    Default Better late than never!!

    Hi all,
    Signed up about 2wks ago. Ive been working on debugging the small pains in my Suburban, so I havent done my introduction yet. Im currently driving my 2nd Suburban. First one was a 95 Chevy that lasted 253k before the vaccum lines went sour and the engine quit. Im currently in a 96 GMC with 149k and its still acts like its at 20k. I do have a trans issue to work out, hopefully it isnt serious. The engine is great, which is a suprise considering the previous owner is a drunk.

    For those interested in my reason for an 8 passenger that drinks like the last owner, well, its simple. Wife and 4 kids. We travel a LOT and I like the space. Everyone gets a decent amount of space. And I LOVE the front/rear climate control layout. Kids whine because I like to be chilled. I can cook them while enjoying my own temp, and the vent layout is perfect. Then there is the obvious 350ci that pulls everything I have ever hooked to it. Ive never had an overheat problem towing with a 350ci. Ive pulled a 24' camper with my old gmc conversion van, and it was like it didnt exist behind me. Love it. Thats me, thats my story, and now Im off to offer advice/info and receive the same!
