Huh I though mechanical failures were reserved for the day after the warranty runs out Tongue

RE: Suburban/Tahoe interest
Haha,

Well, I had a loan out for the buggy years ago when I started the oilfield. Built half of the buggy off borrowed money (I honestly don't think thats any different then taking out a payment plan for, say, an RZR)... plus I took out a LOT less than what an RZR costs..

Then I had the $9k Dodge payments, plus full coverage due to it being an auto loan...

So I was paying almost $500 in loans and insurance every month? Plus to wheel, needed fuel and food money.. Man it was an expensive hobby!!!

Of course, I know guys right now with brand new trucks paying the same amount of money just for 1 vehicle working the same jobs I work!!!

But none the less, currently at 0 payments.... Okay, wait, 0 payments on buggy and tow vehicle... I did go in with my ex on the 2015 civic... so now I am back at $410 a month since I kept it. But, thats a brand new vehicle I shouldn't have to worry about.. and trust me, when that lease is up... bye bye honda!!! 2 more years... ha at least I don't have to work on it...

Anyway, think I am going in the right direction finally.. plus the fact ill be able to travel the country with the light weight wheeler makes me happy... and even more so being able to go up North to wheel with my father again.

RE: Suburban/Tahoe interest
awesome!! thanks.

Ending up finding that I do have a full 7 pin harness all the way back to the bumper. So that saves some time and $$ for sure. But still have to do some splicing. Appreciate all the schematics! Still using all the samurai ones you gave me. Makes a world of difference.

RE: Suburban/Tahoe interest
I've been driving a 2005 Yukon XL and it is a great riding and pulling vehicle and yes it is awesome picking up a bunch of plywood and shutting the rear hatch! My dad had put a Transmission in about 30k miles ago and it drives and shifts perfect. Towed a camper to Maine this year with no issues whatsoever. Truck has just about 200000 miles on it but when your driving it you'd never know! Overall the body has helsd up pretty well but I did put new rockers on it.
