Automobile(s): 2003 DENALI bagged on 26's.. 2008 GS350 murdered
Re: anyone got/seen a lifted off-road Escalade?
honda4x4nut - nice truck man....that is what I'm talking bout! is that a CST kit? any other details or pics of the suspension components? Anything you can help out that you have learned from you own mistakes. maintenance issues? What gears of driveshaft are you running?
Funny that this post has come up!!! If you asked me my opinion on a lifted truck a few years ago.. I would have laughed in your face! especially a lac truck! However oddly enough. This look is starting to become one of the fastest growing trends in the aftermarket/show truck world right now!!! While a lowered NBS on 24/26's will always look clean and classy for the street....On the show scene it is starting to get played out like Altezza taillights, and Lambo doors.
I recently ditched my Mcgaughy's and 26's....
To stay with the current trends I also just ordered a Cognito 10-12" lift and remote resevoir shocks, along with some Toyo M/T 37's....now all I need is to link up with "customizer" and try to incorporate a custom air suspension, and I am ready to crush the whole game.
Do not get it twisted the redneck "lets go muddin" lift style is not what we are talking about..
Illnily- The lift is a 12 inch 3rd Coast Suspension Lift. BNC Offroad did it, they are located in Pasadena,Tx.
Here is the link to thier site- www.bncoffroad.com I will tell you that the autoride will no longer function and will make some idiot lights on the dash come on. I currently have the engine light, ABS light, Trac light on and the Display reads- Service Brakes, Service Stability, and Service AutoRide I went to a buddies to clear the codes but it was only reading an "Unknown Code Error". I am told that they can all be cleared by the dealer but I refuse to return to my local dealer and I have just dealt with haveing the lights and warnings in the mean time. With this Lift a have a set od 22" MC2 Amedeus wheels with 37" Nitto Mud Grapplers. These tires are loud but Smooth, this thing rides as smooth as it did factory but handles the bumps better. The Paint work was done by Chaotic Customs in Tomball,Tx. it is all airbrushed, I won first place with this paint job at DRYOFF 05'. Any way Good Luck on lifting yours, I would love to see pics as soon as its done.
hate to awaken this old thread - but I am currently looking for a 3" lift kit for a 2002 AWD Escalade. Plan is to get some good AT Tire/Rim package and do some Type III level off-roading trips with the wife and 4 kids - ( and Monday-Fri school runs..)
Would really love to get any type of knowlegde as i am pretty new to GM...
