I grew up in Suburbans - my folks bought a new one every two years whether we needed one or not from about 1978 on. Learned to drive in one, too. Thanks for the memories.

I've owned a '94 GMC C1500 Suburban for almost 5 years, picked it up with 125k, now at 152k. I'm the second owner and plan to be the last, I absolutely love it. It's perfect for Kansans like me who abhor the interstate and just love highway cruising. Glad to see you've got one in your garage, take care of it, and it'll take care of you...mostly. You'll end up putting in more money than you paid for the damn thing, but you should be used that.

I had a 1992 former fire chief suburban that I let go for a ridiculous trade in amount when I bought our Dogde mini van. I wish I had kept it, it even had an autozone remanufactured engine that I paid $5 grand to buy and have installed. It was a stripper but pretty reliable.

My grandparents had a 1997 Chevy Suburban, blue and tan 2 tone throughout my childhood. Although my parent’s 2001 Durango was always my favorite, I have so many awesome memories in that suburban which cemented my love for the GMT400 series. The good news is the Suburban is still going strong for another owner

I have a 1992 Suburban Silverado. LOVE IT! Rated to pull 15,000 pounds, and I've pulled a 4-horse trailer with it. Yes, I have trailer brakes. Low points: 1) I put on Monroe gas shocks, and they are severely under-damped. 2) It's got the old recirculation ball steering and steers like a 1992 vehicle; 2" of play in the steering wheel.

I got my first GMT400 Suburban about 15 years ago. I'm onto my third now. As much as I love these trucks the 4L60 in the 1500s is just too failure-prone. I had to rebuild the transmission in my original '96 4 times. So when the transmission in my '98 went out a couple months ago I just decided to get something a bit more durable, a '95 with a 4L80E. But if anyone wants a cheap 1998 1500 with a mild body lift and conversion van package that needs a transmission rebuild there's on in my driveway for the time being.

I had a 1998 GMC Yukon for a while but it hadn’t been taken care of before my ownership and was a lost cause. Trans, rear end, front end, everything was bad. But I told myself eventually I’d get another in better condition but...I’m not paying $8,000 for one! I’m a 23 year old kid with other priorities and I’m tired of wasting money on cars like a mundane Corolla, it’s depressing as a car enthusiast and that being nearly my only passion. But now I can’t even get a half decent reliable and comfy V8 cruiser of a truck in Texas for a half decent acceptable price. This is stupid. It’s not some classic muscle car and it hearts the heart to see it shooting in price out of the blue at an alarming rate

I just bought one 6 months ago for $1500. It needed a few small repairs, but just turned 280,000 miles. All the parts to build one can be found easy and affordably at Autozone, O'Riley, and Ebay. $12 door handles, $25 lift torsion lift. Common 6x5.5 wheels. Tons of room inside to fit people, camping gear, hell, I don't even bother sleeping in a tent. I tossed in an old mattress in the back! It's a 4 wheel drive motorhome! LOL and gets about the same gas mileage! Mine gets 8 to 10mpg! Over $20 a day in fuel! Gas is $4.50 a gallon in Seattle at this time. And I would say $1500 was a good deal, and was cheap, but I discovered Summit/Jegs/edlebrock/ and pretty much figured out how to drain my 401k! On a 25 year old truck! Haha

The sweet spot for me are the pre AFM post SBC GMT 800 Yukon/Tahoe/Suburban. I have one I got in Boise for $1700, 170K. Had the seat covered and gave it a deep clean. Heated seats, rear dvd, LS technology, cheap parts, 18mpg on road trips if you keep it under 75. Buying another one with an Eaton/Magna Charger for $4800 as a daily but future LS swap donor.

I Inherited the family 99 K1500 Suburban from my dad a few years ago and its also recently my favorite daily driver.. 4WD, Barn doors, built like a tank. Did some minor maintenance, MAF, Shocks, AT tires, oil cooler lines, and it runs like it's brand new at 160k miles. Best part is the 42 gallon tank that gets me close to a 600 mile range. Makes a great mountain adventure vehicle for trips to the snow and wilderness camping, can sleep right in the back with the seats down.Only downside is the MPGs. I may have to garage it after seeing this video though.

Does the stereo come with the factory alternator whine? 😂 I’m with you, love the ‘88-‘94 GMT400 interiors. I don’t mind the “moon gauges” however. Just nostalgia. The 8-lug ‘burbs (2500) should have the TH400 or a 4L80 in them instead of the dreaded 700R4 and 4L60. Plus, can you say “big block”? 👍🏻

The prices on all of these GMT400 GM trucks and SUVs are getting insane. Several people in one Facebook group were selling theirs for $12-16k. And they were just basic 5.7L standard cab pickups. Not the 454SS. One guy claimed to have spent $28k on one with like 15k miles on it. Where I live, the prices haven't gotten so bad, but it won't be long before people get wind of how much money they're going for down south and the prices skyrocket here for rusty old heaps. The "weird" gauges you're referring to are called "Moonies" in GMT400 fan circles. They were done away with in very late 1991. I had a 1990 with them, a friend had a 1991 with them, and now my son has an 89 with them. Ah, the power of a TBI 5.7L. They were slow, but they'd run forever, and were stupid simple. One frigid winter day several years ago, my wife's newer car refused to start, but that old 1990 C1500 I had fired right up. My wife was mad that her car didn't start, but my old truck did. I told her "Your car is smart. It took one look at how cold it is and said 'NOPE'. My old truck is like an old hound dog. Loyal, but dumb as a stump. I hit the key and it said 'Oh, you wanna go somewhere? Alright, let's go!'".

One quick correction, the Squarebodys were available with shift on the fly and auto locking hubs. It just was optional. The 2wds came with the torsion bar IFS. No idea if they rode different than the solid front axle 4x4 trucks. I had a near perfect one with over 270k miles as my first truck, and it was an awesome daily driver, never had a major issue. Sadly I was rear ended by a distracted driver and it was totaled. I got a GMT-800 Yukon XL denali as it's replacement. I wanted something a little more powerful, and the 6.0 plus AWD is has phenomenal road manners. It definitely lacks the charm, but it's nice not worrying about messing up a nice truck anymore. Hopefully someday I'll get a donor truck to put my square suburban back together. It really does seem that the early GMT400s were the best of both worlds.
