    I feel a bit guilty, as I have left ya'll out of the loop for the last several days. But I didn't want to jinx it, lol. I went and bought another Suburban this afternoon. I only have these two teaser pics for now. More to come tomorrow when there's daylight.

    Yeah, thanks for leaving us out of the loop. Stand up guy. Seriously, though, looking forward to the details, plans, etc., and it was nicely equipped from the factory. It's looks solid, which is always a plus.

    The last few I tried to get, I talked about them first and they all fell through. I told no one about this, lol.

    The plan for now is just some basic repairs and upgrades. It runs and drives really well, I just "thought" it would be easier to trailer it the 150 miles home. But the weight was not balanced well for my stubby trailer, and it was a swaying sumbitch the whole way home.

    And the big goal is to 4x4 convert it.

    I think I'm going to just patch the black one up and use it as the tractor and winter beater until the frame rusts.

    This '78 does have some body rot, but it's nothing serious at all. The frame is super clean. I think I'm just going to put all the 4x4 brackets and hangers on it.
