If he sells it, it'll likely end up either with big swampers or 24" chrome wheels. Can't have anything nice.

Personally I'd go with 20s cause I'm not unreasonable.

It looks like a 2 wheel drive version.

Realized I don’t have any good pics of my ‘burban.

Mines an ’07, but it’s pretty nice. 2500, 9 passenger 👍 4x4. Just got a BDS lift on it and 305’s.

Im setting it up for backcountry. Need to get a bumper, lighting, and a couple radios in it.

My wife would probably murder me if I lifted her suburban lol.
I almost had her talked into letting me put a duramax in it, until I told her it would need a 3" body lift....that was a hard no

Buddy of mine who own a Ram specialist repair shop, he took a ‘96 Burban, and put a 5.9 Cummins and a G-56 6-speed manual into it. Dana 60’s, whole bunch of other stuff. 35” tires, 4” lift. 👍

Pretty sweet rig. He was selling it for $25k.

He showed it to me about 2 weeks after I bought my suburban.

It was a nice rig, but a little rustic for the wife and kids probably. Mines got leather seats and is quiet and rides nice. 👍

Years ago, my 4wd diesel F250 died suddenly and wasn't worth repairing. I bought a 2wd diesel F250 instead of a gas motor 4wd 2500 Suburban a friend had for the same price. I still wish I'd bought the Burb. It was in great shape minus a leaking power steering pump but I was all ate up with diesels at the time. Stupid.

I have a '97 k2500 Suburban with the 454.

It's been sitting a while, but is on this year's list to get back to daily use.

My squares. The dusty one (dark grey 83) is the truck in my avatar, I tore it all apart a couple years ago and put the axles and drivetrain from it in the orange truck (86) that I built from the frame up. I had a 89 Blazer plow truck that had a decent drivetrain in it but we cracked the frame (she was rusty), so I pulled the axles and drivetrain from that and put them in the grey Chevy. Grey Chevy will be my 14 year old son's truck when he turns 16. I have to do a mild rebuild on the 350 that came out of the Blazer before I put it all back together. Then I'll get some 31x10.50 tires and it'll be good to go for him to destroy. Both trucks are 4wd, grey is now 1/2 ton and the orange is 3/4 ton.

Sweet Suburban 😎

My son's 2007 Silverado. He did a 6" RC lift, I'm actually shocked at how nice his truck rides and how well it does off-road. Those bumpers for your trucks are stupid-expensive, like $1k+ for a front bumper that doesn't look funny, because of the huge side trim on them.
