    I wish the 88 suburban I drive around in the winter looked half a nice!

    I don't drive it in the summer because its all black and the AC is broken. A oven on wheels.

    Post back another picture, after you get serious about lawn care and add a few scratches and dents to that monster.

    A 12" lift and 35" super swampers would make it look even better.

    80's Chevy trucks rule! I've got 2 of them........
    Nice 'burb!
    I agree about the lift kit, except that if you put 12" on it, you could EASILY fit 44's on that monster. To make 35's look good, all you'd need is 6" lift. Higher than stock is ALWAYS better.

    Now accepting donations for a lift kit, please mail checks to:

    Just kidding!

    The Suburban has about 105k miles on it, but the body is in great condition, and we are almost sure that the engine has been rebuilt recently. Here's the story on our 'burb,
    It was siezed in a drug raid by police and used undercover for a while, the previous owners bought it from the police, they "burnt out" the engine (those were the words they used) pulling their boat around here in the mountains, and somehow it got to Mink Pontiac Buick GMC Trucks in Galax. We bought it from Mink. It has a 350 in it, not a 454. Only complaints about it are a whine in the rear end, and IT IS A SLED IN THE SNOW! It's a 9 passenger, with all bench seats, LOTS OF ROOM, MUCH BETTER THAN A MINI-VAN! We do need a set of load helper springs for when we pull our trailer. And Lawncruiser, we do use it, it really doesn't get washed that often.
