    There are all kinds of parts on this truck.

    1996 GMC K1500 Suburban
    Wrecked 2/19 - been holding off on selling but have to get rid of it
    Located in Louisiana

    Built L31
    Built 4L60E
    Built 14 bolt semi floater 9.5" with True Trac (front rear diff geared 4.56:1)

    There are so many good/upgraded mechanical parts on this truck it would take a while to list.

    There is a 6" diff drop RCX lift & 3" body lift under the truck, but some pieces may need to be replaced.

    I'd make a nice deal with someone who wanted to take the whole rig off my hands to transplant the engine/drivetrain into a project truck/SUV.

    Post here or send me a PM. Thanks.

    So how much you trying to get. Post some pics. How bad off is it. My wife would have a cow if I drag it home. That dont mean I wont though. How many miles you got on the engine, and trans. How is the interior. I really dont need a lot, but my millage is getting kind of high. I know my trans will go sooner or latter. Im still running my OE engine and trans. 246,000 miles. Your in Baton Rouge rite. Im In Lafayette, so not to far. Can I dolly it home, or do I need a trailer.

    Seems like a reasonable starting point for negotiation is $5000 (whole truck - $3K rear/$2K transmission/$3K engine & accessories)
    It's pretty beat up. Frame is probably out of square. Major damage to passenger side rear - big dent/broken glass/twisted & pulled body
    Engine/trans have less than 30,000 miles.
    Interior is in close to very good condition with tan cloth 60/40 split bench with flip down armrest/console.
    You'd probably need a trailer to get it home.

    I really dont have room for it. Was hoping the inside was gray, but thats all good too. I am having my drivers seat recovered in OE fabric tomorrow. If I was in the country with a lot of room, I would come and get it, but Im in the middle of Lafayette, in a subdivision ,so space can be an issue. Thanks for the reply, but I think Im going to have to pass.
