This will be a pretty slow build log so please bare with me! I will update with more equipment as time goes on but this is what will be going in eventually.

Head Unit-Pioneer DEH-80prs+iPad 3 glassed into dash
Mids/Highs-3 Selenium PW5-SLF 12s per door, 3 Selenium St350s per door, 12 of each total.
Subwoofers-8-SKAR Audio ZVX-18"s
Amps-4-SKAR Audio SK-4500s, 4 Lanzar 500x2s, 2 SKAR Audio SK-85.4s
Electrical-12 or 16 Deka Group 31s, Singer 400A Alternator
Wire/Misc-ALL Audio Technix 1/0 power and ground wire+AT Deadener
Enclosure-Massive c-pillar 4th order wall

More will be updated as I start gathering equipment^^^



The excursion has a 6.8L V-10 that has been chipped out with air intake and straight pipes as well. Sounds like a fkn monster
It is lifted on 38s (might change wheels/tires) and it will be all blacked out eventually!

I had one of these for work at my last unit. I loved it and have really wanted one but there is NO WAY I am paying that kind of gas money. Thing got like 12 miles to a gallon if that. Ridiculous amount of room to work with in there

If I could ride a bike to save on gas and not use this as a daily driver I would def think about it, but I broke my ankle playing basketball and am 2 surgeries deep already and waiting to get back to the states for my next. I wont be riding for the foreseeable future unfortunately. Take out that 3rd row and go to town!

Looks like some suspension components have already been changed out but that would be my one warning on those. Had a lot of problems with mine for work where one thing would go out and then mess up something else. Ended up having to swap nearly the whole suspension. Was fine afterwards, but a PITA nevertheless

Couple small updates.

Got my panels dropped off with Jon at Epicenter Designs!!!

We fabbed up mock panels to see what we could fit and instead of my original plans of 6-10s and 3 tweets per door, we will be going with 6-8" SKAR neo mids per front door with 4 Crescendo FT1 Supertweets. And then 4-8" SKAR neo mids per back door a long with 2 Crescendo FT1 Supertweets.

We COULD fit the 10s but with the idea jon came up with to set my doors apart from most we decided that less is more to incorporate this sick theme :) I am super siked for progress as it gets started!

Here is jon doing a mini mock of how we will be fitting the mids

http://i1198.photobucket.com/albums/aa444/maliboom812s/temp_8temp_taken_picture.jpg

---------- Post added at 11:39 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:39 AM ----------

I am also doing a little something different with the excursion on the exterior ;)

I currently have a 12" total lift and 38s on 18s but due to the fact that this won't really be a DD, I decided to go a little more HAM on the rims/tires. That and the fact that my 38s didn't have much tread left, it made this decision even easier instead of spending 2k on new tires.

I ended up trading my 4-38s with 18s for 4-53" Military tires with about 90+% tread left on them :runaround:

http://i1198.photobucket.com/albums/aa444/maliboom812s/IMG_0616.jpg

I will be cutting out the fenders a good 3-4 inches and then adding black bushwacker fender flares to help me clear the tires with no rubbing issues!

The rims I have decided on a 20x12s and look fkn sick IMO. Love the fact I still get a 20" rim with such a massive tire!

And I believe they are in the neighborhood of 4.0" but I am not 100% I'd have to double check

Beggers can't be choosers when you are trading a Malibu that was as customized as mine was. Not many people could afford it or had anything of value to make a trade worth it.

Glad I found this though:peace:

What axles does it have?

after a little research it seems it would be a ford 10.5" or a dana 70 possibly 80. With the front most likely being a 60. You SHOULD be ok but I'd still drive very conservatively, although, I could be way out of line since I've never dealt with anything over 39.5".

Ya I've been told I should be ok. And with 53" tires and thousands of extra lbs of audio I won't be able to drive crazy if I tried lol. More of a weekend warrior when it gets all said and done

Used up all of the 20sqft of Murdermat 87 mil and 90 mil on just 2 doors!!!!! lol These doors are massive compared to any of my recent cars lol.

It applied so well and was pretty impressed with how it basically murdered the road noise!"pun inteded" :)

Murdermat ftw! Video review coming soon!

For one...those tires have no where near 90% left on them. More like 20%.

For two...your chip does nothing for your gear ratios in your diffs. They are mechanical, and must be mechanically changed. Chances are you are gonna need something in the 5.xx range.

If you actually wanted to make it go and show and still get good mileage, drop a cummins diesel in it. Google Fummins swap. It has been done lots.

Where did I say how much tread my tires had? lol

These are my 38s that I am getting rid of.

And I am deff looking into the cummins swap but it won't be done until sometime next year! Love me some black smoke!!!

Cummins swap will prolly run ya about 8-10 grand. Seems like a lot, but when you save $50 a fill.....not to many fills to pay for itself.

Man this build is lookin very sick. Can't wait to see what comes of this, keep updating it if you can. Always loved excursions, I looked at a MINT 05 this summer, all black, 6.0, perfect in and out, they wanted a little too much for it though so i had to let it pass.

As far as gear ratios, I'd look into maybe some 5.38's or something, that trans is going to hate you so much.
