1995 2500 4WD Diesel Suburban

Link to the Craigslist ad:

We are reluctantly selling Big Red, our diesel 4WD 3/4 ton Suburban. We purchased this vehicle for family adventures and it has been on many. With kids now driving themselves, we need room in the driveway. Thanks to all the members on this forum who have helped over the years in keeping her up.

Details
• Starts and runs great. We trust it and routinely take it on 250 mile round trips.
• 6.5 liter 8 cylinder turbo diesel
• Red with grey interior
• 241,000 miles. Purchased 17 years ago with 97,000 miles. Occasionally driven so miles will increase
• Oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter just changed
• 4.10 rear end with tow package wired for trailer brake controller
• LS model
• New engine dealer installed at 77,000 miles (receipt from previous owner). Engine only has 163,000+ miles on it.
• PMD relocated to fender with heatsink. This was a problem on these vehicles and this fixes it.
• 4L80-E 4speed automatic transmission, heavy-duty transmission cooler
• Pillar mount gages installed. EGT, Boost, Transmission Temp (only Boost currently working)
• Removable 3rd row seat
• Custom aluminum wheels
• DeeZee running boards
• Yokohama Geolander AT Tires with lots of tread left on them
• New Starter (June 2019)
• New Front Brakes (June 2019)
• New Hydroboost (July 2019)
• Newish Batteries (Nov 2018)
• Rear mounted receiver hitch
• Front mounted receiver hitch. Very useful sometimes.
• Floor liners
• Engine block heater
• 42 gallon fuel tank -- 600 mile range on the highway
• Manual & multiple keys
• Have spare new AC Delco fuel lift pump and oil pressure sensor
• Have a number of other spare parts and things that go along with it including a take out injection pump that I thought to have rebuilt if I ever needed it. Never have.

To fix or to know
As is typical with a vehicle this age, there are a lot of little things that are not perfect but that we tolerate. It has always been meticulously maintained mechanically but we let some mostly cosmetic things go. I've listed a few of the things that I can think of.

• Paint and clearcoat is sunburned and faded in many places
• Radio does not work
○ an aftermarket unit would give you modern things like Bluetooth and navigation
○ does have an Alpine 6 disc CD player mounted under passenger seat
• Dash has some minor cracks
• Rear bumper is rusted and needs replacement. Bumpers are cheap.
• Rear AC not blowing cold -- likely orifice is plugged. Front AC works fine and is cold
• Driver side rear barn door bent a little. Closes but not perfect. Carpet panel inside needs better attachment.
• Passenger side rear barn door latch needs replacement
• Exhaust is currently straight through. Makes it louder than normal. Could easily put a new muffler on if this is important to you.
• Motor mounts will soon need replacement -- it is about time
• Wheel well splash skirts need replacement -- have them but have not installed yet
• EGT and Transmission Temperature gauges not working -- probably a short easily fixed but gauges are cheap

This has been a great family vehicle for us. It deserves a good home with someone who truly appreciates these rigs and can take care of it. It would be a great project vehicle for someone who wanted a truly unique vehicle.
