05 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Z71. Fun little truck over the years. Suspension is starting to wear out so here comes the upgrades soon! Currently in the shop for transmission work and then it's back on the road. We affectionately call it Odin

So things are moving slowly but moving at least. New cheap tires are on. Waiting for driveline to be finished then maybe I can get out in a week or two. Been trying to find someone (female) who wants to go camping but seems very hard to find these days. Seems like not a whole lot going on in Oregon anytime soon for Overlanding.

Our steering pump took a dump lol! So we put in a new pump and upgraded the steering box to a PSC unit along with their hydro assist steering. Man is this stuff nice. The steering is so smooth and tight now. Feels amazing on the road and looking forward to getting it off road. Once the forest fires get under control that is.

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?
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

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 mud

Just 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.


My 2006 Tahoe on its maiden voyage to Monache meadows !! Had a great time
