    I thought that would be a problem until I got my Burb. The door post doesn't even intrude on my conciousness. I just don't see it any more.

    The brain fills in the missing info.

    ME: "Hoooooo!! big headlights back there on the right, and left, is it bikers?"
    BRAIN: There's a half radiator on each side, something in the middle in a script font... Uh lemmee see now... uh, it says Peterbilt. Don't hit the brakes hard!"

    Cuz it would look like a walk-in bathtub you can get with your medicaid insurance.

    Go Suburban, you'll be happy. The extra space is really worth it

    I'd love to get my wife a suburban, and it'd have to be the barn doors. Personally, I love my truck too much to get an SUV, but my wife wants an SUV. She had a Durango before, so sometime after I get back I'm going to show her the light. Now that I think of it, I should buy it for her, with a lift, and then tell her "Sorry, but the lifted one had a GREAT deal on it that I just couldn't pass up, so I HAD to get it."

    To Be Completed (Eventually):
    6" BDS Suspension lift | KingShocks Front and Rear Coil Overs | 4.56 Gears | 35" A/Ts (TBD) | Cervinis 07-12 Silverado Ram Air Hood | Fab Fours Front Winch Bumper (CS07-H2051-1) | Fab Fours Full Size Rear Bumper (CS07-W1850-1) | RX-2 Series Main Grille (Black) | Line-x Bed and wheel wells | Skid Plates | Rizor Automated Tonneau Cover | Custom Bed Insert | RBP RX-3 Series Nerf Bars | Kenwood Excelon DNX9990HD | JL Audio Stealthbox (2x500RMS) | JL Audio HD 1200/1 Class D Mono Amp | JL Audio C5-653 Components (Front) | JL Audio C5-650 Components (Rear) | JL Audio Slash v2 300/4v2 Class A/B Amp

    If you prefer barn doors I think you will be happy with the Suburban. I love my barn doors on my Burban, actually I love pretty much everything except that it's not 4wd!
