Re: Impressed with our Burb!

I really like how you're revitalizing this burban and setting it up for your family to enjoy. IMO, the back could come up a little bit so that the fender lip hits the same spot on the tire as it does in the front. That would give you a little bit of a rake, but I actually think that looks good. Would give you some more clearance in the rear.

Re: Impressed with our Burb!

Just got through reading your thread here. I like the burb! After all of the new gaskets are you losing any oil or was it all just leaks?

I really haven't driven it enough since fixing the leaks to see how much oil it'll burn, but it does have a bit of the smoke at idle and on the throttle after idling for a bit. One thing for sure, it is gutless!

I'm exchanging texts this morning with my local "pusher man", trying to make a trade for a bench seat for the Burb and a stepside bed for my '64. Man, it never ends...

Thanks! I like a little rake on short beds, but I prefer long beds and Burbs to be pretty flat. I can't bounce on the bumper hard enough to bottom it out since I swapped out the air shocks, so we'll see.
