Thanks, StudDuck! this one is a little rough up close, but solid.

'91 was the last of the solid axle Suburbans, and the first year of the 4L80e trans. this one is a diesel (6.2 L) and has one ton axles (Dana 60/14 bolt full floater) with Detroit Lockers and 4.10s, and disc brakes.

You're lucky you have the heavier 4L80e instead of the earlier 700R4, aka 4L60e. That thing was a piece of junk. I had it in 3 different vehicles and all 3 failed at under 120k.

Helped my kid get his first truck yesterday. 2001 Silverado std cab short bed 4X4. He's in kid heaven as it's been lowered, has headers and glass packs, shaved tailgate, rollpan and tanneau. Hopefully he can keep this truck right side up.

It'll give him a chance the learn the basics of vehicle maintenance and I'm sure they'll be a few odds and ends to work on. And some other idiot spent a wad of money on the after market mods he would have blown his money on.

Not much of a hunting truck, but it'll get him around.

I'm trying to decide how far I'm going with the axles. It's got a Dana 60 with a locker in back and a Dana 44 closed knuckle up front with a broken knuckle on one side. If I replace the front axle I could just as well upgrade to crossover steer D60, open knuckle. Or do I look at military axles? Lol


Lets face it dave.... You're going to put in the military axles. laugh

yes, the 4L80e was part of the reason I bought this Suburban.

but I had to have this transmission rebuilt. reverse and overdrive went out on the same day, and the trans shop said it was two different failures. 'first year' type of crap that was fixed with upgraded parts. overdrive was not working when I bought it, but I knew it was just a throttle position sensor, fairly cheap and easy to fix, while knocking $1500 off the asking price. I added a big cooler and spin-on filter in the cooling circuit too.

I do kind of miss the lower first gear of the 700R4, though.

In one 700R4 I had, a quarter sized piece of a flange broke off on the torque converter and was sucked through the tranny. It did a world of hurt inside. The shop said it wasn't an uncommon problem. They rebuilt it with a heavier TC.

Picked up the new-to-me pop up truck camper. Bought it from the neighbor who is the original owner. Got it for a good deal because it needs a little bit of work to the roof, which I'll try to do this winter. I wanted the bed length version so I could easily tow the horse trailer or boat. Just used ratchet straps for the short drive home until I decide which turnbuckes I want to buy.

Just had a 2.25 inch leveling kit installed on the front end. Westin steps put on and Toyo Open Country AT's put on. Doesn't look much different, but did raise the truck where I wanted it...
My gas mileage took a little hit by about 2 MPG though. Threw off my speedo by 3 MPH

New brakes in front yesterday, new serpentine belt, idler pulley, and belt tensioner, on my 2003 F150.

New air filter element, radiator cap, and fuel filter for my 1979 Bronco today. Currently it's my fishing truck since we still have three weeks until hunting season starts back up but close enough I guess.

ND, know of any secret squirrel sources for green 73-79 Ford interior parts?

Went to the junk yard and took some rear bump stops off a Dodge D-50 and put them on the rear of my Samurai. I took rear bump stops off an early 90's Yota, redrilled the holes and put them on the front of my Samurai. The CJ springs on mine give more flex than the stock springs. I also installed a mini-spool in the rear.


D-50 vs stock rear:

Stops the springs right at level, no inversion:

Put running boards/steps on so the wife and kids can climb in. To be honest, it keeps me from having to jump up.

I breathed a sigh of relief when my check engine light and service 4WD message went out when I started it this morning. It was on all day yesterday. I patted the hood and said "good truck".
