This was my first car...a '96 suburban 2500 with a 454. My parents have had it parked at their farm for years...ill be taking it off their hands, tuning it up, and using it as my tow rig she's a little rough, but I'm excited to have her back...man does this truck bring back memories

So awesome....GM was so stupid for discontinuing the 2500 Suburban. Used a few of these at work, they can carry the troops and haul a couple of scissor lifts. Do you have a trailer yet?

You actually can still get a new 2500, you just have to special order it. At least you can with the Yukon XL, not sure about the burban.

No trailer yet, need to get the suburban into the shop and determine how much I need to spend to get her right.

If you can find a tilt bed Hudson around you'll have a trailer for life. I've used them for years they are damn near bullet proof and the tilt bed is super convenient.

I do like the tilt trailers, but will probably stick with a standard car hauler for the weight savings...300-400 lbs difference I think

That suburban is going to make for one big comfy tow rig.

Messing around while waiting on the rollback...I was going to say I was displeased with the amount of rear stuff given the clearance up front, but then realized I didn't disconnect the sway bar...

Got my suburban to the shop

forumrunner_20111102_131056.jpg

Pumped a little fuel out, and it smelled fine. With a jump, it fired up with some spitting and sputtering. Brake lines are rusted through and spraying fluid, fuel lines are ok, but ill replace them when I replace the fuel pump and brake lines. Very excited to dive into this project - this vortec 7.4 suburban was my first car - why let it sit at my parents farm and wither away when it could be a perfectly good tow rig it has way fewer miles on it than I thought...I was sure it was 312k, but its only 212

I stopped liking tilt beds a while back - I was 15 I think - race car blew engine leaving about 70 lbs off of front of car. We rolled car on - would not tilt down - I jumped up on trailer with feet just behind front tire of car as I had done many times in past (it was slow to come down when fuel tank full). driver missed the pin but said OKAY - I stepped back, trailer went back up - car moved back two inches trapping my foot. Slammed my head to the ground - after hanging upside down by a severly twisted ankle for what seemed like a week a couple guys jumped up to get it to come back down.

No more tilters for me thank you!

Your Burbie will beat my C20 for comfort any day. But the 415 horses I got in my C will outtow it (0-60 in 6.9with a TJ on the trailer behind it)!

Ouch! Well, so far my experience hasn't included anything like that, of course I'm just hauling equipment not blown up stock cars so until I get into that line of work I'll stick to the tilt bed. Love the convenience. Good to know your head is still intact.

Sounds like a terrible idea but might be very fun to watch

I'm going to guess that a little more than the stock 290hp can be pulled from my big block, but I'm perfectly happy with it's pulling power - the 410 ft lbs. of toque is what makes me

It's actually rated to pull 2,000 lbs more than the 6.5 turbo-diesel was in the same truck.

Hey guys, do me a favor...I am working on getting my fan page put together (on facebook), and am struggling with setting up a landing page for non-fans, under the new facebook setup. I have installed 3 different apps, but none of them work - I think they were all for the tabbed browsing facebook offered before the most recent changes...

Anyways, the favor I ask is this...go to www.facebook.com/bobdanielsbuickgmc and like me, if you would. The more fans the better
