Project Mega Monster Started - Code name "BlackOut"

Post by MegaMoe » Mon Sep 19, 2011 10:22 am

Lately i got myself a 2005 Avalanche, 5.3 v8 z71 avalanche. Test in the desert, impressed, so its approved for the next phase, mods :mrgreen:

Here is the initial list:

Phase 1:
- 3" Front + 1.5" Rear Leveling Lift Kit
- 1" Body Lift.
- 33x11.5xR17 tires.
- 1" Spacers for better back-spacing for the rims.
- Trimming all the plastics for more aggressive look.
- Chip-tuning using Diablosport Predator.
- On-board touch screen android gps based on Google Maps.

Phase 2:
- Complete matte black paint.
- Warn Winch.
- Daylight roof bar.

Any inputs are welcome.

I am liking this thread. Can you please install somewhere with nice comfy sofas, a shade and maybe a small pool for when we stop for our breaks as I always get too hot and uncomfortable sitting on the sand!

Any inputs are welcome.
How will you do this? With android Google maps will you use a permanent 3G connection?
Or do you have an App with preloaded maps?
