Next step is replace the funked up upper control arm bushings, get my LT bumper and fog lights installed, and probably Z71 Tahoe springs/struts in the rear. Was a fun day :-D

Went balls deep in some high water without 4wd and Badlands, and I believe hydro locked the motor. There were 3 360’s taken down that night. :cry:

Yup, what he said. The one caveat I would like to add though is that I have been in that exact same hole more than a dozen times over the last 5 years and have seen it at all water levels. I have even been stuck and needed to be pulled out as well as having pulled others out after having made it through without any issues myself.

I haven't been on here in some time, between work a and home haven't had much time. Still keeping with the Bravada for now if anybody remembers me. I was mostly active on the OS. The Bravada had mark's 3" lift Z71 rear springs and the stiffer front springs giving me about 4" more fender to hub than the factory setup. I've had 245/70/17 Treadwright Pumas on it since I believe 2011/12. Finally put new tires on it, Falken Rubitrek in 265/70/17. I'm on my phone don't think I've started a build thread yet. I think the stance looks pretty good.

Does you flag fly well at lower speeds? I made a hitch mount flag mount a while back and the air cavity behind the truck kept it from flying well. It just sat up against the window the whole time.

How tall was your pole and how big was your flag?
