    Brought it home last night. It´s a -77 Suburban Scottsdale K20. Lifted about 8 inches with 40" Gumbo monstermudder tires.

    I´m going to replace the tires with something that´s better to drive, theese tires are awful on the highway. Maybe 35 or 36 inch superswampers or Goodyear MTR´s.

    The truck is in very good shape except for a leak in the right exhaust manifold and a big dent in the hood. Almost no rust at all.

    Just had to share, I think it´s a very nice find :D

    yes indeed, i can see a x over steering, what did you pay for it? i think you should go with some 38's. i think 35's would look to small imho. but if $ is a issue do what you gotta do.

    Thanks a lot guys :D

    It´s got a Dana44 frontaxel so I don´t think it´s going to like 38´s. It´s not crossoversteering, just looks like that in the picture.

    I paid around $6000 for it. Theese trucks are very rare over here so they are quite expensive. This one is actually sold new here in Sweden in november of -77. It´s really amazing that it´s not completely rusted away. Probably it´s lived it´s life in northern Sweden where they don´t use any salt on the roads.
