    143K. It was meticulously maintained. there is a huge stack of receipts. The guy selling it (take that for what it's worth) says he bought it from a 90 year old man. Since it is clean and from MN. I bet it was driven down south every winter towing a trailer or something.

    If this is the right time for you, grab it, if not you can always find another one for that kind of money.
    Around here, one in that shape would easily go for 5k. 1800 is DEFINITELY a steal for this truck.

    Looks damn nice. I'd buy it.
    There are very few around here that are that clean. There are maybe 3 clean unrestored suburbans and 4 clean unrestored silverados around here. I love that generation of trucks, but could not bring myself to buy anything less than a clean one (I hate rust).
    A friend of mine has a rusty 200k mile 1990 suburban (have some interior shots of it in the WDYDTYCT thread a few days ago). Its not horrible looking, but it needs rockers, quarters, and rear door sills.
    His is a 1500 4x2 L05. It pulls pretty hard when you get on it (has a beefed up rebuilt 700r4 and 4.11s or 3.73s out back) and gets 15 mpg combined (not sure how he manages that with those gears). He let me drive it and it was a pretty nice riding truck with decent power for its size.

    It sounds like you need to buy this Suburban. I liked riding in that red C2500 you had, this would probably ride nicer with the 1/2 ton suspension and it's in nicer condition.

    Glad you got it. It's not the Hearse version, but it's still awesome. I've loved those things since we had one in my early youth.

    If I use it to get rid of a body does that make it a hearse?

    Nope. That makes it like my Lincoln. Erm, I mean...I have no idea.

    After the car was carbombed, I almost forgot to remove these from the trunk, as I had gotten so accustomed to keeping them there.

    Every time you step on the throttle in that thing, a Prius dies. Keep it up.

    My sister just bought a Prius. Wonder how many times he'll have to hit the gas before it gets to hers? Keep it up!
