    Getting started here after buying a 1994 Chevrolet Suburban, K2500, 5.7L, from a local ski resort.

    Runs good, some minor mechanical issues, one potential not-so-minor (P/S pump whines).

    Near plans include:
    Figuring out how to make dimmer switch rod reach multifunction switch
    Alignment, including centering steering wheel

    Future plans include:
    Replace front bench with buckets and radio console.
    Replace rubber floor cover - has holes.
    Build rear bumper with tire carrier - already working on the design.
    Install aftermarket power windows and door locks - found kit on Evil-Bay.
    Install cold air intake kit
    Install receiver hitch
    Convert lights to composites - found parts on Evil-Bay
    Replace grill - cracked mount - Ditto

    Not necessarily in that order :)

    Living at 9300' above sea level.

    Cold is relative. I grew up outside Chicago. The wind actually isn't bad. Considering I bought the 'burb from a ski resort, I know it works - plus inside information. ;)

    Welcome to GMTC! I searched ebay for that kit because I was curious. When I worked in the garage I saw a kit that was pretty cool. Basically, you removed the handle for the windows. Then you fit this 2" x 2" box onto the exposed splines in the window shaft. You ran some wires to it, and drove a screw thru a spot to stop it from spinning. It was all self contained. The switch was on the box, the motor inside. It looked a little funny but, I was pretty impressed. I have never seen that kit again.
