    Default Newbie from Northern Virginia

    Just bought a 2006 Suburban LT 1500 with 40K miles and all the bells and such , love it so far.
    What type of reliability can I expect from the 5.3. any weak points anyone knows of?
    Also have a 1997 2500 with 454 and 12,000 lb winch that is in great shape, 98K miles
    which I no longer need since we bought the cushy one which has spoiled us.
    Changed the wipers to the Rainx brand and they work flawlesly.
    Whats the best wax to use on these bad boys?

    thanks to all
