54 inches

No it is not my height....it's a short story......anyways

My name is Adam Hoskins and I just finished my degree in Hotel management from Conrad Hilton @ U of H and I work in the new 1200 room Hilton in downtown Houston.

I am currently bulding a 1985 Suburban. It was my Grandfather's and I have some real fond memories of the truck, so when he was looking for a new Suburban I took her off of his hands.

Specs:

1985 3/4 Ton Suburban 2WD
454 400
Trailering Package
Towing Package
190,089 miles ... and still gets 12 mpg and will smoke the tires....
Baby Blue everything...that is definitely going to change

My plans:

2 to 4 wheel conversion
1 ton the front (it already has a 14 bolt, 10.5 FF from the factory) D 60
Blazer top conversion
60 front seat with a frig
8-71 FI 468
Boxed and laddered frame with a full cage
ORD doubler
Mo. Off Road K-member
Hydraulic assisted steering
44"-52" tires......
ORD Shackle flip
Very limited lift
Extensive fender "trimming" with modified Bushwackers

I want to build a rig that is road worthy. It will not be for rocks, but yet I still want it to be able to flex some. I do not believe that it is able to build an all around vehicle, but one for my needs should be attainable.

She will be known as the "Freak of Nurture"

Let the insanity begin.......
