Default More lift to my Envoy XL SLT

Well i finally added some more lift to my Envoy. Now i know it not that much compared to most Jeeps and Pick-up's but its what is availible for the GMC Envoy and Chevy Trailblazer. Here is my envoy when it was stock.

Now this is with a 2" body lift and stock tires

Now here is with some 31.6 inch general grabber AT 2's

And this is with 2" body lift, 2.5" front suspension lift, front Blistien HD shocks, 2007 chevy Tahoe shocks and springs (add 2" of suspension lift) and 1.75" suspension maxx spacers.



Next is a custom front and rear bumper along with a Mile marker winch that i allready have. Also im going to go with some 33 or 34" mud tire. LOL not what most people think of when i say i have a GMC Envoy

don't look bad, honestly, from that last pic it has the stance of a H3, probably built on the same platform IIRC

LOL thats not the first time ive herd the Mini van thing. A lot of it has to do with no front or rear bumper. Also the only way I will beable to get more lift in the front is if i went with a solid axle setup wich would probibly be thousand if it were possible. Damn front axles go through the oil pan for some odd fucking reason

if you are serious about lifting it you could either get a different oil pan or moke mods to your current one and then stap in the 3/4-1 ton ifs stuff but that would take a lot of work and money... you would really be further ahead to scrap the lifted envoy idea and just get an H3... but that's not what you wanted to hear...

It might look better lifted if it wasn't the long wheelbase version of an Envoy. They just look tooooo long for how wide and tall a body they are.

How do you like those Grabber AT2? I need new tires for my Suburban and its between those and BFG's. Grabbers are much cheaper tho', like $200 a set.

sweet build dude.
im likeing it.

i would look into doing a solid front axle and just lift it more so it will not come close to the oil pan.
i havent looked under my sisters trailblazer to see what you are dealing with, so i don't know how difficult that would be. just a thought.

keep up the good work, i cant wait to see the bumpers.

Everyone ive talked to said that they liked the General Grabber AT 2's. I liked them at first when my 4X4 worked. My 4x4 went out in the winter and they really sucked, worked decent in the mud when i didnt have working 4x4. Tread life sucks if you abuse the tires just a little. i have 6000+ miles on mine and there is about 2/32 of thread on the middle of the rear tires and about 9-10/32 on the outside of the tires. the fronts wore desent and are at about 11/32 tread The plus side is that they come with a 60,000 mile warranty also i have the offroad hazard warranty too.

Aren't they a unibody design? I guess you could still do it, I've seen pictures of XJ's on frames(blazer?)
