    Ok I am about to trade for this sub and the seller states that its a 1991 model. All the pics I see of a 1991 sub look nothing like his. for one the door handles are diffrent, it has a fold down tailgate instead of the 2 doors, the body is a lot more square on his compared to the others I see. What can you guys tell? Thanks in advance.

    Looks just like a '91 Sub to me. The body style changed in '92 on Subs. The rear could be ordered with barn doors or a tailgate, so you'll find them with either.

    That looks like a 89-91 Burb. It has a tailgate, not barn doors. Here is my '90 -

    ok I trust you guys. thanks for reasuring me.
    I have seen some 91's that have the flush door handles and doors on back so it just made me get nervous. As you can tell I am a newb at this stuff. I guess I will have a bunch more stupid questions to come. lol

    again thanks

    The flush door handles didn't start until '92 on Suburbans. GM changed the body style of the pickups in '88, but didn't get around to changing the Subs until '92.
