    GMT800: 1/2T vs 3/4T for towing duty

    I have a 2003 1500 Suburban, 5.3l, 4L60E 4x4, and 3:73 axles. Its max towing is 7,200lbs. If I go to 4:10 axles I can get to 8,100lbs. Also swapping in a 4L80 in place of a 4L60 is not a straight swap if I remember correctly (different lengths, no speed sensor). At the weights you a planning to...

    SubSar's "03 Suburban Build

    Next up I was leaking windshield washer fluid everywhere. I already had a spare washer fluid tank in the garage so I swapped it out. While pulling the old one I found the front washer pump housing was cracked. One trip to Autozone for a new pump. Since I had to pull the battery tray to get the...

    SubSar's "03 Suburban Build

    It’s not a zombie thread. Just not much to report lately. Anyway, the panels in my rig I designed and had custom cut. I like mine just fine. They look like they fit a little tighter to the windows than the others I have seen. I could to find any for GMT800 Suburbans so I designed my own. Since...

    Newbie gmt800 Advice Needed

    If you haven’t already looked at it check out my 03 Suburban build. I was/am in a similar boat as you. Limited budget, not looking to hardcore off road, mainly highway. I have to agree with the other replies. I would...

    GMT800 Suburban Differentials?

    Any Suburban/Tahoe/Yukon GMT800 with the factory tow package should have the G80 locker. I have an ‘03 Suburban LT with the tow package, 3.73’s and the G80 on 33’s. It cruises just fine around town and on the highway.

    Well, did about a 200 mile round trip yesterday. From 250 above sea level to 7000 feet and back down with four starts and stops along the way. So far no CEL. I’ll take it.

    GMT800 Suburban - Rear Side Window Mount Locations

    When I built and installed my panels I dropped the headliner and bolted my mounting brackets right to the steel body frame around the roof. Put the headliner back in and then mount the panels. My panels are tucked back I closer to the glass than OrangeBox’s...

    SubSar's "03 Suburban Build

    Well, it has been a rough month for the SARburban. Back in January I replaced the Transfer Case, Transfer Case Shift Motor, and all the u-joints. I went the cheap route with the shift motor. I found one with good reviews and a decent price on Amazon. That was a mistake. I got maybe 400 miles...

    storage for a 99-06 tahoe and cab of a 99-07 silverado

    I found these for a 2000-2006 Suburban. It doesn't look like they do Tahoe's but they might be willing to prototype some. I made my own before I stumbled onto Orange Box's website. I do not know anything about them other than what is on the website...

    Continuing with the auxiliary electrical system. As I mentioned main power comes off the aux battery to a 100amp relay that I tied to a switch in the dashboard. I close the switch, the relay closes and sends power to the Blue Sea Systems, 12 circuit, fuse block under the cup holders in the...

    Suburban mild lift parts? (GMT800 '00-06)

    The RK80826 with offset bushings are the ones that will give you more adjustment to bring the alignment back in after lifting the front end. With my 3/2 Lift and Level I did not have to change the upper control arms. I still have the factory originals. The alignment technician did warn me that...

    Martinjmpr, I did add the second battery. I found the auxiliary battery tray and hold down parts in another truck at the wreckers while I was looking for a set of skid plates. The skid plates I pulled off a Z71 Tahoe. The Suburban already had all the bolt holes so it was easy to bolt the skid...
