She came home Saturday

Well after two years and two months at the body shop, the burb came home. It was raining but I didn't care. The pics aren't the best, I'll try to get better ones soon.

Re: She came home Saturday

I thought my truck spending 9 months at the bodyshop was a long time. Wow that turned out great looking. Well worth the wait. Keep us updated!

Re: She came home Saturday

That is simply stunning...... The "Surburban" on the tailgate is a real classy touch. The top color looks real familiar to me...

Man, that thing is beautiful. I also love the Suburban logo on the back. It was worth the wait.

Can't wait to see it with all the goodie back on. It looks sweet. Looks like the 2 year wait was worth it.
