correctly.   Check out this additional video on ATV wheel alignments:

      I have a Motobecane 50cc moped that needs a home. I picked it up a few years ago for a restoration project but never got around to it. It is complete and would be an excellent father - son project. All the parts needed are available at "treatlandtv.com". If interested it is yours for the taking. I am located in Maryville, Tn.

      Bought this 1995 Yamaha Moto-4 350 from my wifes cousin the other day for 200 bucks... carb needs rebuilt, new intake manifold, ignition switch, petcock, brakes, battery and tires. I figure I will spend around 500 in parts... so I will have 700 in it.. do you guys think that is an ok deal? I know it looks pretty rough. But enjoy cleaning and painting. I already have the paint scheme I plan on putting on it in my mind.
      THanks guys.

      Scored this today, it's a 91 Warrior, PO claims to have a lot of new guts in it. Swingarm bushings are shot. Turns over, and looks pretty straight. traded a 78 XS11 dresser and a 76 Xt500 for it.
      the dresser had been up on kijiji for a few months at 750 with a few tire kickers but no takers, and the XT was a 100 dollar deal.
      Stupidest thing was, the xs runs on 2 holes, and I kicked the bejeezus out of the xt last nite.. The xs fired right up, and the xt started 2 kicks. Still hated both of them and glad they are gone.

      Just a new question of opinion to assist a new rider. I want to get a 4 wheeler and my fist choice of the three is small project but my main concern is availability of parts. Option two would be used but then there is the problem with ATVs not knowing how to swim. Don't really want to but one that drowned and got mouth to mouth. Last would be new. Opinions and experiences welcome.

      02 prairie 300 has a pull knob beside the idle adjustment knob. Any one know what it's for I'am unsure. The choke is on the handlebars . It's popping back thru the carb & backfiring out the exhuast. The seller said he had the carb cleaned and he put seafoam in the tank.
