Cracker.

Every time we pop a Z71 Suburban, I cock an eyebrow.

It paid off.

This came in for $1,000. I paid $1,600 for the privilege to take it home.

Has some slight edge,but for a 311,028 mile rig, I expect much more to be wrong than is, Windshield is perfect, has a bad mirror. Leather is fine, some seams are undone. Seat heaters work, 4x works, stepper motors for the gauges are junk, so I have no tach, Speedo, and a lazy oil psi gauge.
The Bose is crisp, and it has a tailight surrounded by body color duct tape, with a dent under it. I think the Duct tape is just there cosmetically?

Swapped my Hankook's onto it tonight, and gave it a mild torsion crank, got a patch cord into the rear DVD unit, to play my iPod, lol'd at the same white noise my other one when I had ran it that way....

Quiet, smooth, and crisp, just like a 1 owner 60k mile 9 year old rig should be, except it's a 310k mile rig....





547,xxx miles of Z71 right here.... Go ahead, dog on Bow Tie reliability I dare you....




Got my 285's on it here...



Ol' SourMashII goes under the knife know, after I get the Expedition back to happy.... That was the underlying reason for the purchase, cheap enough it could be a parts rig for mine, if need be, and something for her to drive that works, so I can take her Expy off the road, and fix the suspension, re-flash the ECM, so she has a Speedo, and can rev past 4k, etc etc etc....

If it runs out nearly as well as the first, it will be stellar. Tune Up, and Brakes, are all I have had to do to it in 15k miles, wait, 17k miles.

Cats were plugged, started a "replacement" project, and then haven't had the time to finish it.
