I was just thinking it odd that the 1500 series Suburban has 1600 lbs more towing capacity than the H2's

I think I'm a minority but still love my LX470 pulling machine! Auto leveling, adjustable ride, only 230HP and can still drink gas as good or better than any other machine on here. Year 2000 and 73k miles.

Ok - here is my beloved '99 Eddie Bauer Expedition. I absolutely love this thing. I am the orginal owner. As you may have noticed, I removed all the beige Eddie Bauer trim and had it painted white to match the body of the truck. I also put a Street Scene front valance that closely matches the Lightning truck front bumper cover. The engine has been upgraded with a Gibson 3" Stainless Steel Catback exhaust system, BBK 25% underdrive pulleys, cold air intake, Flex-A-Lite electric fans, Superchip Microtuner. I also swapped out the stock anti-sway bars for new Hotchkis bars front and rear, bilstein shocks, slotted rotors and performance pads. The list goes on. The truck is a 4x4 riding on the stock Ford 4 corner air suspension. I recently installed the Groundforce lowering kit (yes, I lowered my 4x4) about 2.5" all around. I still have a ways to go.

Does it have the 4 wheel steering also?
I hear that is great in backing up.

'03 Navigator, all the bells and whistles with the exception of the navigation system. I opted for the 6 disc in-dash CD player and figured I could get where I am going on my own. So far I am still here and manage to get there. Thought I had a photo on this computer but I do not. Just the boat and the Blue Angels in flight.

No Quadrasteer. Only available on the 3/4 ton Yukon and Suburban. Although this one has a tighter turning radius than my '99 Denali that was shorter.

Doug, when they go it is bad. In my company truck I had one go out on a Sunday and I was 100 miles from the house, pulling a boat. Drove that bad boy back on 7 cylinders @ 75mph (company truck). If a coil wire goes bad, that cylinder stops. Brandy's truck had two go out at one time ! Replaced all 8 within 2 months, when the 7th one blow, I just replaced the last two. Good Luck.

MarkP, I have 60,000 on my work truck(04'), no problems with anything so far.

Brad, is the symptom loss of power? 72K miles on it so far and no problems (for me).

I hear the newer trucks (Dodges) are designed to run on four and only use eight when you really kick in the throttle.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
