Check out this build series on our 1968 C10 with a Cadillac Escalade frame swap!
We chose an 07 Escalade because the wheel base is only an inch longer then a short bed c10. It comes with updated rack and pinion, better suspension, all wheel drive transfer case, and an aluminum block LS3.
We stripped the frame installed coil overs and rebuilt our LS3. We built the LS3 to be able to handle some boost.
We reused the c10 cab mounts and made custom one off the Escalade frame.
We went with a 4l80e transmission that we made fit our Escalade frame. We had to clearance the floor to make a custom tunnel to fit our transmission.
The bed was completely cut apart and we made a custom bed frame to mount to our Escalade frame.
We fit our 3in pipes to begin welding together our turbo kit.
We installed a S475 T6 turbo and the turbo kit was complete.
For clearance our exhaust is 5in flat Nascar style exhaust tube.
