I love the 78/79s. That is one very clean machine. I am now looking for another one. Hopefully with a 4 speed. The wife pulled the reigns on my planned rebuild on my 79. So it’s either another bronco or a 78/79 f250.
What do you think of the tires?
As far as on the road these are great tires, they’re wearing nicely very low road noise rain and a little bit of snow we got didn’t seem to affect them. I’ll let you know after this weekend how they do in the dirt and the Georgia mudWhat do you think of the tires?
I have a 95 suburban 2500 and I'm considering the same meats for my rig.
I've narrowed it down to three options and the wild peak is one of them
My 2006 Tahoe on its maiden voyage to Monache meadows !! Had a great timeJust getting into overlanding and learning. What I do notice is the lack of full sized SUV and trucks. Just wondering who out there is like me rolling in a GMT800 2500 Suburban.
Here is my 2003 Chevy Suburban 2500:
So far ive done some basic suspension work. Congnito leveling kit w/upper control arms, Fox 2.0 monotype shocks, and keys to get 2.5" lift. Then the Congnito steering brace kit that every GM owner should do regardless if lifted or not. Also added the BFG K02 all terrains 285/75/16 essentially 33" tires.
Next up will be to do the 1.5" block and u bolt along with the Fox 2.0to finish out the rear end. Looking to also do the Bilstein steering stabilizer then HD idler arm, inner outer tie rods etc. One more item for the HD setup that will smooth out the ride would be the Silastic shackles/isolators.
