    Default Just bought a 1993 GMC 1500 4x4 burb

    Hi all, my name is Darrell and my wife and I just bought a 1993 GMC Suburban. It is a 1500 4x4 with the 350 engine. Just what we wanted. If we had ordered it new, it would have the same options as it does. It has a bunch of miles on it and will need some work, but I will tackle most of it myself.

    Been reading the posts, and found a lot of great info.

    My first project will be to fix a leaky gas tank filler. Leaking right at the gas cap. Rusted pretty bad. I'll pick up a better one at the wreckers, and swap it out. Then on to the shocks. Got one broken one and two leaky ones.

    Both of us really like driving this beast. Going to call it Samson as my wife likes to name vehicles.

    I'll try and post about the work I do so others can learn from my mistakes. I'll probably be asking a bunch of questions too.

    Well I guess we will be sharing notes from time to time. Mine has a bunch of miles on it, but I'm still driving it for short trips around town. I either have to decide to go through the engine and trans or jump ship to something that I want to put the effort into.
