Definitely go for newer. As other people have said, the'99 had drums in rear, ate front pads every 15K and didn't stop very well. I still own an '01 Suburban with 162K. Normal maintenance plus a fuel pump at 80K. Didn't change the pads/rotors until 120K! Kids drive it now. Wife liked the older body style so she has an '05 Yukon XL with 80K. The 5.3L is OK, not too bad on gas and you can haul anyone/anything. When the zombie apocalypse hits, I'll be ready!
