Y'all probably don't remember me because I didn't post much here, but this is my former GM suv.... ....which is why my username is ArcticYukon. It was a 1998 Yukon SLE 4wd with between 4 and 6 inches of lift and 33" tires on 20" Helos... and what a pile of junk it was! First of all, we went and looked at it when it was dark, and the interior lights didn't work so we couldn't see just how bad the interior was. In the low light outside, we couldn't see how bad the exterior was. The truck ran and shifted fine, but it had a miss and if you were at cruising speed and put the pedal down to pass someone or whatever, the rear of the truck would sway sharply from side to side as if it had death wobble of the rear. We really took a bath on it. Well, we traded it straight up for a Grand Cherokee... and a few vehicles later, we've come somewhat full circle. This past weekend, we just picked up a 2000 Chevy Tahoe LS 2wd, LM7, tow package (HD trans cooler, factory hitch, factory 7 pin connector) 3.73 rear w/ posi and electronic traction control, tow hooks, and skid plate. The truck has 203,000 miles on it and still starts, runs, and drives like new. The motor is all original on the original build, the transmission was rebuilt 3 years ago. This is a classic example of "rough around the edges, but she's got it where it counts." The rough part is, it needs a paint job pretty badly, has a few small dents in the front passenger fender and 1 in the front passenger door, and a dent in the bumper. The interior isn't in terrible shape, just stained carpets, a rip in the driver's seat, and some cracking in the passenger front seat. The tabs that hold most of the switches in are breaking, so they're just kind of resting in place - but they all work. The dash has a crack in it and the dash bezel is a couple cracks and the previous owner cut the radio slot for a double DIN receiver and did a pretty piss poor job at it. The headliner is sagging too and for whatever reason, the speakers have ZERO bass haha. Either way, we're pretty pleased with the purchase. It has new shocks, new battery, new water pump and it starts, runs, shifts, and drives as if it were new. We're planning on fixing it up like new and adding a few custom touches to it. Not planning on going crazy with it, just want to make it look as good as it drives. Anyway.... tips, advice, warnings about quirks, common desirable mods, suggestions on preventative maintenance to curtail common problems... yeah all of that is totally welcome. I'll update the thread with whatever we end up doing to it. Oh and uh.... I'm known by Basslicks on several other forums. So if ya see that name, it's me!
