    Default This is how my year started and how my Suburban saved my life

    well i hate to see her leave even if she is all banged up. bought her for 5 insurance gave me 8 so i guess i'm happy that i got the cash but most importantly no one was hurt.

    hit a curve to fast lost control swerved hit a tree went back on road and laid it on its side

    now to hunt for another truck

    Well she aint purty anymore but it looks like she did her job and saved your bacon.
    Good luck on your search for a replacement, unfortunately your replacement will always have to live up to the achievements of your first one.

    Glad to hear you didn’t get hurt and even happier that you got another Burb as a replacement. Some of us find it hard to drive anything but a Burb, must be hereditary. The wife made me go out and get another one when our 86 died of cancer.

    Good luck with the new one, not that you need it.

    Glad that you are ok and found a nice replacement. I am considering doing the opposite to my 05 yukon xl. We want to switch from captains chairs to a bench.
