I realized I probably should've picked a better name than Bowtie Brody, mainly because my first truck was a 97 GMC Suburban that served me faithfully for almost a year and about 12,500 miles totally from August 15th to April 1, I loved the Burb, but it let me down a few times, and it let me down badly. Blown radiator on the hottest day of the month, T-case lost a snap ring, bound up, shredded a gear and left me stranded one morning, and the resulting strain from that chewed up my rear planetary in the trans; all the leaks I've chased have just left a bad taste in my mouth, it might stick around, if it does I'll fix the leaks and my little brother can DD it, but in the mean time I needed something reliable, something economic. And as many of you also know, I've searched high and low for a new truck, found a few, but nothing ever worked out. Until this one, it popped up on CL one night around 10:00, I messaged the guy and he said to text him in the morning, asked all the important questions, went and looked at it, drove it home the hour and let it sit until I got tags for it. It's been an awesome driver, going from a high mile, run hard, wore out 350 to a lower miled, babied 454 is a night and day difference, it does need a few things though; injectors and basic servicing, fluids and whatnot, The Suburban, awaiting it's fate; whatever it may be, New DD, 454/4L80E, 3.73, 144,110 as of tonight, bought it with 143,968. Just recently pulled out the crappy train horns and loud speaker mounted by one of the PO's, threw in one of my restored underhood storage boxes, new headunit and speakers, and LEDs in the footwell and door lights. It was about 80% stock when I got it, wheels and exhaust are aftermarket and that's it. Going to order injectors and an FPR from FiveO motorsports next week, it'll get new lower intake gasket, cap/rotor, plug wires, coil and ICM, MAF, fuel and air filter once I get injectors done, there's still a ton of other maintenance I want to get done before any other serious mods. Comments and suggestions welcome!
