    I've always really liked those old Suburbans, especially with some tasteful mods! Very jealous!

    Thanks again yall.

    Here's what I got so far. 4" front springs, 4" ORD rear shackle flip w/NOS spings,14B SF 6 lug rear with detroit locker, 4.56 gears, 35x12.50s, new headliner, new rubber mat instead of carpet kit, headers, true duals, and a cowl hood. After I get it riding right, I plan to do the body work and give it a paintjobs. I'm hope this will be a fast budget friendly build.

    Where'd you get the new headliner? I've looked around a bit and the retro fit ones tend to be a bit pricey. :-/

    One of the guys I ride Jeeps with owns an upholstery shop. If I take it down and clean the headliner board of the old stuff, he'll put material on it for the cost of the material and 20.00 bucks.

    Take down your headliner board and clean the old crap off and call a couple of local shops to see what the will put new material on it for you. They shouldn't charge to much.

    To be honest I thought about an upholstery shop, but I made the assumtion that it would be as expensive or more so than buying the retro stuff from the aftermarket company's. So instead I just planned on buying some material and doing it myself to see how well it comes out. But now that you mention it, I guess I could make some calls and see if my assumtions were wrong.

    According to Ken, Taking it down, cleaning up the board,and reinstalling is the expensive part. I will let you know how much material was needed and the cost of the material next week, to give you an idea on cost for yours.
