    Default Finally an install! - Pictures of Ultimate Truck Gears Rocker Pods on a 1999 Suburban

    Well, not much time to do a write up right now and I've not even had time to take some great pictures of the Suburban with the new Rocker Pods installed, but I've had too many inquires about how it looks to now put pictures. My PM inbox is getting too full too quick to not post pictures sooner rather than later!

    Here are some preliminary pictures of how the Sarge looks right now with the new push bumper, the new lights, and brand-spankin' new Rocker Pods!!







    If you would like to comment, please do so and feel free to be brutally honest! If you'd rather PM your thoughts, then please go ahead and do so!

    I'll take some better pictures and give an explanation of the install and how everything went in the next few days if I can!

    That is a very good point but when all is said and done it actually doesn't really affect ground clearance. More on that later when I get to posting about the install and how everything works. I know there are quite a few folks that are worried about loss of ground clearance.

    Thanks!

    Looks good. Just as I expected it to. Now, to get a pair for my Suburban. It'll be interesting considering I have the old 80s bodystyle. Congrats and looking good. I look forward to reading how to install those huge bad-boys!

    Well, I have seen it up close and in person and I must tell you for the first time install I believe it looks very well done. The 2" gap you refer to is not that noticable when you see the tread plate shine off the lower part of the paint on the truck, you really don't notice, As mentioned, you could fill that gap with some sort of rubber flap which was thought of by Steve's wife, which is a excellent idea. With a 1" rise and 1" flap,you could compromise, remember, women will get out of the truck and if it 's right on the rocker panel they may catch the heel, same with a rugged work boot. This would also allow for some play room for movement if it goes offroad for adventure.Just a thought?
    The other thing was mentioned by Steve was the mounts for the body and frame, which I think that Doberman has that figured out with his brainstorming with Steve. But they are a handsome addition to his truck, looks as though they will take a beating and come back for more and very well built. So in closing I want to thank the owner of the truck for coming to Florida to get my opinion, LOL. Had a great time with him and his wife........

    I'm gonna warn you that @Springthing hasn't been on for a while, but you might get lucky if you try to PM him. I'll try and look around his posts for you to see if he posted a link for his lights.

    I have checked around his posts and he didn't post up much about his front end conversion. I think it is called a Range Rover conversion. I can't find where he got the parts and such but you should be able to find kits online.
