.
Heidi: The best way to get them from your phone is to use Tapatalk if that app is available. With Tapatalk you can upload directly from your phone.
.
Otherwise, if you have a computer you could email the photos from your phone to your email account and then save the photos to your computer, then upload them from the computer using the "insert image" link above. I do think you have to have a certain number of posts (maybe 10?) before you're allowed to post pictures - this is something that unfortunately the moderators of this board had to do in order to try and limit the amount of Spam and advertising that would appear here.
.
Also: PM sent, check your inbox. :ylsmoke:

Look at the "Notifications" tab at the top right of the screen. It may be that as a new member you don't yet have privileges to receive PMs. You can email any photos to me at martinjmpr@yahoo.com and I'll be happy to post them in this thread for you.

Here in the US this body style is often referred to as the "square body." I think there is at least one other square body pop-top on ExPo and I know there's a GMT800 pop top, too.

Very cool! Some serious front end and side protection there!
Love the rear bumper and tire carrier setup!
Great job! Pop top is awesome as well!

Love it! We always called that era of Suburban "Big Body "Burb". I'll definitely follow along on this build, you already have such a great starting point and it's cool that it was handed down.
