Up for auction is my GMC Suburban Sierra Classic with the 350 cubic inch fuel injected engine.  It has an automatic overdrive transmission and manual locking front hubs. 

 It is in very nice, nearly all original condition.  The only thing that isn't original is white paint and lower strip of tan paint that was redone a short time back.  The only portion of tan that was re-painted was from behind the front wheel well back.  It was redone because some of the clear coat was peeling on the white and there were some small rock chips on the lower tan portion.  The re-paint portion is not car show quality, but is decent.  

It is a Colorado and Wyoming vehicle that is rust free, with the exception of one small rust bubble under the edge of the passenger side mirror and one on the inside bottom edge of the rear passenger door.  The under carriage has no road salt rust damage.  It has a small ding on the right rear corner of the cab approximately 2 feet above the right rear tail light.  It has a dent in the rear bumper at the driver side center.  Other than that, it is in very nice shape for its age.  The paint on the hood and roof is very nice and shiny and the dash is in very nice condition, so I believe this confirms what I was told from the previous owner, that it was always kept in the garage and very well maintained.

The tires have approximately 60% of the tread left.  They are Goodyear Wranglers.

All of the power train parts are original and are in good working order and have been serviced and well maintained or have been replaced as needed. 

It does have a new windshield.   

It starts, runs, drives and stops very well.  It has a slight wandering issue in steering if on a very uneven road.  The AC works, but is not ice cold, so probably needs a little Freon.  We don't need AC here in Wyoming.  The rear AC unit fan rattles a little when it is running. The right rear door lock sticks a little, you just have to click the lock button a couple of times.  The left rear seat belt has been replaced at sometime, but with a grey one and it does not roll up right.  It does have an under the dash stereo CD player installed that works great even though the antenna is broken off.  The factory stereo is still in the dash, but is not hooked up.  The front seat cloth upholstery is starting to separate a little at the pleats in the center of bottom cushion.

I have tried to list all of the little flaws.  It is a very nice classic body style older Suburban that runs and drives very nice and is quite dependable.  Again, it is a 4 wheel drive.  I wouldn't hesitate to take a trip in it anywhere. I believe it is a very trust worthy vehicle with a classy looking color and the more unique GMC look.

I do have some contacts for shipping and will assist in anyway I can with them.  If you aren't able to pick up immediately, I can store the truck inside my garage for a little while (with prior arrangements). 

I can email more pics if needed.

If you have any question feel free to call Jon at (361) 960-1650 or send an email.

I do reserve the right to end this auction early since I do have the truck for sale locally.

If you have zero Ebay transactions, please contact me before bidding or your bid may be rejected.

Thanks for looking and bid with confidence.

2014 Chevy Silverado details continue to dribble out

Wed, 03 Apr 2013 17:45:00 EST has gotten its hands on a few more details concerning the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and the 2014 GMC Sierra. General Motors held a conference call on the two trucks, allowing Jeff Luke, executive chief engineer for both, to answer a few questions. Luke said truck buyers are largely concerned with power and fuel economy, and as such, GM will continue to explore new methods of providing both. That may translate into any number of drivetrain permutations, including light-duty diesel engines, eight-speed transmissions or even a twin-turbocharged V6.
What's more, both the 2014 Silverado and its GMC twin will boast a tow rating of 11,500 pounds, but only when equipped with a max-trailering package. Without that special package, the rating drops to 10,200 lbs for regular cabs and 9,700 lbs for crew cabs. Buyers will no longer be able to opt for a 4.10 gear ratio.
We're also excited to hear that GM plans on making the Z71 package into something more than just a few a stickers. While Luke didn't go into details, says "it will get significant improvements in the future." Head over to the site for a quick rundown of the call's highlights.

GM announces 6 recalls covering nearly 720k cars

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 14:30:00 EST

General Motors has announced yet another sprawling recall campaign, with six separate elements covering 717,950 vehicles on US roads. At this point in 2014, it's starting to seem like there are more days with a GM recall than without. Perhaps most troubling about this latest volley, though, is that every vehicle is from the past few years, indicating that GM's quality woes may not be limited to pre-bankruptcy vehicles.
The largest element of this latest campaign covers 414,333 units, and includes the 2011 to 2012 Chevrolet Camaro, 2010 to 2012 Chevy Equinox, GMC Terrain and Cadillac SRX and the 2011 to 2012 Buick Regal and LaCrosse. Only vehicles with powered, height-adjustable seats are covered. In these particular cars and crossovers, the bolt that secures the height adjuster actuator may loosen of its own accord and in some cases fall out completely. If this happens, the seats will be able to move both up and down. GM claims the vehicles are safe to drive, provided drivers don't vertically adjust their seats. This particular issue has caused one crash and three injuries.

Chevy Silverado edges Ram 1500 in Consumer Reports two-truck shootout

Tue, 17 Sep 2013 16:31:00 EST

Forget Corvette versus Viper. When it comes to important head-to-head comparisons, fullsize trucks are where domestic automakers really care. And until the redesigned Ford F-150 makes its debut, the Chevrolet Silverado is going to have plenty to brag about thanks to a new Consumer Reports shootout against the Ram 1500.
It was a tight race among these V8-powered titans, but the all-new 2014 Silverado (and its GMC Sierra twin) barely edged out Ram's updated pickup with a score of 81 points - enough to make it the institute's top-rated fullsize truck on the market. Its narrow victory over the Ram, which finished just three points back, was due to its superior fuel economy, better towing and payload capacity and conveniences like a lower step-in height, easy-to-use tailgate and rear bumper steps that make loading and unloading less of a chore.
Importantly, CR notes that buyers with less heavy-duty truck needs might actually prefer the Ram over the Chevrolet, since its high points include a smoother ride thanks to its coil spring rear suspension, dominant infotainment system with Uconnect, and a big thumbs up for the available Hemi engine and eight-speed automatic transmission.
