Chevrolet Quigley build

Hey guys! so we are about to get silly again! Who is ready for some fun...

2016 3500 Chevrolet Express Quigley 4x4 Duramax. Only 566 miles ready for major facelift!


We will be starting with the suspension on this van, converting it to our coil-over kit and custom rear springs.
We will post pics of this build and if there is anything you would like to see please let us know.

Looking forward to watching this. The van pictured looks lifted already. If so, is that yours or Quigley's?

Are you guys doing/ able to do full 4wd Chevy conversions or are you simply going to add onto Quigleys?

Chevrolet Quigley 4x4 suspension upgrade

This van came with the 3" lift from Quigley 4x4. We are just converting it to our coilover system along with our performance springs and King IBP shocks in the rear.

Really nice setup, but I gotta ask:

What's the seatbelt strap do??

Suspension limiting strap so you don't overextend your shocks.

Thanks Bronco! Learn something new every day!

OK. Next question about the strap:

So if it's taught when the arm is just sitting with the weight of the van on it, then it won't go down right?? You only get upward movement? Wouldn't you want a little downward??

Sorry, I am kind of offroad dumb. If you knew how nervous I was driving my van up a small hill the other day you would laugh.
