Duramax Suburban Brotherhood

I thought it was time to start a club since I see them all over the place. If there is already a club going please let me know(I want in) so we don't reinvent the wheel.

This club is for owners of Duramax powered Suburbans/Yukons/Takoe/Escalade SUV trucks. It will be permissable to join if you owned one but have sold it since you paid your dues. I would like to hear stories of how your builds have gone, what mods you have performed, what you use your rig for and just general information about being an owner of one of these jems.

I choose to not start myself at #1 because there are those that have gone before me and deserve the honor. I will try to keep the list updated so we can keep track of who is a member and the next available number. For now I think this is a pretty exclusive club but I hope in the future it will grow.

We will not allow bashing others, heckling from the crowd, or other disruptive postings. If you are not an owner but wish to be some day then please feel free to post here. If you do not like this form of conversion and think it a waist of time then please keep those comments to your self or post them elsewhere.

Well my build was by no means the first as I was fortunate to have found another one crammed into a GMT-400 just down the road from me to look at before I tackled mine(He's not a member here, but is over at the page as well as another one in a 90's BURB). Mine is pretty basic, but took me close to 400 hours to get it all done the way I wanted it.

Hey Boise,
You need to edit and put your link for your write-up. You also partly to blame in mine for my have a Dmaxed Burb, because you did yours without two post side lift and that is where I got the idea that I could do it.
I think I may have seen one about two years ago, but not sure as I could not catch up to it.

Through the years you have contributed a great deal to the forum. I guess I have read all your posts and I thank you for your involvement and wide knowledge base.
I would like to know what your Suburban is used for. Family car, driver, RV towing, or grocery getter?

Good idea, here is the write up that I offered so many years ago.

I have used mine as a daily drive, tow rig, and grocery getter. Been on the dyno once, never been in a pull, always driven hard and put away wet.

Boise - unfortunately the new forum software doesn't allow you to edit posts after something like 5 minutes. This is a cool idea, maybe some day in the distant future I could join it, but not at this time as our Tahoe is still new (2010 w/ 3k miles). Besides I have to finish my other Frankenstein.

I use mine for pretty much everything. Unfortunately it sits alot lately as I haven't had much work so she doesn't get driven alot. Most of her driving here lately is when I'm tired of driving teh wifes G6 and want to drive something with some pep to it, or when were going camping and hauling teh travel trailer. She gets a workout though pretty much whenever it's driven.
