View Full Version : New Tow Rig

07-16-2014, 07:58 AM
Will be picking up a new tow rig tonight. A '99 Tahoe in excellent condition. I don't care much for the Tahoe grille, will prob replace it with a GMG grille.:smile: Has nice wheels with nearly new tires, a very nice exhaust system, interior is in great shape, and everything works. Lower intake manifold gasket and fuel pump were replaced in Dec. Seller has been commuting 100+ miles a day for the last year with it, so lots of easy highway miles.
This will be replacing my '96 K2500 Suburban. Just no need for the heavy-3/4 ton towing capacity now that I've downsized to the CV23. Fuel economy will be 16/17 instead of the Sub's 10-ish; hoping for ~14mpg towing vs 9 with the Sub. I'm hoping to have not much more than a grand in it after I sell the Sub.

14914 Can't go wrong with the Tahoe (except its not a Ford...) I bet yours was a lot better deal than my wifes too! LOL

For $3950 it was a good deal. Brought her home tonight (in the pouring rain); she drives very nice, and a good exhaust note makes any drive more pleasurable. :biggrin:
Now I just need to get the Sub in shape and get it on craigslist.
