Thread: New Suburban

  1. #1

    Default New Suburban

    Picking up a '97 Suburban 1500 either tomorrow or Saturday! Looking forward to it! It's an amazing truck! 120k miles. Needs the usual fixes (fuel lines, rear break lines etc) for a 97, but nothing crazy!
    This is it (from the ad):

    looks like you bought a nice suv, now you just need to get aftermarket wheels, nerf bars and tinted windows on it. but other than that it is a nice suburban, good find

    Thanks guys! I plan do do upgrades in the future, but drive it stock for now. I'll take plenty of pictures when I have it at my house. Looking like tomorrow is the day I drive it home, if not, then Sunday.

    Looks like its in great shape...also, the miles are very reasonable given its year. Looking forward to seeing interior pics. Congrats!

    Truck is now at the local repair shop in my town! They are going to start tune up/inspection etc tomorrow. Got a few more pictures. The last 3 were from the shop, and the first one was when I went to go get it. Oh, and a 2.5 hour wait in the DMV today....how fun is that....not! It was worth it though!!
