Hello, I'm new to the site and I apologize if I'm out of place. I just got my first chevy (suburban) a few months ago for my wife and am considering getting a c/k 2500 for my self. I can get a 1999 7.4L crew cab for $4000 with the 'go ahead' from my mechanic. Does anyone know if these are good, dependable trucks? Also, how 'bad' is the fuel economy? Thanks, and again sorry if I'm in the wrong spot.
