    Default another new guy

    Just purchased my 2nd Suburban, a 2006 w/the really big block and all the tow options inc. autoride. The old burb was a 89 w/big block and tow pkg, but it was getting a little long in the tooth. Would like to hear from any who tow with the autoride. I pull a 31' Airstream and camp host in the summer for the State. Bird hunt, fish and motorcycle also. When home, I volunteer at the police dept and drive for the DAV transportation network.

    Welcome to the site.

    If it is the 8.1L big block you'll love the power but hate the gas mileage. Especially if you're haulng long distances.
