    Default My new 1300 dollar Burban!

    I picked this bad boy up today. She is an 89 1500 4x4 Suburban. 78k miles, power everything that works, front and rear AC that works, CC,and 3rd row seat. She has a few dents and bondo in the driver door, but solid as a rock! Not the tinyest bit of rust in the floors, rockers,fenders, of quarters. It had a little bit of surface rust on the roof,but it got sanded down and primed. Not to bad of a score, I think.

    On with the pics.

    these are crappy cell phone pics, I'll take some better ones after I clean it up.

    Sweet score! It looks rather thirsty, though!

    can't wait to see her all cleaned up, I think she went to a good home! Lots of room in that mobile and looks to be in decent shape, congrats!

    NICE score! I got mine for free from my best friend, but it was in MUCH worse shape than that!

    Thanks Y'all. I think it'll be a fun truck to bum around in after a few mild mods.
    @moogvo ,It's not to bad on gas, it got about 14-15 the 180 mile trip back home. Only used 12 gals and thats on 2 lane country roads. I was surprised.

    I've always really liked those old Suburbans, especially with some tasteful mods! Very jealous!

    Thanks again yall.

    Here's what I got so far. 4" front springs, 4" ORD rear shackle flip w/NOS spings,14B SF 6 lug rear with detroit locker, 4.56 gears, 35x12.50s, new headliner, new rubber mat instead of carpet kit, headers, true duals, and a cowl hood. After I get it riding right, I plan to do the body work and give it a paintjobs. I'm hope this will be a fast budget friendly build.
