    used aftermarket fenders without holes. they were a waste of money, they were very light gauge material with sharp edges and fit terrible. they were pulled off and replaced with factory fenders found at a salvage yard. cheaper and fitment wasperfect and easy to install. i then had to remove the cladding and shave the holes

    purchased djm drop spindles from stylin concepts that came in damaged without me noticing until 6 months later when its time to install. stylin did not want to help in any way. instead they offered to sell me a new set of spindles at 40% off, which ends of posting more than what i payed for them originally. thanks alot stylin.
    djm agreed to replace them however, shipping costs were $50+ to california from florida. they soon changed their minds with helping and i ended up having to repair. they didnt even want to help me with a rethread die. anyway, they were repaired and i swapped them with the belltech spindles that were already installed to pull the wheel in a little more. the djms pulled the wheel in about .25" from the belltech spindles. i took pictures of the difference but i cant find them right now. i will post later if anyone cares to see.

    Re: i3owdown's 2DR Tahoe Build (slammed on 22s)

    now to the back suspension. the main goal is to lay frame out back but most importantly, keep my rear seat. i have seen too many 2 door builds without the rear seat. in fact, i have yet to see one keep the factory rear seat. i did some math and i should also be able to keep the rear plastic panels without cutting for wheel tubs. this is where i am currently at in the build.

    a 1988-1998 gm 1500 series bolt on parallel 4 link and cantilever package was used. the forward bars where cut back and re-threaded. the cantilever bracket was cut down and shortened. the bag bracket needed to be moved towards the back 5" and new holes where drilled to mount the lower cantilever bar 1.75" farther back. the lower cantilever bars were also shortened.

    the factory gas tank was too wide to fit the panhard bar so i purchased a tank from a 2000 2 door blazer. it is less deep and should provide enough space for the panhard bar. it also doesnt hang as low below the rollpan as factory tank.

    Re: i3owdown's 2DR Tahoe Build (slammed on 22s)

    that is it for now. thats 1.5 years in the making. should be complete to debut at unite 2011.

    things to do: finish modifying and installing 4-link, weld in cross members on c-notch, mount new gas tank and figure out hook up. fabricate and weld in new sheet metal tubs, notch cover, and driveshaft cover.

    i am using a 00 2 door blazer tank for my 99 2 door tahoe. should be pretty straight forward to mount. using stock crossmember in the rear and welding in a new one up front. one pigtail on the sending unit is the same (assuming its the electrical for fuel pump) the other is different but have pigtail to match, no big deal. two of the nipples for fuel connections are the same but the one in the middle is different. my tahoe nipple has a flange on the end of it, the blazer doesnt. what can i do to retrofit fuel line to new sending unit. they are both plastic so i dont trust clamping down hose to nipple. any ideas?

    That is a clean hoe and props on all the work you have done!

    As far as the fuel line there might be a connection point between the tank and the front of the truck before it gets to the motor...Trace it out, and you probably can pull the whole line and swap it for you style... Or I would look at swapping the Pump over to the new tank... that would solve allot of issues... Dunno if it helps I have never worked on a 2door hoe but that is just a thought...

    Awesome job i3 , it looks amazing.
    I have been wanting a 4-link for my 2dr for years with the same ideas to keep my seat and not have to modify the rear section much if at all.

    Quick question, just looking for others opinions especially ones who have experience in this department.
    From a performance/DD point of veiw. What do you think of a tri-4-link something like thiese for our trucks? Otherwise I'll more than likely be using SDs parallel 4-link http://www.suicidedoors.com/4-link-k...lel-4-link-kit

    Thanks man
    Great work.
