Hey, I talked to the Ford mechanic today when I picked up an 86$ fog light replacement for the 04 Explorer. He told me the Fs had no problem. Also told me a recall was coming out on the explorer, something about the fluid that they used was not compatible with the new electronic valves in the 04 Explorer..

Geez, I really feel out of date with the '87 Suburban and '97 Blazer..

But Doug, I agree with you. The Suburban is a great tow vehicle.. This one's been up to the top of Dunraven Pass (9,000 ft above Sea Level) in 90 degree heat, pulling that trailer fully loaded with 3 weeks' supplies and the temp gauge never left dead centre.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pristine, well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "-- WOW--What a Ride!"

Here's my workhorse in Acadia National Park. It's no Defender, but it's one of the last "REAL" Land Rovers. I have a spot saved in the gargae next to the MC for the day I can finally get another D90.

A D90 would be nice...

I was a member of discoweb, but for a while there I couldn't get on it. I probably haven't been on the site in about a year. Is it up and running? I have my discoweb stickers! I had a '95 D90 wagon for a while, but for some reason I got rid of it, still trying to figure out what I was thinking. I went with an older MC so that I could afford another one in a few years.

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

Yeah, Dweb is up and running... I too was off for a while while they upgraded their servers and such.
I keep telling myself that I will have a D90 some day. We'll see.

my first tow vehicle was a 1970 110 safari station wagon..12 seater with full length roof rack and over-drive....awesome carrying ability,but could only manage 50-60 mph on the flat with the barefoot 200 behind it......going up hill was a nightmare..the q of cars behind was a joy to behold.......it was lime-green and we dipped our feet in pink paint and walked all over it....rebellious or what(hahaah).....
must try and down/upload some pics
