D: What were you expectations for the audio system?
A: I wanted something that I could crank up loud when I wanted and be very stealth at the same time. The JL audio equipment did not let me down. The new Stealth box has great bass sound and the HD amps produce so much power. It sounds like a concert hall in the truck. The bass knob is another great addition, so when my little man is in the truck I can turn the bass down or even completely off. The best part about the system is that is all looks stock thanks to Performance Audio.

D: How do like the finished product?
A: I love driving the Tahoe. I live in East Texas and we drove it out to the 2010 SEMA show. That thing got looks and thumbs up from here to Vegas and back.

D: With the Tahoe completed and driven every day, what else did you use it for?
A: You name it—I use that Tahoe for everything. It drives great and I am not scared to take it on long trips. I also tow my boat with it.

D: What’s the best mod/part you did?
A: I really liked the Corsa exhaust we put on the Tahoe. The sound is aggressive, but doesn’t drone out the cab. I am a big fan of Corsa now.

D: Anything you’d change?
A: I might have chosen different colors for the wrap and taken more time with the install.

D: Best memory of the build?
A: It would have to be the guys at Ekstensive and my friends working on the truck. We did the lift, shocks, wheels, tires, exhaust, intake, grille, and programmer in pretty much one day. The second day we got an alignment and cleaned up the loose ends, but for the most part the entire install was done in one day. They killed it and I could not be happier.

D: What did you learn during the process?
A: I learned Ekstensive Metalworks really can lift a vehicle, I will never drive to Vegas again, and listen to people that modify trucks everyday for a living.  They know what they are talking about and know what will look good.  Who would have thought red caliper covers would look so good?

D: What’s next?
A: I have a 2011 Ford Raptor Super Crew sitting in my driveway now. It’s really fun to drive. I might have to leave this one alone, but don’t count on it.

D: Any last words?
A: I really want to thank all the sponsors and companies that made this project possible, without these guys this would still be a bone stock Tahoe. I would also like to thank my friends, family, and Severed Ties that helped work on the truck and get it ready for SEMA. I would also like to thank you Dan, Brandan, Big Ryan, and New Guy for following me around taking pictures of the build up and dragging me out into the desert for an awesome photo shoot.
