    I generally don't like to post ebay links, but this one I couldn't pass up. Why,...because it's exactly how I want my suburban to look in the future. And, it's the exact same thing as my burb. (paint job, plowmount, bug deflector, dual exhaust tips, roof rack, 1/2 ton running gear /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif)
    My question is...HOW IS THIS THING WORTH AS MUCH AS IT SAYS?? /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
    My burb in future?!?!?!

    well subs don't depreciate very quickly, and it's got a plow on it and all the mods, i'd say 9k isn't too bad. it's a very nice truck. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    looked like he said there was a new crate 350 in it, which would account for some of the value

    Good points, everyone, but let me ask you this. Would you spend $9,000 on it?!?! Keep in mind that you'd want to spend the time and money in upgrading to a 1 ton drivetrain, and then new wheels would be in order. Maybe some new paint if you're worried about cosmetics. All in all, I agree it's an impresive suburban and looks like it was put together with all the right stuff so far. But, I don't see $9,000 worth of truck there. If that's the case, well, my truck must be worth $8000!!!

    It looks pretty nice but I would rather pay less and do the upgrades on my own, so I guess my answer is no, I would rather not pay so much.
