Nice! I love that gen, as well. Had an 04 that was just a superb vehicle. Wound up with too many kids, so we had to move to a van.

Man I'm jealous of these finds. I've been looking for stuff like this for a while now, but I haven't really found anything worthwhile on Craigslist and I don't use Facebook. That's a good looking rig- those are my favorite gen of Suburban/Tahoes.

Sweet. My BIL was collecting those generation trucks for his fleet awhile back. Now that his kids are out of the house, he’s been collecting MOPAR stuff....Chargers mostly. Nice find.

What is the downside to buying these Suburbans with 300 thousand plus miles on them? If an engine blows -- you gonna replace with a remanufactured engine?

Ya I agree 300K is passing the "red line" on most non diesel vehicles. But these LSX trucks run for ever with proper maintenance, it's the POS 4L60E trans that i worry more about out of everything. I really doubt this one is gonna blow anytime soon lol. Been driving it last 2 weeks in Dallas stop/go traffic-Texas heat and not one issue with drive train : ! Engine is smooth and has EXCELLENT torque on highway

Have had some of these in the past with much lower miles that performed and sound horrible


Either the engine has been replaced or rebuilt ?? Or lucked out and got one that has received GREAT maintenance from previous owners ??

The future cheapo Maaco paint job brings back fond memories of beaters painted up by Maaco, Earl and some places without a franchise. Always thought I got my money's worth on them. In the seventies I had a Fiat 124 Sport Coupe that was rear ended by some kid on a motorcycle. Bike wasn't harmed but I got a single estimate from a "normal" body shop for $500. Kid begged me not to call the police, said he worked at Shaky"s Pizza and when I arrived he peeled off the money despite my offering to get lower bids. Money in hand, I went to an imitation House of Earl and got the thing crudely banged together for fifty bucks. Certainly wasn't first class, but I remember it fondly fifty years later.

Ya Maaco for sure up'd their game in recent years. Years ago they were a joke and you had a 50/50 chance at a decent paint job. But checking out the work local Maaco here in my area does for under $800 REALLY impressed me thumbsup I can get a cheaper paint job with one of the side job paint guys on FB marketplace but no warranty like Maaco offers

OK.

How are you able to ascertain that his engine is "approaching the end of it's useful life"? Is this skill transferable, or is it more of a "gift"? I ask because I can only imagine that, should this skill be able to be taught and learned, that you'd make a great deal of money teaching.

No-I drive a $50,000 pickup...................

BTW-have the OP do a compression test-and pull off one of the valve covers-then we will see if he "scored".
