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.

For a concept car built to promote an animated movie about a snail that wants to go racing, this thing ain't half bad. The outsized monster you see before you started life as a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, and then went through a big-time Hollywood makeover before being positioned on the Chevrolet stand here in Chicago.

This 2013 "Turbo" Camaro Coupe is getting the promotion machine ratcheted up for a new DreamWorks tale by the name of, you guessed it, Turbo. Coming this summer, the movie will follow one snail's quest to become a race driver worthy of making the cut at the Indy 500. Like many DreamWorks vehicles before it, we're guessing that the petrolhead snail will star in a movie that adults (especially racing fans) with have no trouble watching with their kids. Check out the trailer below to see if you agree.
As for the car, we're told that it is "instrumental" in transforming Turbo from snail into racer. Helping the beastly pony car in this mighty task, is an ankle-cracking front splitter matched by a ungodly huge rear wing out back, a COPO hood and a supercharged (yes, supercharged) V8 engine making more than 700 horsepower. 24-inch wheels all the way around - 10-inches wide in front and 15-inches wide in back - should allow the "Turbo" Camaro to hook up with ease, as well.

For nine years, Diesel Power magazine has run the Diesel Power Challenge, this year's grindfest being "a week-long torture test that features seven events, nine trucks, 8,000 horsepower, and nearly 15,000 pound-feet of torque." The road to being crowned "the most powerful truck" starts with a dyno run, and then continues through the completion of a CDL-style obstacle course, an eighth-of-a-mile drag race while towing a 10,000-pound trailer, a quarter-mile drag race without a trailer, a fuel economy test in the mountains and finally a sled-pulling test through a 300-foot-long packed-mud pit.
What kind of trucks get into such a fight? Last year's winner, for instance - who upgraded his truck this year to prove he didn't "luck into the win" - drives a 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty with a 6.4-liter Power Stroke V8 upgraded with a custom intake, Elite Diesel triple turbos and a two-stage nitrous system. Another competitor has a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 powered by a 5.9-liter Cummins inline-six, upgraded with Garrett turbos, dual-stage nitrous, a seven-inch exhaust stack and twin fans built into the bed to cool the Sun Coast Omega transmission. The numbers on that truck: 1,255 horsepower, and 2,063 pound-feet of torque at the wheels. Naturally, as the image above might suggest, things don't always end well.
You'll find all five videos covering this years challenge below. A scene in the dyno video sums it all up perfectly: a competitor leaves his nitrous on too long and the crew is treated to some ominous poppings, he leans out the window, throws both hands up and shouts, "Amer'ca!"
