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/

I used to drive a 1995 Suburban... LOVED that truck! Now it is retired except for large family outings... I'll see if I can find some pics to post.

My DH is trying to convert my Nova into an SS clone... LOL

That's a cool project TB.I have a '96 Caprice project that I'm slowly trying to convert to an Impala SS clone/hot street/strip/auto x car.If/when you start doing engine mods you should check out PCMforless.com .It's a company that reprograms the pcm for mods like gear/tire size changes,cam changes,bigger injectors,etc.Has your Dad had any transmission problems yet?My car has had the trans rebuilt twice and lots of fuel pump problems.I hope to completly rebuild the suspension along with lowering springs,aftermarket control arms,sway bars,etc this summer.

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..

srry.

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?

trailblazer, I'm not trying to be an a-hole about this. I'm not trying to bust your balls. I was just stating my opinion...if you don't like it, you don't have to acknowledge it...

To me, SS means it has a lot of performance to back up the looks. Exhaust and intake don't qualify as big-time performance in my book. However, I'm a big-time car and truck enthusiast (Jeeps and Tahoes in particular), so it takes a lot more to convince me or to gain my liking than it would the more common person. If you and your dad like your Suburban, that's all that matters. If it were up to me, I would change a few things, but this is your project, so have fun and make it how you want...there's nothing better than saying "I designed/built it myself."

And for the record, I was NOT going to bash your quad. I'm behind you on that project, it seems like it's a great learning process and a ton of fun as well.

Ok people.... :policeman: Let's take a deep breath and let it out slowly! Everyone has a right to post opinions, after all that's why you posted this project, right TB? I am begining to feel like I am in a preschool with all the :cry: hurt feelings going around on this site... :huh::confused: Let's have a group hug and if you don't like what someone said, ignore it! Bashing only works if it gets a response...

im just saying.

most of the SS's have V6s anyway. [edit: let me take that back. the new ss has a 6.0 liter ls2.]

we have a Vortec V8 in this sucker.

that alone makes it about as powerful lol

it is custom paint btw.

you'll never see suburban like this one believe me lol.

      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.
