    Default What do you get when you cross a Land Rover and a Suburban?

    My new grill!

    Just received this grill/lights combo this past week. I may have to think about painting the suburban flat black in order for it to all mesh together really well! lol

    Actually, I think it will look a lot better when I'm done with the front end. I want to get a pushbar for the front with a few round offroad lights. That will tie it all together, IMO.

    wow I have never seen that before! I agree with you that some offroad lights will make it looks awesome! How tough was the wiring?

    Plug and play, pretty much.

    Had to lengthen the top parking light and then the new side/corner lights had to be wired to the existing corner light wiring (the bulb that goes to the original corner light is the one below the headlights.

    I'm guessing it won't appeal to most people but I've never seen that front on a suburban before (bonus points for unique) and it looks really nice all lit up. I tried to load a short video clip on youtube but didn't have the patience for the hoops I had to jump through.

    Very nice. You'll have to change your signature to read 1999 Suburban LR3-LT though.

    I saw that conversion on Sport Truck Direct, but it was in chrome instead of black. It definately makes your truck look totally different, it's always nice to see someone step outside of the box! Great job
