Ive been looking for a diesel suburban for about a year now. I have a 92 k2500 suburban now with the 454 and i love it but the mpg is killing me. I kicked around the idea of swapping in a 6.5 for a while but i found a guy selling a 1993 suburban with the diesel for 2800. The truck has 200k so thats an issue but my truck now has 190k and my suburban before this one had 280k. What do u guys think? anything to look out for specifically with these diesel engines? Heres the craigslist link. The main thing im looking for is that i want basically the same truck i have now but with better mpg, and i sometimes pull a horse trailer so i still need the ability to pull a large trailer. I think a suburban with the diesel would be perfect. Hopefully Koots can chime in here too i know hes pretty much the resident pro with these old diesel engines. Also i am kind of worried about the mileage are these engines hard to maintain once they have some age on them? He said it was mostly used on long highway drives but of course everyone says that lol.
Sorry i just realized i put this thread in the wrong place, if someone wouldnt mind moving it to the correct area.
