    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

    I'm curious about the mileage, is it even worth it to buy something with over 100,000 kms on it? Seems like it's very high and the problems would just pile up, no?

    The mileage? It had 142,000 miles on it when I got it. Just a baby as another poster eluded to. A truck I'm hoping runs for 500k with proper maintenance, I'm fine with the current miles and the price I payed. That's why I love these trucks. People in Canada get scared when they see 200,000 kms and want to give them away.

    I think after taxes I was just around $3500 And that was even dealer pricing.

    If I have hiccups along the way I'm fine with that too. These trucks are cheap to fix and parts are everywhere.

    Fuel mileage, my last tank got me roughly 600kms and only 1 trip of about 50kms was highway. The rest was all stop and go....
