History
FBI Suburban
Rescued this FBI Suburban two years ago. Clay barred it, detailed and waxed. Wire wheeled all rust off from underneath. Added Powerstop slotted rotors and pads. Replaced Autoride shocks with Bilsteins. Added touchscreen radio with backup camera and ApplePlay. Everything works as should and no leaks.

Great looking project! Love how the aftermarket radio transitioned in nicely! Find any surprises from the FBI while working on it?

Yeah found some old emergency equipment wiring for the tail lights and driving lights when I replaced them. Instead of a title the truck came with a certificate from GM declaring it an FBI vehicle which I thought was cool. I had to hand that over to the tag office to get a title and tag issued. I would have liked to have kept it.

Forgot to add that I covered the entire truck with plastic and repainted all the plastic minus the running boards. Pulled the roof rack off to do the same. Made a huge difference in the appearance.

I agree, that would have been an awesome momento of the truck's history!
