    If that was an Excursion I'd be thinking about trying to buy it since I'll never have time to build one
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Since they used the GMC logo, it'd be a Yukon XL, not a Suburban. (same sheet metal, either way)

    up until sometime in the late 90s both brands were Suburban
    A company I was with had an 89 3/4ton GMC suburban 454 V8 4 sp automatic when towing a 14,000 lb trailer it got 12MPG as opposed to my 89 Dodge with the 5.9 cummins with a mechanics bed loaded down would average better than 17 pulling the same load on the same trailer

    My current project (desert expedition/overland) vehicle is an 85 GMC Suburban 3/4 ton (now 1 ton) currently with a late model (91 IIRC) HMMWV surplus with franken-turbo setup. May one day convert to 6BT. My buddy with equivalent expedition style build 72 Suburban installed a 6BT 12V into with my help on some of the fab/machine work. Hard to beat those Cummins diesels.
