SS Suburban Project "SPARKY"

We at DuraBurb aint haters and here is proof

We ended up with a witches brew of parts so rather then sell it all off we thought we would throw it all in the pot and stir it till it smokes.

Here is the goal


This is how it started, we needed a 2500 SUV frame for a LBZ Escalade ESV we are building for a client and came across this at auction.


With 256K mi on the clock and totally base it isn't worth much but to nice to cut up for parts


So here is the concept


What makes a SS SILVERADO a SS, its the front clip/LQ9 drive train/wheels/interior

OK well we have my wife's 59K mi Escalade ESV frame sitting here with a LQ9 and AWD drive train so first step is to harvest our SUV frame for the upcoming Escalade project



Now we can transplant the 2500 Sub over to the 1500 SS frame
The new SS Silverado hood, fenders, and bumper are against the wall behind that 2009 LMM roll over Silverado in the back ground.



This a lot of work but this SUV is just to STRAIGHT to cut up


Stay tuned and see this street beast come together

OK, but you're not going to put that funky, slant eye front end on it, are you?
Got into it with my dad a little while back. I was telling him about my '06 GMC and he said he just couldn't figure out why anyone would buy the GMC over the Chevy. I looked at him and told him in no uncertain terms it's because the front of those mid-00 trucks look like dog ass to me.

You do realize how funny that sounds? And you are probably the only one who can say this with a straight face.

Keep it up! Love your work.
