Ante Upp....! My 1997 GMC Safari Van

by Big Bob
(L.A., California)

Originally, I bought this van (stock) so that I could have something to drive around while my '82 4x4 BRONCO was being re-juvenated! One thing led to another, and I found that I just couldn't stop ADDING ON things (ie. RIMS, LOWERING KIT, BILLET ACCESSORIES)..

Although I am "still" waiting for the body shop to finish up my MONSTER, I am keeping up with my little add-ons and customizations..

THe reason that I named her ANTE-UPP, is because I am a poker player ("Go TEXAS HOLD 'EM") and just LOVE everything about the game. My interior is airbrushed with POKER-INFUSED types of graphics as well as some BILLET ALUMINUM pieces for good measure!!!8

After installing a DJM Suspension 2/4 Drop kit on it, I knew that the next step would be the RIMS.. So, since I have NEVER rolled on a set of 20's before - that was my plan! However, knowing that I would NEVER be completely satisfied - I went ONE STEP BIGGER and went to 22x9.5's, and I now am HAPPY!!

Since I am still working on it - it's TOP SECRET and I'm keeping it all under wraps!

Human being here...

Doing a 2 inch front drop and an axle flip in the rear is likely going to set the rear a lot lower than the front.

2"front 4"rear is what I'm understanding, I'm doing a flip kit on the rear and 2"drop springs up front does that sound bout right..Alien

That van is looking pretty good man! I would love to see some pics of the interior. I know you're keeping it under wraps, but keep us informed on your progress. Sounds like a fun project. Don't forget to post your 4x4 too!
