    A friend of mine said something about GM making a new 2dr Tahoe so I looked it up. This is what I found. I really want one. It looks very promising for a new vehicle. I haven't been very impressed with SUV's in the last few years, but if this makes it out, There is hope.

    That was built on the two door Tahoe platform. GM quit building the 2 door for lack of sales about the time the concept came out. Doubt we will ever see that truck.

    I am not sure what to think about weather we will ever see it or not, but I do know this. GM still builds 2 door tahoes. However, they are only for sale as base modles in mexico. Those ypes of vehicles still sell down there. So, it would not be difficult for them to build. I would prefer them scrap the half doors and build one similar to what we alread have. Or they could really shock us a build a full top convertable... Yeah right... A solid axle would be sweet too.., But I'd never hold my breath to see soilid axles from GM ever again.... however, the solid axle swap always remnains an expensive yet viable option... If I had the cash, I would buy an Avalanch lift it 6 inches, do a solid axle swap and put in say 35s at least, and pait that plastic... One final note, if GM ever does build that New K5, it will have the Avalanch front end garanteed. This is for sure becuase in '03 the pickups are going to be sporting that front end...

    I think there is a very good chance of it coming out now that Robert Lutz is running the show at GM and the fact that they pretty much dominate the truck/suv market. Why not get a chunk of the fullsize short wheel base suv market. Hmm do you think there would be a market for them? I bet Lutz is thinking the same thing. Wouldnt be supprized if GM has already checked out this site just to see if the K5 was still popular.

    i emailed chevy when i first heard about it and shared my concern with the ifs, and how much i really liked the truck. I got a personal response that i was very impressed with. I didn't really think that someone would actually read the email and reply, at the most i thought they would have some data entry clerk making check marks on a database. but they responded. if enough of us write them i would think they would have to make it. Now if only my credit was good enough to buy one.
