    Hi Guys,
    Purchased my first Tahoe on Friday and I am really excited about it. It's a 2010 LTZ with 135k on it. Started researching some things and found myself here and have already found some good info. My clock on the Bose head unit only displayed : no numbers and I couldnt figure it out. A thread here walked me through the fix and its all set now. I also already added the Range Tech fuel management disabler. The response from the truck is so much better, glad I learned about that.
    Over all the truck is in good shape needing a few minor things. I already bought the replacement button stickers for $5 on Amazon, that made the dash look so much better. I also ordered the new dash cover so I can hide the cracked dash, and upgraded halogen headlights to give it a more modern look. I am coning from a 2017 Jeep grand cherokee and this is a much nicer vehicle. I mean yes its older so it has more wear and tear so to speak BUT it has way more features and drives nicer than the brand new Jeep. Just crazy! Did I mention I only paid $7,300 for this and my Jeep was $40,000 Lmao So glad I am getting rid of that.

    Welcome from Miami Beach&NYC Mike!

    Nice find on your 2010 LTZ Tahoe. Hopefully you can get a decent price on your Jeep when it is over and done. You picked the perfect time of year to get rid of it.

    Welcome to the forum man... I've had 4 gm suvs all big... Wife wanted to trade her tahoe in on a durango, basically the same thing as a cherokee with a few less things in 2013, I hated that thing, most uncomfortable thing I had driven. BUT she liked it for a few years... You found a damn nice deal on that tahoe for sure, just remember to keep up and do maintenance on her and she will serve you well.. My burb is turning 130k tomorrow on the way home, Bought it with 97k 1.5 years ago, for about double what you gave, so yeah you did real good man. Enjoy it and there is nothing like a body on frame ride vs that unibody crap.

    Welcome from NH (with a foot of snow dropped last night, and 3-7 more inches expected tonight). Nice weather for a 4x4 or AWD truck!

    Lots of great folks here who are willing to share their experiences and perspectives.

    I wish you a good and long time with your truck.

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys! Im super pumped about the deal, I was having trouble finding one with under 150k miles for under 15k with the options I wanted. I feel like this guy was just ready to get rid of his gas guzzler as he was driving 100+ miles a day. I also have a 2011 GMC Sierra 1500 so its basically the same thing lol. Im From RI so it will get plenty of 4wd usage! Ill update with some pics once the snow subsides hahaha

    It was a lease and its up in Feb. I bought this Tahoe a little early because it was a steal, guy didn't know what he had if you ask me. I was tired of paying 430/mo for my jeep so I wasn't leasing again. That was my third one and its a waste of money. I am in my GMC Sierra mon-fri so for me to pay that for a weekend car was getting old fast. Im so happy I made the switch. Once I clear up a few things she will be like new. Im having the upholstery guy do some repairs next week, all minor stuff.
