That is one sharp looking ride! Did you have to use adapters for those wheels? Love the tailgate. Did you graft Envoy taillights?

Thank you much! No adapters used, direct bolt on. Barely cleared the ball joint. 24x10's +35 offset. No didn't graft Envoy tail lights

My bad, must be the LED type that made them look like Envoy's. Still looks good.

Where did you get those wheels? Not too many around that are in this platform's bolt pattern.

Tell me about it lol, there's literally nothing for this bolt pattern. The few things they do have are rims that aren't very cool looking IMO. I got these rims from Diablo, they sell them blank, then drilled to your bolt pattern.

I don't remember who it was, that was asking about cleaning up the back side of these trucks, but this is a perfect example of what you can do (with a considerable amount of work)

Now just get rid of that silver fuel door. It makes the car look cheesy and takes away from the cleanliness of the car.

That looks great now!

Thank you. The front consists of SS springs, DJM modified upper arms, & Belltech drop struts set at 2 inch drop. The rear has the 30.5 springs from NORCAL SS.
I've got the same set up. I also have the spohn pan hard bar and rear control arms. How's the rear wheels centered in the wheel well with out adjustable rear control arms?

I have the spohn panhard bar too, but not the rear control arms. Actually on stock wheels, it's more noticeable that they aren't centered. On the 24's, it hides it a bit. Maybe it's a combination of the bigger diameter wheel & also that it lifts the truck about 1/2 inch, from stock wheel height. Supposedly the lower you go, the more the rear tires push forward without the control arms.

Mines is the lowered level envoy the SS is my brother-in-law's at stock height and wheels. Any reason you haven't painted your D pillar white or vinyl wrapped?
Sharp lookin trucks, yours has a nice stance, lookin clean. And I'm always a fan of the red calipers, clear corners, & drilled & slotted rotors too. Your brother in law's needs a bit lowering & it'll be set. I haven't painted the D-Pillar because i dont quite dig that look, Ive seen a few white Yukon's around town with white D-Pillars & It looks a bit off to me, idk. To each their own. And I know I have the window lower sills painted white, but now when I see other white trailblazers with the stock black window sills I think it looks unattractive, lol go figure

I just think the rear quarter glass & back glass are meant to blend together, or atleast if they come manufactured that way from factory, like they do in most older SUVs. Didn't want to "separate" them by painting the D-Pillar white lol

Sorry to disappoint but my calipers aren't red and neither is any part of the suspension. This is my wife's daily and we both decided to go this route and do something different , cancer awareness pink powder coat.
