Hello, I’m a 17 year old Alberta boy from up North and looking for as many tips as I can and I’m new to threads so really any advice I’d love to hear. But here’s my scoop, I have been in love with 2door Tahoe’s/full size blazers ever since I was in middle school. That’s all I talked about and looked at for years until my first job at 15 at Safeway, at 16 I picked up a 1997 2 door tahoe. And want to purse my interest in 4x4 and going fast. Just this summer I did the rap program and worked 350 hours towards my heavy duty apprenticeship. I have done a little bit of reading and basically what I have read is that a k1500 is the worst platform for a prerunner style build. I don’t want anything crazy but something I can have fun with. Mid travel seems to be the way I’m leaning. In people’s experience would it be easier and more cost effective to like get a 2009 chev 1500 4x4 chassis at a wrecker and cut it down to drop my body on. And if so without messing with the fenders. Because I love the straight bodyline I’m not interest in fibreglass fenders. Are there bolt on kits for those frames and which are the best ones for me ? And what about rear suspension? I would like to get rid of the leaf springs in the back weather that be 4link or trailing arm. I want something unique that will also impress my friends and anyone that sees it in the Safeway parking lot. And what I might be looking at cost wise, I think I would want to cage it, knowing the way I drive for my safety. Any advise if love to hear, thanks.
