    very nice, surprised enkei hasnt replied yet lol

    one thing i never cared for about these models is the split fender well, personally i think it'd look better if the body cladding went all the way up and around the wheel well arch, the smooth painted top portion a;ways looked tacky to me

    Those older Avalanches had WAY too much of that ugly gray body cladding. Most of the older ones I see the body cladding has this whitish grey fade to it. The newer ones that look like a Suburban with a bed look WAY better.

    yeah,,,, sort of, this is on the right track but i mean the whole thing, so it looked like one continious flare. these remind me of the metal rear wheel well covers you use to see on cars from the 50's, which i thought were sweet, but not quite the look i meant.

    Which brings me to another topic i'd been meaning to ask:

    OK so say you install a 6" lift for example, typical lifts only drop your LCA's and you still have the same amount of wheel travel, your tires are just 6" lower than before. That leaves alot of un used wheel well, using the same idea as what you showed in the pic, how sweet would it look to have those filling the space back in so from the side you dont see the monster hole in the side where the tire use to reside?

    Kind of the same idea as having a body lift and then going ahead and installing a body kit to cover up the frame, or step bars as most people do.

    Yeah if there was a kit that was all one piece up front for the wheel well it would look cool. Otherwise, I think the lines from the separate pieces might look funky and too chopped up

    Interesting find, [MENTION=58086]kinson33[/MENTION]. Too bad the owner didn't finish it (no 4WD). It makes me wonder why it's for sale. I'm not buying the 'too anxious to get back on the road' commentary; you don't go through all of that work only to half-bake it at the end. Something just smells wrong...
