I'm very interested to see how your Suburban turns out, too!

I've thought that if I had to do this over again, I might start with a 2500 Suburban instead of another Caprice. The wide availability and compatibility of truck parts with that platform would have made this project much easier. And, there are times I've found myself wishing that I had four wheel drive (despite already having a selectable locker and mud tires).
