Thread: In what year

    Default In what year

    Hi all. I have a '99 Silverado that is rusting very badly on the bottom. It is time to get a different truck.

    I am looking for a long suburban with a double door rear doors, not the hatch with window that opens, but with left & right doors.

    What was the last year Chevy offered those doors on Suburbans?

    I don't know the range of year/models that offered the barn doors, but I was looking at a 99 K2500 with a big block yesterday that was just so sweet and it had barn doors.

    The reason the Silverado is rusting underneath, it was kept in a tent for 3 years. Parking a hot truck in a tent moisture from the ground would condense on the underside. This mess started and can't be stopped. I have had the brake lines rusted through and have been replaced. the rotors & calipers replaced twice. The bolts on the springs won't break loose, it's a f iin mess under there.

    The body however being galvanized is perfect.

    Huh, I've never heard of that. What do you mean by a tent? Like a truck-shelter type of portable garage unit? What part of the country, BTW?>

    I noticed much rust on my burb, since I had it in a portable garage.
