    Default I'm getting a 89 suburban

    Hi I just registered yesterday. I am getting a 89 suburban v1500 in a week or so. I can't wait. It has 130k on it, new rocker panels, new inner fenders ,exhaust, all new lights, shocks,body mounts,gas tank, fuel filter, head liner and heads rebuilt because it smoked a little on start up. and after i get i plan on some mods like step bars, and boost the hp. So I'm new to this site. I was a ford truck owner but traded my 1999 f259 deisel for this burb and getting some cash to boot to put back into it .

    Sweet truck. Simple mods to start with would be to consider a high flow air filter and a cat back exhaust.

    nice looking burb! I have a 1990.

    Cold ir intake is not a bad idea but imo the spacer is a waste of money. Even with the cai you wont feel anything in the seat of your pants so dont expect much performance wise.

    Thanks, I am getting my suburban this Saturday. Then I'm getting the hood and roof repaiinted because of clear coat peeling. The rest of it looks really good. Then some simple mods and my wife says i have to get a set of nerf/step bars. I see jegs has a sets of S.S. for $240. I hope I made a good choice on the vehicle.
