I still driving the same suburban. Have not been very active on the forum, but I have been putting lots of miles on. Almost 350K miles and still going strong. How have you been doing up there in the cold country?
I've got a 2008 with the stock 10.5" rear end. My conversion was complete in 2013 and I've put almost 100K on her. Best vehicle I've ever had. So versatile. Have fun with your project! MarkI'm new here. I have a 2003 Suburban 2500 6.0 gas, working on an LB7 swap. Is anyone still running the factory rear axle with a Duramax swap? or is that just a bad idea?
If it were gasoline I would not recommend ignoring the rear tank. Diesel is quite a bit more stable though. I still wouldn't ignore it, if you don't mind the diminished capacity then remove the tank and extend or replace the filler hoses with a half ton suburban with a single tank.Thanks for the answers, I think mine would have the 9.5" but I'm not sure how to tell for sure yet. I am just wondering if there are others running that with the diesel. I would like to keep it in at least for now.
I also have a question on the dual tanks. I know there are different ways to work it. Did anyone just leave the rear tank alone?? and just lose a few gallons capacity? My thought is: it would still fill through that one and it would add a few gallons of capacity but it would never empty, just down to the large factory hose that connects the tanks... if that make sense.
