so i have these humungo 265/65/18 ires on stock 07 escalade wheels. anyways im tired of draggin my tires on my inner fenders and want to drag frame instead. im begining the planning stage of what i need to order and a general plan on how i can make my truck lay with this wheel/tire combo. I would appretiate any advise or pics people could contribute. so far heres what i have planned.
Custom intake to come out and sit right next to the radiator onthe right side of he pass front tire.
get a radiator out of a obs fullsize and one of those can overflows that can mount right to the radiator.
relocate battery under the bed.
raise tranny xmember
notch frame for tie rods
as for the computer and fuse box ideally id love to relocate them to inside my cab but not sure how possible this is.
also my break booster looks like it may cause some troubles and ill need to tub my fire wall. oh not to mention ill be stock floor body dropping the truck a few months after this so id like to have everything set with enough clearance so i dont have to do anything over again just the frame work when its time for the body drop. so does anyone have any pics or advise/suggestions that can make this project any easier?
im guessing this is for a nbs. You dont have to notch your frame for tie rods to clear, your truck has a rack. Your tire calculated to 31.5in. Im bagged on 275/45/20s and i didnt have to tub mine. I'm not sure what you will have to do with that. Maybe a small tub. My tires calculate to 29.75. depending on what year your truck is you might not have to raise the tranny crossmember. I believe the 99 and 00s are flush with the bottom of the frame.sounds good, but be sure to have trailor fenders in or a intake box so you dont throw water in your intake. That is if this is ur dd sorry i couldnt be of more help, but im sure someone will chime in.Custom intake to come out and sit right next to the radiator onthe right side of he pass front tire.
99/5.3/built 4l60e/k&n FIPK/udp/hypertech/dual flows/efans/custom blowthru box/ 20's/ static as of now
your not gonna be able to use the stock air intake box, your gonna have to put a cone filter on the end of the intake, or get a aftermarket oneOriginally Posted by Bigrick31
u don't have to get a obs radiator, u can move the stock over flow tank to where the stock air box is or u can move it next to the a/c lines, some people have just put some small billet overflow tanks in and been fine
u can move the battery forward and move your wiper tank somewhere else or move the battery to the bed
ur firewall has to be tubed
and i would look into bad habit control arms since u want to bd the truck
