    IM jealous! I just want one again......

    We don't even have the stupid 96 anymore....just my blazer and an 01 tahoe....which is sweet....but not long enough :(


    Haha, do we need to start keeping track of the people that say this?

    You might as well just say "im thinking of hacking it up but know i shouldn't.....but if you guys insist....." :haha:

    I must say I am jealous!! I am glad that it was you who bought it. When I drove by the dealership last night and it was gone, I thought "Dang, somebody bought the Burb!"

    Slap that 4" lift on and the 35" GSA's......the D60/14BFF and 36" swampers need to go on the "rough" one. :D :D

    The lift would need to be 6" to clear the running boards....Not enough $$$$ to start the other one again....

    Going through the receipts, everything was bought with a lifetime warranty....

    There is a shift kit installed, large aftermarket cooler, new u-joints for the front axles, 12 disc cd changer, rear air, Edelbrock IAS shocks, Michelin tires, prolly a stage 2 chip, since it runs at about 160*, the list goes on and on....

    Heck he even had the drivers side seat redone because the padding was worn. Gotta like buying a vehicle from a bored single guy....

    wow sounds great but sounds doomed too!!

    you always read about someone who buys a great truck nicely redone and sooner or later it gets a mark then a lit and some tires, then the fenders cut out a cage then rolled down a moutain!!!!!:haha:
