    hey guys im thinking about purchasing a 1992 2500 suburban. Its missing the back bench seat. the single seat is still there. has 106000 miles on the clock. been sitting for a year. starts up good, probably could use a good battery and needs an inspection to be able to be on the road. . he wants 2500. im thinking of offering 2000 what do u guys think of this deal. .? your thoughts would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance

    I think if the inspection comes out good (and take it to a place you know what will give it a proper inspection) and you think it's in good shape then it doesn't sound like a bad deal at all. If you have a family of 8 then the back seat might be an issue - otherwise I wouldn't worry much about it. If the time comes that you miss it you can most likely head to a salvage yard and pick one up! The truck is old enough that there should be plenty of parts in the future for picking.

    $2000 isn't a HUGE investment so if it needs a little work within 6 months of your owning it it should be a big deal and might even be expected.

    Make sure you post pictures when/if you get it!

    Good luck,

    At least it has low miles. But yuck to the old school interior. If you do get it, and want to up grade the interior, I can get you the whole interior for 250, but ya gotta let me know soon. Its tan cloth.

    Doesn't sound too bad for $2000, But sitting for a year is where you need to focus. You'll definitely want to flush the oil and coolant.If you can flush the gas tank too. The engine won't run well on turpentine. run some kind of cleaner through the fuel system ( recommend seafoam). I bought a Chevy Cavalier ss Type 10 that they told me sat for a year. When I flushed everything out I think they under estimated the time. There was some nasty stuff in the gas tank and the oil didn't look too good either. After a good cleaning she ran like a champ.
