This tale hits home. I, too, love Suburbans. I have had a '70, '97 1500 4x4 and 2002 2500 4x4, all GMC’s. Plus I had a couple of panel trucks, a '69 Chev and a '70 GMC, close cousins to the Suburbans. Now, I have owned close to 140 vehicles in my life so far. 93 were Volvos, but there were some Pontiacs, Nissans, Toyotas, etc. Hands down, though, the best vehicle I have ever owned was that 2002 GMC 2500 Suburban. I bought it used off ebay and imported it to Canada. It was a strange duck, with sunroof and auto-on lights, etc., but a cloth interior! I loved the 6.0 litre LS1 motor for its great towing ability and also its not-too-bad gas mileage, given its 3-ton girth. I really miss it. Drove it for eight years. It was replaced by a 2014 Ford F-150 4x4 Supercrew Ecoboost which has acquitted itself as an excellent tow vehicle with great economy. It does everything well, but is just another wrench in the tool box. It can’t match the charm of the Sub, or the comfort. I really do miss the ‘Snowdrift’, as our white sub was christened by our daughter. I think my ultimate towing ride would be an '07 to '13 Chev Suburban 2500 with a few nice options.
