i am thinking more and more about getting rid of the 99 and going to a 89-91 suburban, I know that I would look for a silverado package but are there any other differences from one to another and what would be better. i am really looking for something that I can lift easier and not have to worry about the leather or having a "nice" truck, something to throw the dogs and kids into, go camping and not worrying. I also would plan to rhino line the interior so that it can just get hosed out when i take it off roading99 K1500 Suburban LT "THE BEAST"

my current has the barn doors but I know the older burbans have a much thicker bar in the windows on the back, but I have heard horror stories regarding the tailgate with the roll-up windo, are some window in the tailgate manual or power

Instead of going through all the hassle, why not just treat the current suburban as you would the other? I thought I was alone in thinking like that... If it's nice, I'd rather keep it nice and not have it trashed. If I want it trashed.. I'll buy a trashed one.

Its not that I want to trash it its that I just want to be able to do certain things to it and the 99 is just to nice to do that. I want the interior out and rhino lined so the dogs cant rip up anymore interior and be able to treat it like a truck without having to buy a pickup, I cant afford to have the burban, a pickup, wifes car, and a comuter for me to drive back and forth for work. I like the idea of gutting from the second seats back, rhino ling and not having to worry about the muddy dogs or loading a bunch of RR ties into it and getting it dirty. Not to mention that to lift one of those is way cheaper then an IFS truck
