Been around for a fairly long time here... posted up a little bit when I had my Jeep... but ended up selling the Jeep as our family was growing... and needed some space along with the ability to tow a 6000lb travel trailer while still being able to hit some pretty technical trails without having to be pulled & winched along. In 2009, we bought a 96 Suburban 3/4 ton with a 454ci big block. It towed great, but was a total pain on the road as it drove like the tires were the suspension. So it was sold... and we bought a 93 Suburban 1/2 ton... and the build began.
5.7L V8, 4L60E transmission, 8.25" IFS front, 10bolt solid in the rear with a G80 gov-lock, 3.73's, tow package...cloth interior and in really nice overall condition. Orig owner 2 toned it... started out all burgundy... but the silver ended up looking like brushed aluminum... which looks neat, but won't matter after it sees a few tight trails. We're the 3rd owner... and it needed a little TLC in the repair dept... but nothing I couldn't handle.
First things first.... we're a family who likes window tint... so just like the family mini-van, we limo tinted over top of the factory tinted glass.
On the above pic, you see factory tint on the door window, below, double tint!
I located a 14bolt semi-float axle from a guy who went to 8 lugs on his Yukon. Came with a G80 gov-lock and a lot of rust & leaks.
Tore it apart... and checked it all out. Clean on the inside at least.
Ready for some cleaning...
More to come later....
