A Little Work For An Older Gem
By Rambo on


1999 Chevrolet Suburban C1500 LT 4dr SUV


Bought this Sub with 60K on it. Now at 105K. Many mods made to it. K&N Air Filter, Slotted front rotors, HypertechIII programmer, True dual exhaust with glass packs/headers, 2" front suspension drop, wider tires, 18" wheels, larger front brakes. All this enables 18+MPG on the hi-way. Makes heads turn even at 9 years old. Will flat out fly for a heavy SUV. Won't beat a Mustang but eats "Sport" trucks up for lunch. Cruises like it's on glass after the 2" drop in the nose. All together, I can't complain. Driving a 4 ton truck like a Corvette more than makes up for the $100+ gas station stops. But so does room for 8 and 700 miles between fill-ups! A little time/money goes a long way with her.

Favorite Features

350 V8. Abundance of aftermarket "toys". Much cheaper and easier to work on than imports or newer SUVs/trucks. 44gal gas tank means I can pick and choose when to fill up. Plenty of room for a custom stereo and 8 adults. Went thru 12" of snow last winter with a 2WD and didn't get stuck. Chevy rules!

Suggested Improvements

Bring back a real V8. You're buying a tank. Don't expect the fuel mileage of a motorcycle out of it. Hybrids and AFM systems are just more complex systems waiting to break down. If you're buying a 8+ year old vehicle, expect things to break. They don't last forever without some investment into them!
