Greetings from Clyde, NC (just West of Asheville). I've owned some GM's in the past but just recently became the proud owner of a 98 Suburban. I'd been wanting one for a long time and found myself needing one as well, as my need to tow (to pursue my hobby of off-roading) increased. I just bought a trailer to make that easier as well, now that I have something that can handle the additional weight. My allegiance to vehicles consists of whatever gets me from A to B and gets the job done, though I've primarily owned Fords over the years. Thus far I am really in love with my Suburban though. My hobby vehicles are my 88 Suzuki Samurai and my 1970 Scout 800A.
