    I am thinking about buying a Suburban or Tahoe. I like the ones with "cargo" or "barn doors" instead of the tailgate and window. What are your thoughts? Thanks.

    I like the burbs with barn doors. My 86 had barn doors and I found them to be much more pleasing than a tailgate

    I prefer the barn doors. A liftgate is in second place. Tailgates are merely something way too big to lean over while loading the danged thing up.

    I also like the Barn Doors. The only downfall to them is that the center post of the doors obstructs your rear view but with today's technology you can always install a rear view camera.

    I just used my outside mirrors as I do now. My age doesnt allow me to look over my shoulder so I use mirrors. If they can't hear the screeching tires as I back up , I figure they had it comin":neutral::rofl:

    Wonder why they never made a way to have barn doors on a pick up as an option.

    Well I'm short so I would prefer barn doors if it makes it easier to load things into the vehicle...LOL

    Thanks guys. I think I like the barn doors because as some of you said, easier to load and unload. Thanks again for the input.
