But before it went into body shop on 12/10/18 i had to do resonator delete. It has since been tucked up more and is much tighter( like i could probably stand on it and it dont budge)

Image

And here it is on 12/21/18 when i got it back from body shop after 4300 of damages.

Somewhere between back from body shop and to today 2/3/19 i tinted tails and installed radio and led headlight bulbs

As of 2/2/19 i did air to coilspring conversion in rear and 1.5” wheels spacers

Image

Image

Image

Image

Plans for the future are possibly 1.5-2” lift in front, im leaning toward some all terrains in either 255/60/18 or 265/60/18 is more what im leaning towards.

Order this saturday and picked tires up tonight. Getting all put on friday.

Image

And scored these 265/60/18 michelin premier ltx tires have 30 miles on them. Someone bought a 2018 grand cherokee and immediately got different tires. I scored em for $200 bucks. There not my all terrains i wanted but the deal was to good to pass up.

The 265/60/18 michelins are on and also the proxs borla muffler is on too. Ill try and get video soon. It sounds amazing. Lil in cabin noise but i dont mind the v8 growl. And v4 mode there is the slightest drone at 2k at highway speeds but its not unbearable with the radio on cant tell

Ill try getting video soon. But just to update after about a week of driving with the tires. Im def gonna need a lift. Even these tires rub slightly when turning on front bumper. Not bad just a little. Can hear it especially when ur in drivethru and radio off and window down. Im not to worried about it. But just for future people with denali envoy that want bigger tires they rub. I feel since trailblazer has bigger opening they wouldnt rub

Love walking out to see this thing everyday. Really thinking of doing the rough country 2” lift in front and 3/4” lift spacer in back. Then itll be perfect. Im probably also planning on wrapping mirrors in carbon fiber. Also the door pillars and the rear black pieces by back window.

Ordered a 13” antenna to get rid of the tall ugly stocker. 15 bucks. Will post pics when it comes in and i get installed. Been using the voy more like a truck then anything here lately. Getting our chicken coop ready. Brought posts home from work to help make a roof and brought some stuff home today to make the roof. Next stuff i buy is gonna be maintenance items(plugs, and belts need attention). Then back to hopefully more fun stuff like my lift

Great looking rig! I like the mirrors both ways but painted stands out a little more. Not sure if its in your plans but I think new headlights would look great. You have blacked badges, side markers and tails. I think either black housing or smoked lens on your head lights would look killer!

Yeh i acctually have another set of stockers i want to take apart and paint black but i may just by some black ones. Only thing im not sure of is if i want an amber lense in headlight or if i want the clear? What do you think. Its a toss up for me im leaning more towards having turn signal lens being clear in headlight

Clear would look cleaner IMO. You could do clear with switchback bulbs that way they are white all the time and only blink orange when your blinker is on.

Thats what i was thinking. And the switchbacks r a good idea too. After i do my plugs and now front hub assembly im gonna be doing headlights, and my lift. Still deciding on a lift tho. Not sure which i want to go with. Cant seem to find liftmeister anymore. So idk
