    Just purchased my 3rd Tahoe/Yukon. In this case a 2001 Tahoe LT with 230,000kms. Should have it Friday or Monday to park beside my 99 Tahoe.

    Just something about these trucks. I should add that this is my first of this body style.

    Couple questions for you.

    In what world is that a truck? @Urblock can tell you about a good truck

    Why do you enjoy buying beat down ****ty vehicles?

    The 92 Yukon GT has been by far my favorite vehicle out of any I've owned. Firebird, blazer, BMW 318i, Navigator, Tahoe, Beretta GT etc...

    My close uncle had a similar Blazer to the one you're talking about...Ole Black Betty lol.

    I like these. I've only ever driven a truck in GTA :)
    My brother has a van, won't let me drive it and for good reason.

    well for starters the entire chassis (frame, suspension, axles, etc) are identical between that Tahoe and a Silverado of the same year.

    secondly, having a bed is not a requirement to be a truck

    lastly, the LS engine family is legendary for a reason. crazy power to economy rating, and that engine is bulletproof. Can guarantee that motor will outlive the body its in and will roll 300,000 miles without breaking a sweat.

    Let's play find the rust :)

    Wasn't happy with the rims, so I decided to sand them. Still a couple stages to go but progress is good. Also removed the stone chip guard and replaced the lift gate struts 20180516_012428-1224x1632.jpg
