    Front bumpers for `88-`98 Chevy??

    I would like to either buy a nice beefy bumper for the front of my `97 Suburban or build one.

    I like the ARB, but $1200 is a bit high.

    Anybody found cheaper alternatives? I have a buddy that...

    I'm going to try and let the Tranny last as long as it can, but the tech said the biggest problem was that the converter isn't locking up which is generating a bunch of heat when going uphill on the...
  6. Bad news; converter not locking up, $1700 rebuild price??

    Just took my suburban to the local Aamco for a $59.95 flush and they ran diagnostics on it and said the converter is not locking up so it is overheating the tranny, which is why the fluid looks so...

    Just bought the Suburban and it had the P1870 code come on during the 80 mile drive home so I dropped the pan and the old fluid was incredibly bad; almost brown.

    Napa Gold Wix filters are good, but I've found the Bosch that AZ sells seem to be pretty decent. Been a couple of years since I researched oil filters which is when Napa had the best for the money.

    What is the advantage of buying keys?

    I have a `97 Suburban K1500 that I would like to run either 32/10.50-15s or 33/12.50-15s on and it seems that they would fit by just doing a block in the rear and crank the bars up front another 1.5...
