    ArrowGoing to buy an escalade...

    Well after getting a new job, I Have decided to "Waste" all my money on an escalade, some are going for very cheap up here ( $18,500USD ). And I am going to trade in my 2000 cavalier, for an esclade, big trade up lol I know.

    But what I am wondering is,
    1. Where can I get rims cheap?
    2. Anyway to modify the front? So it looks like a 2002+?
    3. Anywhere I can get an extremely CHEAP one?
    4. To body kit or not to body kit?
    5. Where do I accessorize?

    and anything else you guys might want to tell me.

    Thanks,

    You, sir, are a good American.

    They have body kits to make a '99 Yukon look like an Escalade, but I don't know if the front cap from a 2002 would match up with an older one or not.

    Thanks ( Canadian btw )
    But I don't really think I do need a body kit, more importantly a grill and rims to start off with, then I will be broke + still making payments.

    So I should focus on a sound system.

    OK this is what you have to do with the truck.
    First you have to drop it about 3 inches.

    Second you should put 20-22 inch wheels on it that are tastefull and not to much. Also make sure you have a little rubber on them.

    Third work on the sound system.

    The first Caddy truck is not as nice as the second version but with a little work you can trick it out.

    Kelso, I have a set of rims that would be perfect for you. 22" XTC Escalade rims with Pirelli Zero 305/40/22 tires. I bought them a couple of months and I have since sold my truck. I have the rims at my house in mint condition. They look great on an escalade. Give me a call or email and I'll give you more info. I'm in Canada too so no tax or duty. I paid 6,000 but I'll sell them for $3,900 Cdn

    Craig.
