been busy ~ who hasn't? Love my Chevy & GMC Forum
hey all. i havent been able to log on for about a month. im in between homes atm but that still has not stopped me from working on the burban. i found alot of engineering faults with the procomp 6inch lift kit and have added about 80-100 of steel to correct these faults. i still have the k-bar links to fab and will post pics in the tech forums once im done.
i also learned how to rebuild the alt since mine fried and i got a rebuild kit for $23.
The sound system has grown to a near insane level. ill be posting pics of all the new stuff once im done with the pretty up work. to include wires and all i have added near 600lbs of sound equipment. i recently got back with the exwife and she claims that the system gives her multiple pleasurable moments. its powerful enough that 300yards away from the house its knocking stuff off of shelves and dropping pictures from the walls. watch out old people here i come, a red neck blasting country at an extreme level.
my next project is to make new sun visors out of plate aluminum.
after im done with that im installing the cowl induction hood scoop, insulating the interior for acoustic purposes, making a mounting system to support 2 alternators, upgrading the tranny cooler system, and black out the rear windows to prevent window shoppers.
will be posting back with finished pics. take care.94 sub 6inch lift 34inch bfg mt. massive rework project soon. the audio system hit 150.3db so now its time to rebuild and try for 155db. mudpuppy is also getting a new engine, rebuilt ifs, dual 500amp 15.1vdc alts, 5 5,000amp batts, ant the combined wattage with the new system should be close to 15,000watts. this is going to be a wild ride boy and girls.

i could only find these change pics. ill have to take some news pics of the front suspension upgrades that i made and installed, and the 4 bose 6.5's. the subs are Audioque sdc 12 2.0 series. 2 yellow top batts and 1 red top. about another 150lbs of wires to run everything. rebuilt the alt myself to 180amp output. replaced the stock tranny cooler with a giant after market cooler with a 12inch cooling fan and both thermal and manual control relay system. the current inwork projects are:
adding an audioque hdc3 12 and build the box as we speak
adding 4 aq pro-audio 6.5's
adding 2 aq pro-audio super tweeters
adding 2 cadence 8inch mid-bass drivers
already made 4 additional new body mount brackets, still working on distribution plates to assist in supporting all of the additional weight from the sound system.
rebuilding to stock spec, all new parts even down to the sensors another 350 for when/if this engine ever blows.
like i said before, i have been working on the t-bird for the past 2 years. now its mudpuppy's turn. ill be the loudest redneck in the mud puddle.

I don't know why I didn't read this thread sooner. Holy crap that's a lot of work you're putting in that burban. I love seeing that. That's my plan with my 09. As much as I'm interested to see what the 2014 model year has to offer, I've always loved the idea of having a truck that is completely mine in design and customizations rather than the same truck millions of others have. Nice job.
To Be Completed (Eventually):
6" BDS Suspension lift | KingShocks Front and Rear Coil Overs | 4.56 Gears | 35" A/Ts (TBD) | Cervinis 07-12 Silverado Ram Air Hood | Fab Fours Front Winch Bumper (CS07-H2051-1) | Fab Fours Full Size Rear Bumper (CS07-W1850-1) | RX-2 Series Main Grille (Black) | Line-x Bed and wheel wells | Skid Plates | Rizor Automated Tonneau Cover | Custom Bed Insert | RBP RX-3 Series Nerf Bars | Kenwood Excelon DNX9990HD | JL Audio Stealthbox (2x500RMS) | JL Audio HD 1200/1 Class D Mono Amp | JL Audio C5-653 Components (Front) | JL Audio C5-650 Components (Rear) | JL Audio Slash v2 300/4v2 Class A/B Amp

mudpuppy, that burban wil be rocking, thats for sure.
and jeremy, I completly feel ya on making it YOUR truck vs. the same as most everyone else. part of the reason I custom painted the rims I got, so its MY truck vs. a white 05 sierra with rockstars or soemthing, cause those are common, my rims are one of a kind.
