    Looking to findout what the wheel base of an 80s long bed is and what the wheelbase of a Burban is. Dad tells my mom he thinks the burban I want to get is too big for a daily driver. He drives an extended cab long bed ford. I like to have facts to kill my dad's arguments.

    2002, it turns quite well but its still a freight train. I really want this Burban, its an 89 so it will be TBI, its 4 speed, and 3/4 ton. And if I am REALLY lucky it will have an NP241, if it does I will freak /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif. Since that 241 is EXACTLY what I need for my K5 and can't locate anywhere.
