1988 3/4 ton 2500, K20 Suburban in very good condition. 350, new transmission last year. New 35" BF goodrich tires in 2012. I have owned this truck for 4 years and hate to see it go but have other interests that I want to move on to. It starts, runs, drives very good. I take it on 60 mile trips to camp on a regular basis and trust it to run good every time. Minor surface rust on the frame but body has none. Paint looks very good overall but there are scratches/minor blemishes from some offroad use. Not beaten offroad, just put it in 4 low and crawled through trails and class 4 roads. This thing is a beast! The best part is the truck has 3 bench seats so you can throw 9 people in and go for a cruise.
Truck was always parked after hunting season (early december) and never brought out on the roads until late april/may (just took it out of storage last week) so no exposure to salt. The interior is in good shape. I covered the front seat as protection. Carpet in good shape. The radio works well, all lights work. Aftermarket horn installed. Rear passenger side cargo area window cracked but I have just been running it as is for a while now. New Drivers side window motor. The passenger side is slow and may need some attention but the motors are cheap on ebay (less than $50 if I recall). AC does not work...suspect it just needs a charge but never bothered to get it done, Heater makes a racket on high, Power locks do not work and need attention, Cruise works sometimes and sometimes not. You probably won't be on the highway with this anyway!
I've owned several project vehicles in varying states of disrepair prior to this truck. When I bought it, I bought it because I wanted something I didn't have to tow to the mechanic every week and that's what I got. The truck starts every time, runs good, looks good and when you have a bunch of people in it with a cooler, makes for alot of fun! Now if you think the truck is perfect and everything works like a new vehicle or restored show truck, please move on. It has some weekend projects left in it, but nothing that will prevent you from going for a ride.
Email me questions. I am potentially looking for a john deere gator, polaris ranger, Can-Am Commander if anyone has an interesting trade proposal.

Automotive News reports that General Motors may slash production or ramp up discounts in order to deal with an oversupply of pickup trucks. GM currently has more than double the standard supply of pickups, and the vehicles are threatening to dampen the automaker's profits for 2013. Typically, automakers try to sustain a 60- to 75-day supply of vehicles, but GM is currently loaded with a 139-day supply, as of last month. At the end of November, the automaker was sitting on 245,853 units.

The manufacturer says that it will adjust production accordingly before laying any incentives on the profitable pickups. Even so, there's some concern that the inventory swell could hurt the roll-out of the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. GM actually began slowly stepping back production in August, but it's clear the company will take further action as it heads toward the end of the year and into the next. Analysts predict the automaker could reduce pickup manufacturing by nearly half in the first quarter of 2013.
That still may not be enough to keep GM from laying extra cash on the Silverado and GMC Sierra. While the company's incentive spending was down in November compared to the same month in 2011, both the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 saw double-digit percentage increases in sales last month while the Silverado and Sierra numbers slid compared to a year prior. Incentive spending could help move more trucks and add some balance to the GM inventory surge.
General Motors has announced a large investment in its Spring Hill, Tennessee facility. The former home of Saturn production will be getting a $167 million addition to a previously announced $183 million, to cover a pair of new midsize vehicles. The investment is expected to create 1,800 jobs at the factory.

That $350 million is being divvied up for a pair of programs at Spring Hill. The first will take the bulk of the money ($223 million) and create 1,000 of the 1,800 jobs, while the other will take the remaining $127 million and generate the leftover 800 positions. But GM says the investment will cover "midsize vehicle programs." So what could they be?
The leading candidate in our minds is a new crossover for Buick, called the Anthem, that will slot between the Encore and Enclave, but will be slightly smaller than the Equinox and Terrain. As we've explained, the new model will likely be the first product to sport GM's new D2UX platform, which will eventually replace both the Delta and Theta platforms. Spring Hill is already building the Equinox, so there could be some credence to this theory.
Chevrolet's "Runs Deep" tagline has finally been run into the ground, replaced with the Bowtie brand's "Find New Roads" slogan that's part of parent General Motors' plan to unify its everyday brand's marketing efforts worldwide. The new Chevrolet campaign was ushered in on prime time last night during the Grammy Awards on CBS, and the first spot, a 90-second full-line ad, also marks the first appearance of the 2014 Corvette Stingray in a commercial.
Being a full-line ad, the commercial is composed of vignettes centered on different vehicles in the brand's lineup. The all-new 2014 Impala also makes its first commercial appearance in dapper fashion, and time is spent on a skateboarding Sonic and a bouquet of brightly colored Spark hatchbacks driven by fashionable women. The ad starts and ends with Chevy's green halo car, the Volt, along with a young girl with her robotic dog (yes, really).
Chevrolet's "Runs Deep" campaign got off to a rocky start in the fall of 2010, but it did last for a couple of years with some tweaks. This new one, "Find New Roads" seems more intent on drawing new customers into the fold than the outgoing tagline, which seemed to play more toward the brand faithful. It admittedly reminds us more than a little the short-lived "Find Your Own Road" Saab motto (which, we note, was conceived while the Swedish brand was under GM's control), but no matter, we still think it's got more long-term potential than "Runs Deep."
