Chevrolet Express 4x4, Sema 2018 Build

If you don't follow us on social media yet you may have missed this build? This build started out with a 2 wheel drive lift kit running 33" tires and it was a really nice ride. Of course it couldn't just stop there! Next up was a complete make over and you will have to watch our videos to see the transformation.



We went silly on this build and added a new lift that included a 4x4 conversion with our coilover kit and custom rear leaf springs. Next up was front and rear bumpers with a tire carrier, rock sliders, aluminum roof rack with awning and a ton of Lightforce Lights on it.

Not wanting to derail your otherwise great thread but PLEASE don't post every thing you do to this "social media" crap, aka "facebook". Not everyone lives and dies by that site so please keep that in mind. FWIW as most of your projects are of interest to those of us here this is a great site for sharing your creations, modifications and complete builds.

All this is IMHO mind you---others might not feel as strongly biased against "facebook" as me.

Most of this build is not on facebook but shared on Youtube, so if you like watching videos and most of them are short. However I will be happy to post plenty of pics and share our build process.
Just clink the link below and enjoy!

Looking great! Kids rock, love that element. Thanks for bringing them up in this culture--the industry needs more of this!

^^^ totally agree with all that. the younger generations only seem to know how to buy completed projects. the art of fabrication and building crap yourself is going wayside.


oh, and the van is badass!

Its not all that unfair really but its underlying causes should be understood too. Back in my day (late 50's) young boys would typically learn how to do things working with their fathers. That's very rare these days so no mentors of a sort to teach, encourage or inspire the DIY attitude of days gone by.
