    Here it is the day I went to look at it when it was done. Didn't get to take it home because it still needed alignment. Real bummer

    So here is when I ordered a new set of headlights and started my headlight build. I tore them down and had them sent off to be hydro dipped. I had them colormatched

    I like the headlights more than I thought I would. As for the color matched interior, I'm sorry but it looks terrible. White and black do not go together. I think a dark gray would look a lot better.

    Love the lift and tire/wheel combo, but please for the love of God get that rear bumper painted.

    Glad to finally see some pics of the burb posted! I love the 2500 burbs! The headlights turned out better than I would have expected. Good lines with the black grill. I would of skipped the color shift leds for a true retrofit hid projector. Could do demon eyes if you wanted color in the lights. Get that rear bumper painted and new driver rear window trim. I see you had to do some fender work to clear, would the norcal mod of helped or was it all the outer corner?

    Well apparently the truck had been hit at some point in the front. So there had been fender work done on both sides. I had to trim it and clean it up more. The reason it looks so obvious is because there is bondo there. I have not yet fixed it. The rear bumper is peeling, but I'm not going to fix it. I eventually want to replace it with Fab Four bumpers in front and back and have them colormatched. I went with the halos because I'm not a big fan of the projectors. They're nice but I like Suburban better without them. I'm currently working on finding somewhere to do a gear swap to 4.10s . And also looking for somewhere near me to possibly do EFI Live. I also forgot to post it has a flowmaster 40 with a axle dump. Just saving for funds at the moment. For now a 8 inch drop hitch for when I need to tow and have a bolt lock that uses my truck key

    I wouldn't go 4.10 gearing. 4.56 or 4.88 and throw in a truetrac.

    The front looks clean (except the cheesy headlights, but whatever). Those aftermarket bumpers really don't look that good.. I'd keep it as it is and fix the rear bumper.

    Tire/wheel combo looks good.
