      My daily beater.

      Come spring it's going up a bit more and if I feel like it getting the 'glass fenders I've got sitting around and a set of 37" MT/Rs. Right now it's on a tweaked 6" BDS and 35/12.50-17's. Obviously a Duramax.
      make shiny.
      If crazy paid the bills.. I'd be freaking rich.

      Maybe it is the color, but have you lowered that thing? All of the burbs/tahoes I know of look at least an inch higher. Maybe it is just my eyes.
      Nice truck, either way. The latest gen tahoe/suburban is an awesome cruiser.

      We bought it used and it was already lowered with a Ground Force lowering kit. I definatley think it looks nice, but am still considering bringing it back up to stock height. Plowed a little snow this winter, and curbs suck when parking nose in.
      Compared to 90% of the Tahoes out there where people put on 22's and no lowering kit, I just think the huge wheel gap looks funny compared to ours. Just my opinion.

      I really want a Duramax, but I'm rocking a 1996 Tahoe LT... It gets the job done and is pretty comfy to boot! Well, at least the dog really likes it.

      There is someone in the midwest who does conversions to 2500 'burbs that looks about as factory as it gets. Duramaxsuburban.com or something similar.

      I read the article is a diesel magazine while back and that guy does great work. From what I can remember is was pretty expensive for him to do the conversion.

      I think if I was to do something like that, I would just throw in a 6.5l turbo...

      Must be. This guy is asking $80k (no, not a typo) for a last-gen with d-max. http://blwilliamsllc.com/inven....html
      Sure is a bad ass rig, though!
      edit: That link quotes 45k just for the conversion. A bit too rich for my blood.

      Yeah he charg'es an insane amount, I remembered it being high but not that much. Does not seem worth the money at all.

      My current daily, '03 2500HD

      Wheels/tires were on it when I bought it, all I've added is torsion keys up front to clear the tires. I plan on swapping the wheels for a set of black pro comps and debadging it. Something like this...

      It looks a lot like the police package Tahoes a lot of the police depts around here are driving. I could be wrong but the police package Tahoes have a lower ride height. Your wifes truck on the side of the road with black steelies would get me to slam on my brakes.

      1993 K1500 Long bed 5.7 83,XXX miles.

      Here she is way overloaded with 2800 pounds of gravel in the bed, bump stops got a workout that day.
      Stock everything and currently has a non working trip, odo and fuel gauge. The odo broke on me last month. It was a gift from a very ill friend of the family and was sitting in his garage for almost 10 years.
      After 10 years I jumped it and it started up like a champ but I did not get all the bad fuel out of it bent a push rod one night when the bad gas was causing starting issues.
      I need to put in a new fuel sending unit and pump in it, I think the fuel pump will help perk it up a little
