    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!"

    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!
