    I'm in the process of purchasing a new to me '96 GMC Suburban. It's been re-motored with a lower mile '93 Vortec judging by the plenum/engine cover.
    By the build sheet that I found in one of the many comartments are some of the highlights;
    2 Stage Multi leaf RR springs
    Front StabliZer Bar
    100 amp Alternator
    Four wheel Anti Lock brakes (presently with an amber warning light on the insturment panel
    42 Gallons fuel tank
    Deep tinted windows
    6 way Power Seats
    Keyless Entry (missing Fob)
    Front & Rear A/C
    Electric Locker in rear 3.78 ratio
    Skid Plate
    Rear heater

    I've got the ownber's manual and once I complete the purchase I may get into the TSM to address the issues listed above. Funds will dictate how soon I can addrewss any issues though.

    That is the handle that goes on the seat, to tilt it back I think. DSCN1578.JPG

    Next thing I would like to look into is a replacement Remote Entry fob, this truck apparently came with this system but over the last 20 years it has gone AWOL, how practical is it to get another one? If so, where are some seller/resellers.
    I know this truck model is long in the tooth, but I thought I'd give it a shot

    Thanks and a lift of the lynch lid for your response.
