I live in one of the worst areas for rust belts. I can suggest this. In the late fall before your first dose of winter hand wax your car. Not just the outer parts of the panels but the door jambs,...

What I find odd is how everyone wants bluebook for them and yet they do not sell for 4-5 months unless they lower their price below blue book. My guess is they are thinking its in better shape than...

Pickings have been slim lately. May have to save up some more to get a decent maintained suburban. Thinking once spring hits the 4x4 market will get flooded with them due to people looking to get out...

In all honesty I wanted to stay under $6500. This Suburban would play the role as the vacation, long distance, bad weather transportation for the family. It would also be used for hauling some of my...

Went and looked at a 2003 with 130k. Asking price 4300. Found two things that scared me about the vehicle. I found a ton of sand up in the back inside of the frame rails. He stated he did not drive...

It's always funny when it's not your truck lol.

The flex fuel how long was that...

The bench seat I'm referring to would be the middle row. Sorry for the confusion.
The cluster issue with stepper motors sounds like an easy fix, other than removing a needle from a motor.

Thank you guys for all the info.
Hub bearings I'm more than familiar with. I learned to do those in a foot and a half of water on my Jeep in 40 minutes. lol
Is it just bad solder joints on...
Flushing a NEGLECTED transmission will make it go sooner. If it only has high miles and has been maintained then flush it. My last Jeep was owned by me for 285kK of its 325K. I flushed it annually...

Port and polish heads. Gasket match intake and exhaust ports. These are things I had done to my Jeep.
I'm not overly familiar with the Suburban yet. Have you checked for spark and fuel?

As an avid Jeep Cherokee and Wrangler fan I always had a great respect and like for the Suburban. I use my 99 Xj to plow, pull my fishing boat and pop up camper and haul my family during inclement...
