    this is directed to all you burb owners but anybody is welcome to put there 2 cents in.

    how do you like your burbans? anything you like/dislike about them? what kind of experience's have you had with them good/bad? what would one want to look for in a suburban?

    Love mine - best vehicle out there in my opinion. So much interior room, good towing capabilites if need be, and king of the road size-wise. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    If you're in the market to buy one, the BEST (I think) second generation suburban out there is the '91 2500 4x4. Mainly because you get the 4L80e tranny and a stronger drivetrain.
    Any more questions or something more specific, just ask. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I love mine, just wish I had the barn doors instead of tailgate for easier loading of cargo. But thats a matter of opinion. I like the 89-91 2500 also, but due to the heavy dutyness and "new truck" look of the nose. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    I've got an '83 and I love it for most stuff. I've put it in more "You can't take a suburban there" spots than I care to mention, but sometimes it is just a little too big. When we camp, we sleep in it, and it's very comfortable. We can take the wife, kid, dog, neighbors, friends, kitchen sink, etc. and there is still a ton of room left over. The wheelbase is great for climbing, but tends to put the rockers in some precarious situtations. I would suggest sliders. One more thing, get ready to make multi-point turns. There's no getting around that! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
