it sat for 6yrs while i went to college and then bought, wheeled and sold a few other rigs. i was mostly concerned with rock crawling so the suburban didn't really do anything for me. i could never quite bring myself to sell it but at the same time, never wanted to take the time to build it right. now that its in my driveway and i see it everyday, its a good motivation to keep moving on it. and as soon as i get something else as a second vehicle i'm tearing apart my '99 chevy and its donating its engine/trans to the suburban.
