    I am not quite sure what is meant by the rancho suspension lift that says Rough country, or even the extra heavy duty axles that appear to be stock 1/2 ton.

    Also found this one too..

    Why would you do such a thing to make a suburban totally useless except to be a mall poser? Looks like a big waste of money to me.

    from the second one...

    1-ton running gear (5.28 ratio, Dana 44 front axle, 4-shock steering stabizer, and a 'corporate 14' (like a Dana 60) rear axle).

    yea......he really knows what hes talkin about...

    The first one looks like a 12 bolt rear and a D44 up front. I don't think that is exactly custorm or "extra heavy duty". That thing is a turd with shocks and tires. And some sort of a lift and blocks. No reverse, no brakes, sounds like a steal... :rolleyes:

    well, it appears to me that the first burb really don't look no better nor worse than some of the people's rides on here. there are lots of people in the world that are not into the 4x4's like we are and will advertise that they have a 12 inch rancho lift, when rancho never made a 12 inch lift. or other errors like calling a hd 44 a one ton axle. not that they are purposely trying to mislead someone, they are just going by what some other uninformed person told them. in the first ad, let's see. just by looking in his shop, it looks like he could really hook you up with the early vw stuff, but probably just don't know about the burb. someone could get it and make it into a really fun vehicle without a whole lot of work.

    on the second, different strokes for different folks. at least he didn't build a ricer :rolleyes:

    Flame away on me, but I`d buy the first one for parts or a decent start for another project at that price. The tires and the running engine is well worth that price to me. (PS: no matter how crappy the chop job, I have a thing for suburbans with the back chopped off.) :crazy:

    If I wanted a truck that long I'd be all over the the first one. I've swapped enough parts around (and have my own little junkyard now) that wouldn't be too worried about the bad stuff. If it goes for less than a grand its a good deal.

    The second was obviously built to cruise. Lots of that type of the thing around here.

    Neither is my cup of tea but :waytogo: to both of them for not sending them to the crusher.
