    Hey guys, I hauled the subframe to powdercoating facility with a small van (VW Transporter) that I borrowed. However I will likely not have that van by hand next week when the subframe will be finished and prepared for pick up.

    The question is - do you think it will fit inside NBS (01) Tahoe with 2nd-row seats folded? Has anyone carried the subframe inside an SUV?

    Thanks

    I don't need Google to take the measurements, when I can do that myself :) But I'm not certain about dimensions of the bare subframe. The question is if anybody did that before.

    Yep, it's got roof rack, truth. I didn't even realize that :D But it would be a tough job to get it up there. I've put the dimension question to NastyZ Facebook page and somebody replied with the measurements:
    I measured Tahoe trunk and in the narrowest areas it's 48.8" x 76.3". I shall be good, keep fingers crossed :bowtie:

    You can angle it low on the drivers side high on the pass side if it is tight, that distance is gonna be bigger than straight across. Or grab a Harbor Freight movers blanket and put it on the roof. Two people can easily get it up there.
