I purchased a 2007 Suburban 2500 with 191k miles to tow my car trailer/project cars around. I bought it with a salvage title from an insurance auction. This is not the first time I have purchased from this auction, and overall I am happy with the truck. The 6.0 runs great, no check engine light, 4L80E transmission appears to be newer and has great looking red fluid and shifts perfect. Now the bad. It came from a rusty area and was rear ended. It didn't look too bad in the pics, but it was enough to crack the frame behind the tow hitch. So far research has told my this frame is unique to the Suburban 2500 and therefore cannot be fixed using the rear section from a pickup. That much I am pretty sure of. I am searching through tow hitches and I keep getting hitches for a 1500/2500 on ebay, basically telling me the tow hitch is the same. Anyone know if this is the case? I may be able to buy a frame section with a tow hitch so it might not matter, but I was shocked that the hitches would be the same even thought the frame is taller on the 2500. I confirmed this because I also have an 09 Yukon XL and measured both frames. Anyway it's been a while and good to be back on the forum.
