D-maxalanche project
« on: February 06, 2011, 02:48:27 am »
Well the D-maxalanche project has started. 
I'm starting with a 2003 Avalanche carcass from the wife's AV rebuild. I gutted all the wiring and dash components out of it and removed the so called body from the frame. believe it or not this frame is straighter than the one currently under my 2500. Which is bent/kinked behind the drivers tire, not to mention the other damage being the middle truck in a 3 truck mess.

next I plan to remove the cab and bed off the 05 duramax I recently got at auction. Once the 2 frames are side by side, I'll decide if I use the AV frame as a hole or section the frames together. Using the 05 HD stuff to build it out..So after that is done I'll drop the 02 Avalanche body on the "new" frame, Gut it out and install the 05 wiring and such. Then the best of 3 interiors will go in.  With any luck I'll be painting it this summer.

this is gonna take a bit of time, just keep poking me to get it done.....

First you'll lose your mind
then any free cash laying around
Awesome mods will bloat your credit limits
Acting like a crack addict, refinancing your home, farm out the kids......
You'll cry yourself to sleep, stuff like, must get new rims.
Lift it skyward or drop it like it's hott.
Important questions like, polished or chrome, will shadow you day and NIGHT.
