SubjectNo more bagged truck

So after 21 faithful years, the truck is now gone. Sold it within just a few weeks. It just no longer could keep up with the needs of the family. Ended up not being as tough to let go as I thought it would be...especially since I really never had any intentions to sell it. But I found a 2000 suburban that just fit us much better, along with I've been wanting a Suburban for a long time anyway.

I saw you mention selling it in a post on Fullsizechevy. I almost couldn't believe it, haha. Has to be hard to let it go after 21 years, but I totally understand your reasoning. Glad it wasn't too hard to get rid of, & I hope it went to a good home.

I know it's a family hauler, but any not too extreme plans for the Burb?

Once I found the Burban, it was quite easy to let my old truck go. This one has 200+ thousand miles but is in just fantastic shape. Just changed shocks today with some nice bilstein units and got new tires for it. On order are cross drilled and slotted rotors, stainless steel brake hoses, speed bleeders, and hawk pads. Down the road will be a new air intake, 2/3 drop (not any time soon), new speakers (already replaced the blown stock subwoofer), led parking lights and tail lights, and way down the road a set of stock ltz 20" wheels if I ever find a killer deal on a set of take offs. Way way down the road I want to suicide the rear doors, as I've always wanted a suburban like that. But honestly I doubt I'll ever actually do it.

I hear ya. Sounds like the Burb was taken care of! Just curious, where did you get your shocks? That's something I'll be looking into in the near future. I've heard a couple folks mention good things about Bilstein recently. I ran the Belltech Street Performance on the S-10, & I really like them; but I'm considering Bilstein as well for my Tahoe.

Sounds like good plans for the Burb.

I got them free from Van Steel (corvette brakes and suspension) as I'm doing some work for them on the side. Otherwise I'd probably have just gotten them through rockauto.com. Only better shock out there are QA-1s, and that's debatable. Although I had single adjustable QA-1s on the bagged truck that were nothing short of amazing. But I could tune them to how low or smooth I wanted to ride. Family going for a ride, turn them down. Knew I was going to drive a little fast or ride low, I'd turn them way up.
