    99 suburban. 4x4, loaded, 5.7, Under 60k miles. Extremely mint. Incredible price. I thought my gmt400 days had come to an end. Didn’t even really want a suburban. But it was too good a truck to pass up. Seat leather ain’t even ripped yet. needs a wheel speed sensor, the ac compressor makes a little noise, and the dual climate controls in the back don’t work. He told me he was quoted some ridiculous amount to fix them and passed.

    Great score! I would almost feel bad driving around and putting miles on such a clean rig!

    I do feel bad. Lol. I have all these mod ideas but I can’t bring myself to molesting such a clean truck. I’d like to do the 4 hi mod, fog lights, maybe remove the trim outside, and find a set of newer Chevy wheels and just drive it.

    4Hi and fog lights are almost a necessity mod; if you've got a GMT400 you can't not do that.
    Personally I like the trim, it breaks up the massive surface area on these trucks. And a set of the K2XX 5-spoke rims would look great on here.

    NICE!

    Be strong and try not to mod it. Immediately change out every fluid and filter on the truck and keep up maintenance--it will be (almost) trouble free from here on out.

    I bought my 97 ECSB with 131K on it about 5 years ago (it has 164K now). It was owned by a parts manager of a GM dealer so was well maintained. I don't drive it much 'cause I have other trucks too, but I am keeping it as stock as possible.

    I'll advocate against the rest and say get a free flowing exhaust and a tune on there. Won't hurt driveability one bit and it'll actually get out of its own way.

    Nice Burb! Welcome to the platinum/pewter longroof club. Wish mine looked that nice inside, my seats are wearing like all the leather ones do. Underhood looks quite familiar. Enjoy it, make it yours, but I agree with the other people that one this nice and original shouldn't be changed much.
    If this color is as common in Ohio as it is in Texas, you'll be surprised how often you see a sibling truck. I'm doing a few things to mine to make it easier to find in parking lots. Upside of it is this color doesn't show dirt like white or black do.

    Theres nothing wrong with stock looking mods.... 4 hi and low beam mods for sure! Led reverse and led interior light bulbs is pretty much all that I have modded on my burb.
