Bought a 2001 suburban. 150k, No rust, leather and heated seats.

I could never convince my self to buy a brand new car, Unless I was extremely rich, So I bought this for 1800. 😁

Any recommended mods?

Id leave it stock, too much weight to mod and shit breaks is my opinion.

Pcv delete? Is that good?
CAI probably after winter.
The thing already needs new cats so I'm looking into exhaust options right now.

I might sale it after winter. After I fix all the little quirks.
If I don't end up keeping it, It rides so smooth. Definitely a highway king.

Update, I got an exhaust installed (corsa) . Will be posting video/pictures later.

I need to replace the rear main seal. It leaks a little bit of oil from their. Anyone recommend a good shop for that around the northside?

Also need to change/upgrade the suspension. shocks/tie rods/lower and upper arms. Doesn’t need it but the parts look old.

2inch spacer in the rear springs, turned the torsion keys up.

I want to get 33 tires.. Maybe 35. I will be getting heavy duty Silverado springs in the rear and front, I will also be getting bigger keys, For another 2 inches. Hopefully it won't be to much for the control arms.

I will be getting rid of the running boards
I'm also looking for a push bar / grille guard without the headlight covers,so I can get a winch.

Get the extended front upper a arms, if you lift it too much without them it'll eat tires and upper ball joints. A bunch of lift kit places sell them separate. Looks good.

I'd love to have a burban or something that big as a daily. I also feel bad for every person driving towards you at night.
