Re: Finally bought another Suburban

I never even got to see it. How is it?
Like a 40 year truck would be; a mix of good and bad.

The good:
  • Like you said, well optioned
  • Doesn't look like it's ever been wrecked and is 99% complete
  • Runs strong and drives straight.
  • Rockers and floor look good
  • Has original dealer installed tow hooks
  • Seats have been redone. New foam and covers

The not so good:
  • Steering box needs to be rebuilt
  • Miss matched gear ratios front to rear. The Eaton was replaced with a 14 bolt
  • Some rust thru on the doors, upper wheel arches, lower tail gate
  • A/C compressor is on a box in the back. Was not reinstalled after engine transplant.
