Finally getting around to working on this project I've had going for a while so I thought I'd get a thread going. Bear with me for a while as I get this caught up with some pics and descriptions of where I'm at already. I found a 1997 K2500 Suburban with a 7.4L/4L80e combo at 288,000 factory miles listed locally for $800. It started right up and drove under it's own power... sounded decent, and they had a clean title. I offered them $500 and drove it home.
