So I'm guessing you would have to take a 2500 burb and work the magic and then put the Escalade body on it?

Wow...

Well it’s a little (well no, A-LOT) more involved then just buying a 2500 frame and slipping it under. The Body mounts on the 2500 frame are in different locations too. It takes a full day to do the work, but since GM builds on a global platform all SUVs have the ability to be 1500 or 2500. Interestingly even the Tahoe body, however I digress as I may be giving away a little too much info on surprise builds planed for next year.

Anyway the point is, yes you can turn a 906 from 2500 to 1500 or vise-versa, you do however need to install all the necessary hardware so it will bolt up just as GM would built it. I have seen others do rebuilds of 2500 salvage title SUV’s at the auction and they just skip the body mounts that don’t line up (when using a 1500 body) and that is just wrong no to mention a liability hazard, our trucks usually receive far more then the normal attention by the public and someone would catch the missing mounts not to mention its just plain shotty workmanship that we have no tolerance for. Yes when wrapped up this will be a OEM 2500 Slade.

Oh did I mention? Yea its a PLATNIUM

Well 2500 SUV frame is under the ESV and almost completed, Now Iím learning what reputable rebuilders like Hwood (on this forum) and his old man go through, as I say you can toss anything together your self but to do it RIGHT takes twice as long and cost twice as much. Iíll ware the torque wrench out on this one, many thanks to my buddy Alan @ our local GM dealer for the frame spec sheets, you donít realize how many bolts are in these frames until you build one. Good God this is a lot of work.

So if you just wanted to leave it a 1500 but wanted the Duramax, it would be a lot easier, TDI?
